The Area through Jennifer Rentoul and Lorna McEllhaney has organised some really good training for show jumping and cross country with experienced and qualified coaches like David Gatherer, Aileen Craig, Trish Harvey and David Harland. Training is at various sites around the area and available at different levels so do please have a look at the Area 1 website and make use of what is on offer! ALL INFORMATION IS ON THE AREA 1 WEBSITE: http://www.brcarea1.co.uk/2015/brc-area-1-winter-spring-training-2016/
You may have seen that BHS through BRC have organised training for Grass Roots riders, aiming at those who never really had a go at cross country riding (see BRC website). So far this has been offered only at various English venues, but if there is a demand by clubs here, Area 1 has till September to run one of these. Please let us know if you are interested in this!
Well done to all team members competing at Rockrose yesterday. No team placing this time but well done to all with a special mention to Annmarie and Sandra who placed 2nd and 3rd in elementry 44 and novice 30!!
A fun packed evening was had by all and we had a great turn out of 13 teams.
The winners were Sandra and Peter Lamb and Jan and John Currie by a narrow margin from Liz Love, Connor Bangham, Mike McCutcheon, and Caroline Wilson.
This was a fun social event but funds from riding club events go towards local charities such as Riding for the Disabled, Air Ambulance and Grass Sickness fund to name but a few that the Riding club support.
Area 1 are holding 3 SJ Courses Building evenings. 2nd February at Morris Eq, Fenwick, 26th February (*date change*) Blue Ridge Eq, Falkirk and 8th March Castle Douglas. There are still spaces available on these. Any member wishing to attend should apply using the form on the area 1 web site.
Peebles and District will refund any members the cost of the course , but in return we would need you to commit to building a course of SJ s at one of our events. We would help of course.
