AREA 10 COMBINED TRAINING QUALIFIER on  April 2nd 2022 at Felbridge EC, East Grinstead RH19 2NU


For the sixth  year the Faversham and District Riding Club is organising  Area 10 Combined Training Qualifier.

Please make a note in your Diary for Saturday 2nd April 2022.

We booked  Felbridge Show Centre once again. We realise this is not local but it is an ideal venue for the event as we need five all weather surfaced arenas to run the event efficiently and Felbridge is really the only centre that can accommodate this.


There are both Junior and Senior teams and individual classes and the schedule will be out soon.
So whether you are looking to be in one of our Club teams or you are able to give up your time and help on the day, we really do need you!
This event takes an army of riders, supporters,  and helpers to really make it happen!

Extra  classes for individuals this year - 

  • to compete in a Prelim Dressage test with the higher SJ height of 85cm

  • to compete in a Novice Dressage test with the lower SJ height of 75cm


Entries can be made by clubs for teams of three/four or as individuals both junior and senior. Each team consists of two riders in each section. 

Prelim section will ride the a Dressage Test and Jump 75cm 

Novice section will ride the a Dressage Test and Jump 85cm


A huge thank you to everyone who has been part of this event in the past, it really is appreciated and we hope you can join us again!
Please get in touch if you would like to help or if you would like to compete.
The Prelim entries will need to be in by the early March.

To keep us all active and 'going' through the darker, wintery months, we have come up with another 'Treasure Hunt' Type Challenge called Hoofprinthunt... the clue is in the name...

The Hoofprint Winter Challenge will run from 1st December 2021 to 31st January 2022

#FDRChoofprinthunt Winter Challenge – a type of treasure hunt using photos and videos.

The entry fee is £16 Members and £20 Non-Members, £6 (£10 of non-members fee) will go towards FDRC club funds and £10 will go to the charity Prince Fluffy Kareem Horse and Donkey Charity.

The photographs and videos have to be taken between the competition dates (no old photos) and must include your horse (or be very obvious you are on your horse). Horses can be ridden or in-hand to get the photographs/videos.

If you do not have a horse, you can still take part in using a model or toy horse, but you will be given a handicap of minus 100points.

Photos are to be added to the photo folder in the FDRC Riding Club Facebook page and must include your name and the name of the horse in the photo.

If you are not on Facebook, then please WhatsApp photographs to 07813880373 (along with your name/horse name) and I will upload them for you.


The list of items will not be released until the 1st December, and a Tally Up Tuesday will list the leaders and scores to keep you all motivated. More items will be released on Jan 1st.
