VVRC Camp at Berriewood Farm

July saw another successful Riding Club Camp at Berriewood, with 30 attendees!

Lessons began on Friday afternoon for some with Polework and Showjumping lessons with Kim Webster, with other campers arriving through the evening.

After a busy afternoon the hungry bunch were fed by a delivery from the local pub, followed by a ‘few’ drinks and some samples for our 4 legged friends from Horse Hage.

Saturday saw an early start for some, with others feeling a little worse for ware!

We welcomed Sally Poppe, Janet Green and Nicky Shipp for a full day of teaching. We also had a visit from Sarah, a Topspec Rep, who weighed our horses and provided us with some goodies, which I think was a highlight for some members.

The evening saw a demonstration from Emily Pryce, where we welcomed some extra members for the evening.  After the informative demonstration from Emily, a selection of food was delivered.

With the weather on our side, the campers enjoyed an evening Yoga session outside hosted by Kat, followed by numerous drinks and chit chat.

 On Sunday we got some weather that wasn’t ordered but this didn’t dampen our spirits! With instruction from Ticky Fletcher, Elspeth Carr & Nicky Shipp it was another great day.

 Camp drew to a close with lots of smiles from our members and even suggestions of a longer camp or 2 camps!!!

 Thanks to Penny for the fantastic venue and facilities, all of our instructors, our special guests Emily, Sarah and Martha Lily and last but certainly not least Sally whom I could not have organised camp without.

 Look forward to seeing you all next year.
