    To all members,

    Just a quick message to thank all members very much for their participation and contribution throughout the year. The interaction amongst members through the information exchange has been fantastic. The forums are viewed by thousands of people from all around the world making them a very valuable asset for the equestrian community at large. When I read about our members organizing beach outings, movie nights, trail rides, parties etc. all as a result of being a member of our forums, it does remind me of how special our forum community has become.

    None of this would be possible without our moderators. Our moderators volunteer their services and spend many hours reading posts, assisting members and moderating the forums in accordance with our code of conduct. The popularity of our forums is testimony to the level of leadership and integrity that they provide to the forum community in making the forums and our chat room a safe and happy place for all to enjoy! To our moderators I would like to say a very special “THANK YOU!!!”.**)

    I look forward to your continued support and on behalf of the moderators and myself I wish you all a happy and peaceful Christmas along with a safe and prosperous new year. :)

    Thanks Murray and Thanks Mods for all your hard work throughout the year :).

    If it wasn't for stockyard I wouldn't have some of my horses and I certainly wouldn't have the loyal friends I have now.

    If you had told me a year ago that I would meet some of the nicest and now dearest people to me on an internet forum, I would have curled up laffing.

    and yet...it's true.

    Thanks, Murray, for a forum that has rules to keep us all on track while allowing us to have an opinion. The mods that are so dedicated, not sure how on earth they take it all in.

    I would say that *cough* it is an integral part of my life!!

    Thanks Murray and Moddies

    Its been a year of ups and downs for me and the first year i have had off riding this decade, but because of these forums i have been able to stay in touch and keep up with the goings on around the place.

    I have also met some wonderful people who have become close friends, simply from chatting to them in our wonderful chatroom.
    When i thought of giving up they were there with that loving "Don't You Dare LOL"*#)

    Never before have i seen an internet community that cares so much for its members, and moddies who are so dedicated to protecting it.;)

    So From me its huge THANKS and Hoping you have a safe and Very Merry Christmas!!!:)):))

    ROLL ON 2009 - Show us what you got:D
