Moorhouse competitor info & times

We’ve had a another very good entry for our Winter TREC competition this weekend.

Directions
The venue post code is DN6 7HA. It is located in the village of Moorhouse, just a short drive from the A1. If you are coming from the A1, take the exit at Junction 38, signposted for Wakefield A638. Follow the road into the village of Hampole and take the first left turn onto Hampole Field Lane, which leads to Moorhouse Equestrian Centre.  Caution, the road is quite narrow and bendy.

Arrival at the Venue
When you arrive at Moorhouse Arena, please park as close together as possible, with wagons only at the top end. Please do not leave ANYTHING in the car park – hay, haylage, droppings etc. should be taken home with you.

Times, Arena and Rosettes
We’ll do our best to keep to time on the day, so please help us by being ready to start early if required. Start times are here
There is an indoor warm up with access to the main arena and even a small standing area where you can see into the main arena. Please keep an eye on the competitors before you and listen to the collecting ring steward’s instructions, so we don’t keep our kind volunteer judges waiting unnecessarily. Number bibs can be collected from the warm viewing gallery before you start, please return these afterwards and then you can pick up your competitor rosette and scoresheets.

Refreshments
The café, serving hot and cold food, will be open during the day so hopefully you’ll be well fed and watered! Please bring some cash with you.

Course Walking
The course can be walked in the short break between each class and hopefully from 9.00am on the day. Please look at the course plan and read the judging sheets before this if possible. Any questions please ask. We’re happy to give help and advice on the day and want everyone to have fun. In the affiliated classes the judges can’t help once you start the course.

Obstacles
See your obstacle lists for each class here. The majority of the obstacles we are using for the competition can be found in the TREC GB rulebook, and will be displayed in the viewing gallery. Any not in the rulebook will also have a marking scheme available.

Photographer
There isn’t an official photographer this time

Scores, Results and Winter TREC League Scores
These will be displayed as soon as possible. Individual score sheets for every rider and a competitor rosette for the day will be available in the warm viewing gallery at the end of each class, once the scores have been checked. If you cannot stay to collect these and want them posted please leave a SAE with a LARGE LETTER stamp or a £1 coin.

Help would really be appreciated at the end if you are still around to pack up and clear away.

We’re really looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, but if you have to withdraw please let us know by phone as soon as possible. Sheila tel: 07780 904857.

Moorhouse Results

Another cold day at Moorhouse saw a mixture of experienced and less so riders tackle Dave’s challenging PTV on Sunday. One of my favourite obstacles, the side pass, made a comeback and received favourable comments about being a good skill for horse and rider. All types of horses were on show and some of the largest showed how it’s possible to do any obstacle with some training. Well done to all riders.

With his trusty writer Jackie Bennett, they stayed nearly to time and the last rider was done before 5.00pm. Liz and Mick Payne, with their neighbour Claire, helped Dave and I assemble the course Saturday evening and then scored, timed and sorted low branches all day. Judith Fisher had the morning slot helping before going for her horse to do the final classes. Thanks also to Ian Macalindin for helping to pack away. Without these people’s help it would be impossible to run these events.

Results

Here’s a great video showing a variety of novice and experienced combinations tackling the courses at this event – thanks Vicki Marshall!

We’ll run another Moorhouse Arena TREC on 27 January, the schedule will be emailed to members once it is available.
