Arena Eventing – Sunay 4th Nov

Firstly I’d like to say a huge thank you to our wonderful unpaid volunteers for  their support and help on what has to be the busiest competition of 2018 !

An amazing 20 clear rounds to start with and the large class sizes  saw us having to cancel the 1m class due to lack of daylight!

I have fully recovered and enjoyed my (well earned) cider & curry sunday night and am pleased to present the results …..

AE results nov 18

 

(and that’s Arena Eventing and not Accident & Emergency )

 

Photos were taken by Isobel at www.eriena.com

Course builder and Judge was Rachel Finch – one of our mentors if you’re interested in regular training.

 

Our membership year starts 1st January and the form is  here …WARC 2019 Membership Form

 

Hope to se you at all at our next event – All day clear round starting promptly at 10am  Sunday 11th November.

Show Jumping League Results 2018

Show jumping at home

 

After what can only be described as a weather-eventful year -one cancelled due to snow, one curtailed due to wind and rain, and one in blazing sunshine, we have finished our show jumping competition year. I hope you all had fun, and whilst we head into winter, I can remind you the Area 7 Winter Qualifier (members only) will be at Keysoe on 26th Jan. 

Of course a big thank you to Tom Fray for designing and building the course, to all the members who came out and helped set up, run on the day, and clear away, and finally to Ruth and Tania for organising.

Congratulations to all who took part , I have great pleasure in  announcing the results ….

Trec Competitor Information for 21st Oct

The times for Sunday’s competition are on the event page on the calendar as well as on our Facebook page

If you are unfamiliar with Grange Farm, please park in the Jumpcross parking field on the left of the drive, before getting to the car park. (Do not park in the carpark.) The competition is being held in the sunken arena (close to the parking area) and there will be a warm up area marked out alongside on the grass. Please do not park close to the warm up area – there is plenty of space on the field.
Please arrive in good time as we will not be able to wait for competitors, and keep an eye on what is happening in the arena. If there are some withdrawals on the day, we may be ahead of the timetable. The collecting ring steward will be able to advise you. Please clear up after your horse and leave your dogs at home. Toilets are available in the main yard. Ask for directions if you are not sure.
There will be a catering van on site close to the secretary’s base. Collect your number from the secretary and return to her for results and rosettes. Please don’t hassle our lovely scorer – she will get results out as soon as she can!
There are two new obstacles this year – the ticket punch which is a TrecGB official obstacle and the ‘Push through’ which is a Wittering special. Details of how to ride these will be posted on the board in the secretary’s base.

Please remember to thank our lovely volunteers who are giving up their time and we hope you have an enjoyable day!

2018 Body Protector and hat rules

Body Protectors

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 !

 

 

Hats

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 !
