The Midland and Western Dressage Club AGM took place on the 30th of November, 2008 at 2.30pm at the Carlton-Shearwater Hotel, Ballinasloe, Co.Galway. After the minutes of last year’s AGM were read, the Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer gave their reports. From these reports, it was learned that we had a fairly good start to the competition year only to be disrupted by weather conditions during the summer and autumn. Thanks must be paid to Julia Hession and family for running the only shows held in our area during the summer, including an additional show for those needing qualifications. Our finances are in fair order even after the purchase of a trailer to transport our arenas and letters.

The officers and committee were returned without opposition with the addition Liam Grogan onto the committee.

Several topics were discussed in Any Other Business, the most important of which was the proposal from Dressage Ireland to lower the level of Open rider from Prix St. Georges to Medium. The members unanimously rejected this proposal reasoning that it could discourage the grass roots rider from riding Medium tests if doing so would put them in an Open rider category. The other topics discussed ranged from Friendly Internationals to allocation of DI points to reduction of some DI membership fees.

The meeting closed at 4pm with everyone looking forward to the coming season.
