Please make a brew and take a moment to read our Spring Newsletter – loads going on
Dates are now arranged for the next block of mentoring sessions
Everyone should know what group they are in and please let me know whether you can attend your next session (or if you can’t) ideally a week before so I can arrange groups and times. If you are a new member and I haven’t yet been in touch with you – please do email me and we can sort out what you want to do.
Entries on the day
Schedule here – WARC SJ – Schedule May 18
TIMES AVAILABLE – DressageTimesmay18
2 arenas and loads of classes for this competition so please come along and have a go. There are TWO classes at every level for everyone to enter; you don’t need to have qualified to enter as those competitors will be in a separate section to everyone else. A list of those who have qualified is above or contact Janice if you are not sure!
Lets make this a great show!!

Remember from 1 January, only BETA 2009 purple labels will be accepted. There is one exception to this – Exo Body Cages are only compliant with BETA 2000 purple label, but they will continue to be allowed.
Interestingly the Beta official website also says
Body protectors should be replaced at least every three to five years, after which the impact absorption properties of the foam may have started to decline.
If you should have a heavy fall, your body protector should be checked immediately for dents. The foam will expand back to its original shape within 30 minutes; but if a dent is showing on examination, then it’s likely that this part of the garment has lost its impact absorption properties and should be replaced.
Of course here’s hoping none of you have had a fall bad enough to dent your body protector !
BRC, BE and PC will be tagging with the same AQUA coloured tags for 2018. This means that each of the three member bodies will accept each other’s tag – thus reducing the need for separate tags for each organisation and a rainbow on your hat !
