A NON-FOOD CROPS TOUR - SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT

on Fri 23rd July starting at 6.30 pm at Gosmere Farm, Newhouse Lane, Sheldwich 

A Members and Family Only Event


Farm walk to show and highlight some of the speciality oil crops being grown at Lees Court.

The Estate has been growing speciality oil crops since 2004 and has been accredited as being world leaders in growing echium which contains a sustainable source of Stearidonic Acid.
They are also trialling a variety of crops which we will see in the 'research' stage in the polytunnel and some out in trial plots in the fields.


The tour will last approximately 1 to 1.5 hour and we will be walking between the fields. Dogs are welcome, but please bring the necessary 'poo bags' as these are crops destined for pharmaceutical uses (and also water).

This is a free social event, but please RSVP Elizabeth Roberts so that we know how many people to expect.


Please wear sensible footwear for walking across fields and if it is raining ... please bring a coat!

If members wish to have a drink or eat out after, there are two pubs within a short drive - The Rose and Crown at Perry Wood (Dog Friendly) and The White Lion at Selling. Members to make their own bookings.


VENUE: Gosmere Farms, Lees Court Estate, Newhouse Lane, Sheldwich ME13 9QT

VERSATILE TREC HORSE COMPETITION on August 22nd 
at Willow Farm EC, Hansletts Lane, Faversham ME13 0RS

SCHEDULE 

ALL PHASES ON GRASS - Open to all  - Entries via https://clubentries.com/favershamrc/

 

WHAT IS VERSATILE TREC??

Versatile TREC Horse  was created to introduce riders to TREC. 
VTH is a three phase competition with set riding times but without the orienteering included in  full TREC.  It is something just a bit different to do with your horse.  

Phase 1.    Obedience Test - Ridden in a 20 x 40 arena with the emphasis is on accuracy and obedience of the horse. The test might include movements such as rein back and immobility.  Marks out of 10 are given for each movement .   Tests may be on grass or a surface and are usually printed in the schedule and may be read.  

Phase 2.    Control of Paces (MA) in this phase the horse & rider canters/trots as slowly as possible along a  2m wide marked track which may or may not be straight. Then walks back as fast as they can without breaking pace or stepping outside the track.  This phase is scored on a sliding scale according to time taken.

Phase 3.   Obstacle Course (PTV)  In this phase there is a course of 10-16 obstacles that simulate things you might find out hacking - e.g.  gate, narrow path, stile.  Each obstacle has a maximum of 10 points.   You may decline to do any obstacle or phase without being eliminated – you just get 0 for that obstacle or section as long as you inform the judge.   

Dress code for VTH is casual but you  must wear suitable boots for riding with a heel and a hat that complies with current BRC / TREC GB standards.

 

VTH Competitions are a friendly and fun one day competition with the emphasis on encouraging newcomers as well as giving experienced riders a good test of their skills. There are  classes for  Starters and Novice, Intermediate and Open.  Why not give it a try?

If you are a SE TREC Member  - This competition will go towards the S E TREC League for the Beryl Hare Trophy.
