Another well-deserved accolade for our Area Rep.  This time with an honourable (and equally well-deserved) mention for Edward.  We really are blessed in this Area !

DAKS

“And the winner of the 2018 DAKS award goes to the remarkable and dedicated Mounted Games Chairman and Area 4 Rep, Ros Slinger, with a special mention to the wise strength of Edward Slinger. A formidable act to emulate. Thank you Ros and Edward. DAKS London Royal Windsor Horse Show #PonyClubMointedGames

 

 

Ros

 

Mounted Games Chairman Rosalind Slinger was presented with the Torch Trophy Trust Special Award, in recognition for her love of Mounted Games, at the Torch Trophy Trust Annual Celebration of the Volunteers in British Sport. 

Ros first became involved with The Pony Club as a teenager, being a Member of the Bisley and Sandown Chase and later Chiddingfold Farmers. As an adult she became the District Commissioner for Blackburn and District and Area Rep for Area 4, which is ongoing.

Ros became a member of the Mounted Games Committee and, shortly after, Mounted Games Chairman. Her enthusiasm, commitment and sportsmanship have all shone in her management and growth of Mounted Games. She has overseen the running of the Prince Philip Cup at Horse of the Year Show, the DAKS Mounted Games at the Royal Windsor Horse Show as well as countless Area, Zone and Championship competitions.

She has also chaired the selection of International Mounted Games Exchange teams with trips to Canada, Australia, USA and Ireland, and she has organised training days for Members and Officials.

Congratulations and thank you from everyone at The Pony Club

And this citation doesn’t even cover the half of it ! 

We don’t realise just how lucky we are in Area 4 to have Ros as our Area Rep.
