The inaugural winner of the Pattie Curtis Trophy for the "Sir Lancelot" qualifier was Jean Smith riding Simply Sam. Emma Harford, secretary of both SSA Area 14 and Talland School of Equitation is seen here presenting the trophy to Lisa Holden , Sam's owner.
It is with enormous sadness that we announce the sudden and peaceful passing of Pattie Curtis on Tuesday 31st January 2012. Pattie has been so much a part of Talland EC & the side saddle community for the last fifty years, and will be fondly remembered.
In Patty's memory, Area 14 took up a collection to have a Trophy in her name for the Area 14 "Sir Lancelot" qualifier.
Tower Trophies of Evesham (and online) are providing some sponsorship for the points series. Anyone buying a trophy stating they are from SSA Area 14 could eventually eventually result in us receiving a freebie!!!
