Fun and Friendly Show Jumping Competition at Rhôs Equestrian on 19th March.
Thanks to members who turned out for our first show jumping competition of the year.
It was a sunny, fresh day and an ideal opportunity for a catch up with friends over coffee and cake after a turn in the arena.
Well done to all and especially red rosette recipients: Elspeth (90cm), Becky (80cm), Amanda (70cm) and Paula (60cm). Thanks to Meg for course design and Sally for judging and delicious home made cakes! Thanks also to our helpers and host, Sue.
Our club show jumps are kept at Rhôs and available for members to use there.
Elspeth has also set up a gymnastic show jump course on the adjacent grass. You can book in with her for a lesson, or hire the arena or grass area via Sue at Rhôs Equestrian. We may put on further friendly competitions later in the year if there are enough members wishing to compete.
Here are the results from our Fun and Friendly Show Jumping Competition last weekend.
Well done to everyone that took part!

A few members attended a fun evening of working equitation and horse agility at Rhos arena under the supervision of Elspeth Carr.
Elspeth has set up a lot of obstacles e.g. walking over plastic, opening a pretend gate, carrying a flag, steering around a small space, picking up a hoop with a long pole.
We are putting on another of these in September with a fun competition at the end.
Please attend, it is a great way to desensitise your horse and can be done in hand if you have a youngster. It should be a lot of fun.
