Due to the wintry weather we have been experiencing, we have not set dates for the spring TRSS exams during March. We are now hoping for a better April and will be discussing possible dates following the Easter school holidays when hopefully the weather will be more settled.
If you have not already done so, can you please contact the office if you think you will have candidates ready to do an exam to allow us to pick an appropriate venue.

When we set the date for the final exam of the season, we did not realise how many candidates we had to cater for. As a result, we will be holding a further examination for Ride Leader/Senior Ride Leader depending on candidates forward, at Glen Tanar in Aboyne towards the end of the year, weather permitting.
If anyone wishes to join the remaining candidates at Aboyne, please let me know through the messaging system on the website or through the TRSS email. We have places available at the moment.
You might have to be prepared to ride in the snow but as the group on Arran show, anything is possible.

Examiners Dilla Patrick
and Sarah Basford
had a long day when 10 candidates came forward to sit their Ride Leader examination. In addition, Marissa Connelly
completed the units she needed to add to her stage 2 examination to gain her Ride Leader and is going to work part time at Crieff when required.
Candidates travelled from the island of Tiree, Tain, Kincraig, Morar and Argyll to join local candidates who did not have to get out of bed so early. We were delighted when all candidates passed their exams which is a record as we always have one or two who have to resit. Well done everyone and thank you to our examiners who worked their socks off to complete the timetable before darkness fell.
The last group stretch their legs before dismounting at the end of a very long day.Congratulations to the following candidates:Janis MacArthur
and Julie MacInnes
from the Tiree Trekking Centre who had to endure a ferry trip and a long drive to reach Crieff. Sitting exams from the Islands is not easy and it takes a lot of organising and determination to carry it off, not to mention the overnights and arranging cover at home. Shelagh Sharman
and Kathleen Opdeweegh
from Silver Sands Trekking Centre up in Morar. Another long drive and overnight as the exams start at 8.30amAimee Patience
from Highlands Unbridled in Tain. She could probably sleep on the long road home as she was not driving but it makes it a very long day when you finish so late.Eilidh Cadden
from Alvie Stables in Kingcraig. Eilidh had expected to sit her exam earlier in the year but unfortunately we had to cancel due to the dates being unsuitable for most candidates. She was very happy to receive her certificate and was going off to work as an Elf over the Christmas season as the centre has wound down for winter. Aime Latona
is going to join Wilder Ways for the 2018 season and is looking forward to a summer of adventure riding in some of the most scenic areas in Scotland. Enjoy.Alice MacLennan
from Crieff Hydro Stables. Alice is the newest member of the Hydro stable staff and is glad to have her first exam under her belt. Emma Finander
and Abby Peters
are both volunteers from Crieff Hydro stables and wanted to sit their exam to enable them to be more useful round the yard. Well done girls on coming forward and passing your exams.
Not all candidates appear on the group photograph as some had gone off to see to horses.
