AND NOW FOR A NEW WEEKDAY ACTIVITY
MUSICAL QUADRILLE FROM SCRATCH! - no dates yet
I have run lots of these for Maidstone RC and my old yard, and the idea is to put together a simple routine, and then try it out. We do lots of practice of the basics, and although sometimes we do get to canter this would only be if suitable for everyone involved.
So here is the info you need for our Quadrille from scratch / Musical ride at Saddlesdane, Thursday May 12th, ready to ride at 11am - we have booked for an hour.
We will practice a few patterns, then put together a routine which hopefully someone will video for us.
If it goes well we can do another, maybe an evening one for a Jubilee theme. All you need is a horse which is happy in company [not nappy or inclined to kick] with steering, accelerator and brakes. Not necessarily a ' Dressage Horse'
If everyone is happy we might incl canter but not necessarily. Tack - whatever you are happy with. Plain saddlecloths. White would be good? Navy / dark blue tops, and light breeches [ white / beige / light grey] If we do a display we can fine tune this. NO long whips [ they can upset other horses]
We can go up to 8 horses, but 4 will be enough, and I will ride or direct as needed to balance numbers.
£20 - entry on clubentries shortly

Original date for this put out as May 12th but due to lameness / injury issues of several horses it was cancelled
As we have ongoing interest in this activity a new date will be issued soon. Please look out for it on the Whats On page or our Facebook page.
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.

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.
