    Dressage Training with Les Smith at Muirmill

    Muirmill Equestrian Centre, Symington, KA1 5SH

    Wednesdays – 25th February, 18th March and 29th April 2015

    30 minutes per rider (individual session) – £27.  Warm up available in 20m x 17m area prior to lesson.

    Bookings must be received by the Monday prior to training date at latest

    (23rd February / 16th March / 27th April).


    We have been notified that the European Commission have made changes to the EN1384 hat standard (this also includes BSEN1384) and it will no longer be recognised as an acceptable standard for riding hats in the UK. However, in order to phase out the use of EN1384 and/or BSEN1384 hat standards, the BRC 2015 / 2016 hat rules will be changed as follows:

    ·   There will be no changes to the accepted hat standards for 2015 and hats will continue to be tagged with the BRC blue hat tags.

    ·   However, from 1 January 2016, ALL hats must be checked and tagged with a new ORANGE BRC hat tag. All hats which only meet the standard EN1384 or BSEN1384, and do not comply with another standard off the above list, WILL NOT be accepted and therefore will not be permitted for any BRC competition. Hats which bear EN1384 or BSEN1384 along with another standard from the above list, will be tagged. For example, BSEN1384 & PAS015 (1998 or 2011) along with the Kitemark, would be acceptable, but not BSEN1384 on its own.

    ·  From 1 January 2016, no hats with a peak of any description will be permitted for the XC phase of any BRC competition. Hat covers and silks will be permitted.

    This wording will be added to the BRC 2015 Rule Book so that members have a year’s notice as to the changes that we will be implementing in 2016.

PDRC Harbro Winter Dressage Series gets underway.....

Posted by Philippa Parsons, Monday, 20th October 2014 @ 9:03am

  • With an unprecedented numbers of entries, the PDRC Harbro Winter Dressage Series got started on Sunday with the wind and rain having more say than the riders on the horse’s way of going.  With 2 arenas running in parallel, competitors braved the conditions to determine who would take home the £200 worth of prizes, kindly donated by Harbro Country Stores as sponsors of the event.

    As you can see in the table, the results in all classes were extremely close with only 1% point or less being between 1st and 2nd place. The top score of the day goes to Donna Fairbairn, breaking the 70% barrier with ease to win the Intro A class.  Lynsey Smith had a fantastic day winning both the Preliminary 4 and Novice 22 classes.  Hot on her heels were Melanie Gilchrist and Jocelyn Gray with: 2nd and 3rd respectively in the Prelim 4 and 3rd and 2nd respectively in the Novice 22 class. Liz Fletcher took 4th in the Prelim 4 and Karen Barret in the Novice 22.
