Welcome Back – mentoring starts 4th July

Welcome Back – mentoring starts 4th July

Its been a long time and we hope you are all managing to stay safe and sane.

I am sure you have been following announcements by British Riding Clubs as to what we can and can’t do as an affiliated club, and having discussed things with Grange Farm and our mentors, we are pleased to announce that we are now able to re-start mentoring and clinics.

Of course we need to be mindful of all the various guidance on safety and it will look a bit different. We hope to offer small groups (no more than 3-4, paired sessions and where appropriate, one-to-ones) but things will be taken very slowly and carefully.

Please take the time to read through our guidance on how we plan to run these sessions and what you need to agree to (this may of course evolve as things change).

Sat 4th July – Cathy Lammie
Sun 5th July – Claire Llewelyn

Sun 5th July- Rachel Finch
Sat 11th July – Tom Fray
Sun 12th July – Teresa Edmonds

The length of session, group size and cost will all depend on the level of interest.

Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.

Take care and …….hopefully….welcome back

Covid-19 Update – ALL Riding Club Activities suspended until further notice

Covid-19 Update – ALL Riding Club Activities suspended until further notice

In light of today’s statement from British Riding Clubs, Wittering Academy have taken the difficult decision to suspend ALL activities including competitions and mentoring for the time being. Although our events (training at least) are small with limited close contact and held outdoors, the last thing we want to do is put anyone at risk and potentially put additional pressure on our NHS should an accident occur.
During this time, enjoy your ponios best you can, keep safe and keep well.
Your WARC committee

Please see below the latest statement regarding the current situation in relation to the Coronavirus.

Mentoring Dates 2020

Mentoring Dates 2020

MENTORING DATES Jan-Apr 2020

Here you go folks

These are the dates for the next few months

You will notice a new name – Teresa Edmonds – we needed to find a new flatwork/dressage mentor as we sadly lost Jane Ellis due to her having so many other commitments that it was becoming harder and harder for her to commit the time to us too. Teresa is a British Dressage Level 3 accredited coach and is based in Wisbech. She has ridden and trained her own horse to Intermediate 1, and works with all levels from happy hackers to advanced dressage and eventing, nervous riders and/or horses. Some of our members have had lessons with her when they have attended BD training camps and rate her very highly and she is very friendly and helpful.

If any of you fancied a change and wanted to move to mentoring with Teresa, just let me know

Helpers Hall of Fame 2019
28 Dec

Helpers Hall of Fame 2019

So as we come to the end of 2019, a huge thank you from your committee for all the hours you have volunteered at our various events and competitions – in fact an amazing 834 hours over the year. We simply can’t run anything without your valuable support.

Do remember as part of your membership we do ask that you commit to helping out for at least one event in the year – many of you do so much more, some of you not so – let’s make 2020 the year that all of members do just a little bit.

1 hour of help is rewarded with 1 credit/£ towards mentoring, training and clinics.

Here is the hall of fame for 2019 – the list shows the credits everyone has at year-end once any credits you have already redeemed for mentoring sessions or clinics have been deducted.

Dressage Sat 14th December 2019 – CANCELLED

Very disappointed to say that the dressage competition tomorrow is cancelled. The weather forecast now shows 40+mph winds and hail at Wittering and we have to make the decision now. We will use the same schedule for the January 12 competition so please let Janice know if you would like to carry forward or have a refund.
