Cake and Prizewinners at Naphill Riding Club’s 40th Anniversary AGM

Posted on Monday, December 2, 2013 by Heather Dodd

The Fortieth Annual General Meeting of the Naphill Riding Club took place on Tuesday 12 November 2013 in Longwick Village Hall.  Over sixty members attended and enjoyed a ploughman’s supper before the AGM began.

The Chairman, Martin Liggins, in his annual report, said that the club had had another very successful year with membership increasing and members taking part in a variety of events, such as trail rides, members shows and dressage as well as Area Riding Club qualifiers where members had qualified for the championships.

The club has acquired many lovely cups and trophies which were presented to members for their various achievements during the year.

Apollo Shield (trail rides) Lucy Brown

Club Dressage series overall winners:

Walk and Trot: Nici Bailey, Prelim:  Kathy Bristow, Novice: Jo Cheese

Futter Endeavour Cup (most improved) Angela Chignall

Sommerholder Trophy (most points gained over the year) Kathy Bristow

Kelly Memorial Cup (best turnout) Sue Molloy

Wilkinson Rose Bowl (helping) Jenny Bowie

Committee Cup Janet Bayley

Phil Tietjen Trophy(horse of the year) Spot – Merryn Polley

Barbara Tietjen Trophy (veteran horse of the year) Melanie Brown

Misbourne Shield Alison Pitcher

Josh for Fun Cup (Milton Keynes Camp) Colette Bassinder

The Trish Smith Cup (funniest event) was awarded to Adrian Reynolds for his entertainment at the Naphill Riding Club annual trip to Norfolk.

Members who qualified for championships were presented with keeper trophies.

President, Pat Fowler, thanked the committee for their efforts during the year and particularly Martin Liggins, the outgoing Chairman, for his hard work in leading the club forward.  Martin had served his three years as Chairman and therefore had to stand down – he needed a well earned rest!

Pat Fowler then presided over the forming of a new committee and the appointment of the new Chairman.  Members were pleased that Alison Stenning was willing to take on the mantle of Chairman and was voted in unanimously by the members.

Gifts were presented to the outgoing committee members as a thank you for all their hard work and commitment whilst on the committee.


The evening was rounded off with members celebrating forty years of the Naphill Riding Club and Martin Liggins cutting the birthday cake.
