Warmer weather, made the last exam of the year a more comfortable experience for our two Centre Operators and three Ride Leaders attending Crieff Hydro on Friday 2nd December.
Sue MacDonald from The Uist Community Riding Centre and Sheena Thomson, head girl at Argyll Adventure, became our 69th and 70th successful Operator when they passed their exam. The exam started in 1992 with the first successful candidate being Liz Simpson who is now the Chief Examiner for the Society. The examination deals with all aspects of owning and running a riding centre and is not easily achieved. Huge congratulations to both Sue and Sheena. The photograph shows Sheena and Sue with Liz in the indoor arena, where they are observing the group of riders and discussing suitable training programmes to develop the riders.
