Dear Reining Australia Members.

Last night the final meeting of The Oceania Council for 2020 was conducted.

During that meeting a number of items were raised and subsequently voted on.

One item of particular concern was the motion that was raised from the floor which stated that “The OC make official correspondence to the NRHA to have RA removed from the NRHA (that RA would not be allowed to affiliate with NRHA) and then the subsequent removal of RA from the OC” (as the OC can only be made up of delegates representing NRHA affiliates).

This motion was seconded and was subsequently voted on.

The motion was passed with a vote of 8 in the affirmative, 4 in the negative and 2 members abstaining.

This motion itself was not part of the agenda items for the meeting.

The official correspondence from the OC to the NRHA that this motion pertains to has already been written and it was sent through to the NRHA this morning.

I have attached a copy of this letter for your perusal.

Unfortunately I am unable to confirm when the official minutes from this meeting will be made available.

However I will ensure that once they have been ratified, they will be made available for the members to read.

May I ask that if you have any concerns you wish to raise around this matter that you make contact with the NRHA’s official OC director, Samantha Oldfield.

Samantha can be contacted on the following email.

News & Past Events
This years Easter Long Weekend was the first ever Western Australian State Reining Show run by WA Reining. West Coast was lucky enough to have seven riders competing over the course of the weekend. All competitors did a great job placing in many classes and also coming away with three state champion titles and two reserve champions. We would like to extend our thanks to WA Reining for putting on a excellent show, we look forward to seeing many more of these exciting events in W.A. and to see the sport of Reining grow more in the future

West Coast Reiner's hosted a two day Don Mc Laughlin clinic in early April held at our new club grounds at the Murray Equestrian Centre in Coolup. Saturday began with bending/cross over to help with shoulder control followed by some side passing and loping circles. Everyone had great improvements over the day. Sunday was a little tricky due to some heavy showers early on but it cleared for us to all work on spins and counter canter. Don had great things to say about the arena surface which has settled nicely. We kindly thank Don and our committee for a great clinic.
