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

Wendy Neath   07802 676 896   or  01227 379647

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.

POR ONLY TREC EVENT at IVY COTTAGE, WHATSOLE STREET, ELMSTED TN25 5JW
ON SUNDAY AUGUST 21st

PLEASE NOTE DUE TO RESTRICED ACCESS WE CANNOT ACCOMODATE BOXES OVER 3.5 tons ON THE SHOWGROUND – HACKERS, TRAILERS & SMALL BOXES ONLY PLEASE.

This is an unaffiliated  POR (orienteering)   only competition which will be judged in accordance with TREC GB Rules.

LEVEL 1 with both Novice and Open Classes, Individuals & Pairs.
It will be run over a 10 to 15Km route through farmland, woods and quiet, country lanes.


Novice Classes are aimed at riders with little or no experience of POR / Full TREC and competitors will have a pre-drawn map.

Open Classes may have faster speeds, a more technical/longer route, have some technical questions to answer and are aimed at those with experience of TREC POR phase.
Competitors will have to copy the map

So if you have never done TREC at have only done the Arena TREC in the winter but never tried the orienteering section this is for you!  
A gentle step into doing a Full TREC at some point in the future.
If, however, you are an experienced TRECCIE this is a good practice and will be technical enough to be challenging.

Entry numbers will be limited so early entry is advised.

SCHEDULE OUT VERY  SOON
