Club Update

With the relaxation of Covid guidance and constraints we pleased to announce that we are up and running again, within government guidelines.   Clearly schedules published before the pandemic are sadly no longer of use.

 

Training

We are back up and running with our regular training sessions and have tried to organise a wide variety of group and individual sessions to cover most disciplines. Training is MEMBERS only. Please make the most of what we have to offer, there is at least one session on per week and different days, times and venues. We are using the club field as much as possible to keep training affordable for our members.

Shows

We are held our first socially distanced dressage show on the 5th which went well.

23rd August we have the Eventathon, this year we feel we cannot do the fundraising and prize giving element to the extent we have before, but we will put on a fun event. We are currently looking in to whether we are able to allow non-members to attend shows again.

Club Field
We are catching up with the maintenance at the field and Pete has been doing a fab job repairing and building new XC fences. If you are able to lend a hand at any time please let us know as we still have plenty to do. Thank you to those who have helped so far.

Area 5
We are still waiting for the schedule for the potential showjumping show at Solihull on 25th/26th July which Emma Spencer will organise teams for. Donna is also well underway with organising the Dressage to Music Team for 2nd August.

Membership
We are still accepting new members. Adults £27.50 and juniors £22.50, form available for download here

Local Lockdowns
We are currently not able to accept entries or bookings from anyone within the Leicester local lockdown area. We will continue to follow the guidance from British Riding Clubs and the Government on how we run our events, which obviously means any planned activities are subject to change.

A Word from the Chair

We are now one of the biggest clubs in Area 5 and also offer the most for our members. With training, day rallies, club shows Eventathon, Hunter Trials and winter dressage and let’s not forget all those Area 5 qualifiers and Championships.

I would like to thank all of our sponsors for 2018 who provided us with lovely rosettes, trophies and fantastic prizes. I would also like to thank all the local venues who allow us to use their facilities for training on a regular basis, our members have really enjoyed and benefited from regular affordable training and it would not be possible without somewhere to hold it.

The club continues investing in improvements, last year we built a 60cm XC course and added more 70cm XC fences. We have also bought some new show jumps to keep updating our collection.

I would like to say a massive thank you to our committee who have all worked extremely hard last year putting on so many events. It was lovely to hear so many positive comments at the autumn hunter trial which makes all the hard work worth it. Also thank you to all the volunteers who helped last year, none of the events would happen without volunteers whether committee members or not.

This will be my third year as chair, I feel we have learned and improved on previous years and also found other things to work on and improve for this year. I hope the club continues to be well supported. We are lucky to have such a strong and supportive committee.

This year we are once again holding qualifiers for the STARS Showing Championships held at Liverpool. Last year some of our members competed there and had a fabulous weekend with wonderful results!

We look forward to seeing you at our club shows.

Remember the BRC motto Train Together, Compete Together, Have Fun Together
