Here at the CCSHA we work hard to bring new opportunities to all of our members, regardless of your chosen discipline. We love see you out competing in your chosen fields and showing the true versatility of the Clydie Cross. With this in mind, we are excited to let you know that we are launching our new Annual High Point Award!
Members will now be able to collect points in their favourite equestrian disciplines, compete for the title of Horse of the Year and win a great range of prizes. The program will run from the 1st July to the 30th June and we will announce our first group of winners at the 2019 AGM.
We have a great incentives for stud owners, young stock owners and our junior members – in fact there’s something for everyone.
