Our summer season has launched and so far the weather has been very kind to us. In response to your feedback we are running shows on Wednesday evenings and Sundays so I do hope you will come along to compete within your club this summer.  Our summer shows are ideal for the new and nervous horse or rider and I cannot think of many other competitions where it is so relaxed and friendly and riders really enjoy competing in the sunshine with their horses and ponies.

We had a clinic this weekend with Katie Dartnell and our next clinic is in July with Hayley Liddiard. In addition we have our regular pole work clinics with John Bowen so check out the events pages and  come along and enjoy doing some new things with your horse to have fun together.

Our club is run by volunteers and in addition to the shows and the clinics and the team events we organise we also have to ensure we are compliant with legislation. Many of you will know that new data protection laws have come into place recently and we have therefore updated our membership forms and our privacy policy accordingly. You will find a copy of our updated privacy policy here. in addition we need to ensure we have your consent to publish any photographs from shows and these forms will be available at our shows for you to sign. Please do so and return them to the Show Office the next time you are competing with us

I look forward to seeing you soon and happy riding


Best wishes
