The Arab Horse Society
As an employer, the Arab Horse Society has a duty of care for the health and safety of its staff. The Society also has a legal responsibility to provide a safe and secure working environment for staff and will not tolerate unacceptable or aggressive behaviour (verbal or written), from members towards the Society’s staff, particularly threatening or abusive language, personal threats towards staff or malicious allegations relating to members of staff made on social media.
The Society’s staff have the right to be treated with courtesy and respect at all times. They must be able to do their jobs without risk of physical, verbal, written or social media abuse. This sort of behaviour will not be tolerated.
The decision to cancel the remainder of our National Show this year was made with the heaviest of hearts but done out of respect for the family involved and due to very little enthusiasm for it's continuance from competitors and officials.
There have been some very kind gestures towards not claiming refunds from the AHS - it is however recognised that time and costs have been incurred to attend the National Show and the fact that Saturday was cancelled was great disappointment for some.
It is therefore correct that if members wish to claim refunds they are fully entitled to do so. Any claims should be addressed by email to Linda Nicholson, firstname.lastname@example.org, at Agriculture House by 23rd August, 2019
You will have heard by now of the very sad loss of Ryan Jones at the National Show on Saturday. Words will never be adequate to express the sorrow and pain that is being felt by the family and all his friends in the arabian horse world.
We send our deepest condolences to the Jones family and to his partner Sue.
Due to this tragic event it was decided to cancel the rest of the show on compassionate grounds.
It is with some reluctance that the Trustees have decided that Membership Fees need to be reviewed for 2019. The current level of fees have remained the same for the last twelve years while our costs of providing the membership services have increased on many fronts, from postage to print costs and the costs of office administration in sending out the information we are required to do.
It was decided to keep any increase to the minimum so from 2019 all fees will rise by £3 for every membership with a larger rise only applying to any new Life Membership. The Trustees are conscious of the financial obligations incurred by members in caring for their horses however we hope that members will understand that after fees being held since 2007 with no increases a small adjustment was inevitable at some time. The Trustees wish to thank all the members who continue to support the Society in the services and work we undertake.
The Arabian Performance Horse Parade at the National Heritage Centre’s O’Sullevan Arena in Newmarket took place on 28 April featuring 23 show champions and winning horses in all ridden disciplines, kindly sponsored by Shadwell Stud.
