Winter league results & TREC GB news

WELL DONE to everyone who supported our winter events, it’s been a long winter to keep a horse in work & maintain motivation to get out competing. Nobody managed to get to all six, but Katie Norwell-Hall and Jacob Simpson each managed an impressive five events, and they were rewarded for their tenacity! It was fantastic to see how many members brought a helper or gave up an event to come and help, it really was appreciated by all the organisers.

Each category winner will be sent a £25 voucher for Performance Equestrian soon (please bear with the committee while we arrange this as the planned presentation can’t go ahead) – you’ll be able to spoil your horse or yourself with some brand new equipment ready for more adventures! Full results are here.sally basil.

On to disappointing updates now – due to coronavirus, TREC GB have advised member clubs to suspend all mounted & unmounted activity until mid May. Camp has been postponed to the autumn and everyone who had booked on has been sent an email about the potential new dates. Stapleton TREC on 17/5 falls into ‘mid May’ but given the fast-evolving situation with the outbreak it is unlikely to go ahead on that date as things stand.

A glimmer of good news is that the current BHS advice is to keep riding, providing you can follow the guidance around hygiene & social distancing. We will endeavour to keep you updated as things change, but for now there’s no excuse not to be practising your map copying, navigation skills (but don’t go anywhere too remote), control of paces & non-jumping obstacles so that you’re ready and raring to go as soon as the season starts.
