Training sessions will vary from month to month, some focusing on the challenges we meet when jumping courses (dog legs, related distances, doubles etc), other sessions will be working on improving you and your horse's techniques over different fences (getting to and from a fence with the correct canter, grids and gymnastic exercises).

ANNOUNCING THE HOOFPRINTS HUNT  
 

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.
