Area 7 Winter Dressage Qualifier – Sat 17th February 2018, Keysoe

Dressage Riders please read on!

Would you like to enter the Area Winter Dressage Competition with a chance to qualify for the BRC Championships next year? You can enter as an Individual or join up with 3 others to form a team.

If you are interested in riding for your club please send your name, mobile number, horse name (as on passport), the test you want to ride and whether you wish to be in a team, go as an individual or don’t mind, to Janice at janrjjmm@btinternet.com no later than Fri 22nd Dec. We do the entries for you once we have sorted out who is interested in taking part.

If you would like to be part of a team, please make sure you are available for the Championship date should the team qualify!!

The organisers require 2 helpers per team this year and those riding as individuals will each be scheduled for 1 hour of helping around their test time. This is a vital part of participating in the Area events and you and/or your team can be disqualified if the helper slot is not filled. Please be prepared to help or to find others to help!!

You can enter a class in both the Novice and the Intermediate qualifiying events (both held on the same day). Entry fees are £17 per class. Please be aware that the club pay an advanced entry fee in addition to this which commits the place and so payment from you must be received by January 25th 2018 latest!

It’s a good fun day out and a relaxed atmosphere and there are usually spare spaces in trailers/lorries for transport. If there is interest I will try to schedule a training day at Grange Farm to run through the tests. Why not have a go!!

DRESSAGE COMPETITION CANCELLED DUE TO POOR WEATHER

Please note that the dressage competition due to take place tomorrow – Sat 9th December – has been cancelled

The weather forecast is very very cold overnight and not rising much above zero all day. We aren’t confident that the arena surface will be suitable for riding.

All entries can be rolled over to the next competition. Please let Janice know. If you want to cancel your entry we can destroy your cheque or refund your payment. NB if you paid online then unfortunately we cannot return your £1.50 booking fee as that is an administration fee taken by the company running onine entries on our behalf.

3 Phase Trec Competition – 8th October

A big thankyou to everyone who helped out at the 3-phase trec competition. There were more helpers than competitors but those who rode had a great time – lots of smiley faces at the end – and they were very appreciative of everyone giving up their time so that they could compete. A special thankyou to Karen Barker without whom none of these events would be possible, plus Sara Murphy and Sue Gregg who helped with the course routes as well as being there all day (and the stalwart Graham Best who keeps Karen’s husband Richard company on the MA.). Special thank you also to Karen’s daughter Nicki who gave up her weekend to help out. Well done all  intrepid treccies for having a go. It’s is a lot harder out of the arena!

Results – results for 3 phase trec 8th Oct 2017

Have a Go Side Saddle Day

Have a Go Side Saddle Day

What a fantastic day we all had when the Area 12 Side Saddle Association came to visit. 10 members had the most amazing time, most got to walk, trot and canter (feeling very glamorous – albeit a bit unsteady at times) and a few even had a jump!!

A superb session – highly recommended

Great Result at the BRC National Championships

Well what a weekend – not only did we have the Burghley Horse Trials on our doorstep, but we had some fab competitors who went along to the BRC National Champs in Lincoln – and what a day they had.

Our senior team (Claire Ludeks, Debbie Robinson, Shayni Caffell and Jo Meikle) only went and clinched second place in the 80cm show-jumping, with Claire also being placed 2nd individually.

Nikki Webb who had won the Area qualifier with the only double clear round in the 90cm class, achieved a pretty decent score of 4 faults over a tough and big course.

Claire Marcus and Debbie Robinson were also dancing in the pairs dressage – and managed a creditable 12th place.

How proud are we.

Well done girls
