Dressage Update

The in-house Summer Dressage League started with the April competition and has successfully run in May and June too.

It has been good to see our club members and their lovely horses out competing again. We have had successful days and we thank our judges and all our helpers who made the days possible.

We run two dressage leagues, a summer league and a winter league. Also included in the league competition will be the ROR competitors.

Radford’s has proved to be a popular venue for our competitions and we have been lucky enough to book it for the rest of the year on the following dates:
Summer League dates
Sunday 4th July
Saturday 21st August
Sunday 19th September

The points for the League are calculated as for British Dressage:
60.00 – 61.99% 1 point
62.00 – 63.99% 2 points
64.00 – 65.99% 3 points
66.00 – 67.99% 4 points
68.00 – 69.99% 5 points
70.00 – 71.99% 6 points

We have some members competing at the BRC Summer Area Dressage competition soon. Please contact Janet Warner/Maureen Coxon if you are interested in representing the club or hearing more about future area competitions.

We look forward to a successful year of in-house dressage competitions aimed at all levels from introductory level to Elementary level, so come and have a go. It is very relaxed with lots of encouragement.

Once again, thank you to our judges and helpers. Without you we would not be able to run these events.

Christmas Cracker Show

Christmas Crackers 2019

Despite it being a freezing cold and windy day with intermittent rain and hail showers, Christmas Crackers was great fun, as always.
Some members went to incredible efforts to dress themselves and their trusty steeds up in Christmas attire. In comparison, I felt like a bit of a cop-out in my giant Christmas pudding onesie, although possibly quite snuggly compared to others, even though King Dave and I did our show in sideways hail stones
There was a lovely mix of members with horses in-hand and ridden and it was fantastic to meet new members there too. Welcome, and I promise it’s not always so cold!
Thank you Elspeth for organising and the Burgoyne Family at Rhôs for hosting
