This event is in the past.
This is not a PDRC event
Beginners/introductory course to Trec with Lynda Mays
For all those who attended PMRA AGM you will have heard Lynda Mays, a PMRA member, announce that she is planning to hold a Trec event for the PMRA.
Trec is a challenging and enjoyable equestrian sport based on the skills required for hacking - navigational competence, control of horse’s paces and the ability to tackle a variety of obstacles. These skills are tested over three phases – orienteering on horseback, control of paces and cross-country/obstacle course.
Lynda plans to hold a beginners course to Trec on Saturday 30th June at Kirkton Manor Livery Yard. There would be a tutorial at the beginning of the day followed by a friendly competition. Lynda has explained that at this event those who participate only have to do the obstacles they want to so nobody is under pressure. People can still train and compete on the day without doing everything. Control of paces is trying to do the fastest walk you can and the slowest canter. You go on your own along a measured track of usually 150 meters If people are worried about cantering they can elect not to do the canter and just trot their pony or horse for the experience and it gets them started. People do this at competitions too, especially with youngsters.
This would be a completely new event for the PMRA and I am looking looking to see if any of our members/friends would be interested in taking part on the day? Lynda has stated that basic riding skills woud be required and that it can be done by lead rein.
There would be an entry fee of £10 for the day.
If you have any further queries please feel free to phone Lynda on 01835 822105 and she would be happy to answer any questions. She is probably more likely to to be available in the evening and is happy to take calls up to 10pm.
Hope to hear from you soon
