Clear Round Day
Sunday 6th Feb
Due to the popularity of this event we have managed to squeeze another date in during the winter. This is your chance to jump around a course without any pressure so is an ideal opportunity for young riders, green horses or anyone who feels a bit rusty and would like to get some practise in. It also allows horses to see the scary fillers or just get some exercise after a long winter! For those riders hoping to compete in the Puissance at Spurs at the end of March, it will also be your last opportunity to have a go at the red wall! The schedule can be found on the events page of our website. Cost is £2 a round or £3 for a clear round rosette.)
Unaffiliated Dressage Evening
Friday 25th Feb
Our next dressage will be on this date. Please get your entries in asap as lack of entries by the closing date may mean we will not run the competition. We are happy to take late entries but have added an extra £1 to the entry fees for late payment or additions. The schedule can be located on website.
Half term activities
23rd and 25th Feb
Over the half term holidays we will be running various activity mornings for pony riders. We will be holding an efficiency test/badge preparation morning on the 23rd. This will be your chance to prepare and practise what you need to know for the actual day when the tests/badges are taken. This will be dismounted unless we feel you need some extra help. Costing £15 and running from 10am – 12am. Full details can be found at the office.
The actual test/badge day takes place on the 25th Feb and allows you to put all you have learned into practise! Starting from 10am, times will be allocated depending on what test/badge you are taking. Badges and felts will be presented on passing!
From 7pm-8pm. This session is aimed at riders who have achieved a proficient level of riding and who wish to develop their understanding of this discipline. These sessions are different to normal lessons in that the focus is on one particular aspect of dressage during the evening eg use of the seat. Videos are also used to help riders to understand the technical aspects of the sport better.
Costs £12 on own horse or £20 to use one of ours. This clinic is limited on numbers so book early.
