In memoriam: Bryan Struss

We are greatly saddened to hear of the death of Bryan Struss, who has been an ECCTG member for over fifty years. His association with our Club and the interest, time, work and service he contributed have been remarkable – he was a committee member from 1973 to 1976, Treasurer from 1976 until 1983, Chairman from 1983 until 2001 and President from 2001 until 2013 when he retired from the position. He maintained his interest and support in retirement – kept a close eye on us and was always delighted to hear of Club activities and successes. He was a member of the Area 20 Committee and then held the position of Chairman, and was a prominent figure in Northern Dressage and at local BE events, particularly Bradwall. His Dressage scoring was legendary – Bryan had only to look at a sheet and it was done!!

It is indeed the end of an era for the ECCTG; his special award given each year for particular contribution to the Club in any capacity is now a fitting commemoration as he takes his place in the Riding Clubs Hall of Fame.

Dressage competition – 16th May

New competition added to the calendar; 16th May at Somerford. Prelim, novice and elementary, all long arenas
