INFORMATIVE TALK BY FIONA WATKINS on HORSE NUTRITION
7.00pm on TUESDAY 30th APRIL at SADDLESDANE EC CAFE


Fiona Watkins, BSc (Hons), Pro. Dip., is a fully qualified, professional UK-based Independent Equine Nutritionist and she has always been a keen horse lover and started riding at an early age. Her interest in horses and ponies has never dwindled, even with a career lasting fifteen years in corporate business. Ten years ago, she set about putting her passion into practice – with the goal of improving the welfare of equines through nutrition.

 

She is currently the first person to have been awarded a Professional Diploma from The Open College of Equine Studies (TOCES) in Equine Nutrition. This course took Fiona over two years to complete and unlike other qualifications available in Equine Science, solely concentrates on the physiology of the equine digestive system and associated nutrition for various disciplines. She, therefore, delivers to her clients, a concise working and practical knowledge of all aspects of equine nutrition together with real-life experience from a client base of over five hundred equines.

Refreshments will be available from the cafe

The shop is open until 6.30pm

Price £10 Members/£12 Non-Members

NEW NEW NEW  - OPEN TO ALL
VERSATILE TREC HORSE COMPETITION on SAT. JULY 13th 
at BIGBERRY FARM, Bigbury Rd, Canterbury CT4 7NE
Versatile TREC is a three phase competition but instead of orienteering there is an Obedience Test 
which is ridden in a 20 x40 arena.  

Phase 1:
Obedience Test which is judged on accuracy and obedience consisting of a series of
movements including some related to TREC obstacles e.g. rein back, immobility.  
The tests will be included in the schedule for your convenience.

Phase 2:
MA (or Control of Paces) proceeding along a marked corridor of 25m (In Hand) and
between 50 to 150m (Ridden) first at canter  (trot for In Hand), as slowly as
possible and then back at walk as fast as possible, both without breaking pace
or stepping outside the corridor.

Phase 3:
PTV (Obstacle Course) This is a course of 10 – 16 obstacles which can represent
obstacles you meet on a hack e.g. a gate, a log, narrow corridor, passing roadworks etc. 
N. B. Unlike xc or jumping you may opt out of doing an obstacle as long as you tell the Judge,
you will just get 0 for that obstacle.

The Schedule will be out soon and then entries can open.
Hope to see lots of you having a go at this event.  
Ideal for those new to TREC and those more experienced riders.
There will be classes for all levels, In Hand, Novice, Intermediate & Open

Please email Faversham.rc@gmail.com if you have any queries.
