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.
Revised times for Trec this Saturday –
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
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.
We have now arranged all the mentoring dates from now until Christmas. They are all on the calendar but here is a handy print out for your fridge door!!
Angela will usually send a round robin email or text a week or so in advance but if you could be proactive and let her know if you are planning to attend your session then that would be great.
If you are a new members and not yet assigned to a mentor – please contact Angela direct
Schedule now available – book your place soon – don’t miss out
