Thanks for entering and supporting this competition at a new venue for WHTG.
Directions – the address for the venue is Middleton Park EC, Middleton Grove, Leeds LS11 5TZ, and you can use this link to get directions from your starting point.
Parking – it is tight at this venue, so please park as directed and as close as you can reasonably manage. Please bring a poop scoop/gloves and clear up after your horse. Horses must not be left unattended tied outside horseboxes.
Dogs are not allowed, and there is strictly no smoking or vaping on site at all. If you need a nicotine fix please go beyond the main gates on to Middleton Grove.
Food – we don’t have a caterer, so bring sandwiches if you’re here a while, but we will have tea/coffee/hot chocolate as well as Ruth’s home made goodies on sale in the results room from 10am (first door on the right inside the main entrance) in aid of Prince Fluffy Kareem, and there are some vending machines on site so please bring some cash with you.
Toilets & viewing gallery are inside the main entrance also, just follow the corridor round to the right for both. If you don’t have time to walk the course then viewing the course from above in the gallery is a good way to work out where you’re going to go.
Start times– please be at the indoor arena gate 1 minute before your start time to keep us running on schedule.
Results will be posted in the results room as soon as possible after the class has finished – this is Ruth’s job so please don’t interrupt her while she is adding up!
Evie is running one training group at 3.30pm which currently has a space – contact email@example.com to book it, it’s £25 for an hour of tuition in a group of three.
Course plans & obstacle lists will be published here on Saturday at 7pm – please check back then and print or take a phone screenshot of your courses, as time to walk the course will be very limited.
Well done to all riders who turned out in the vile weather that greeted us on Sunday!
Pictured is Joanne Bond with Sienna of Sunnyneuk at their first ever TREC competition. They won all three classes they entered, and with a perfect 100/100 PTV score in the Novice Horse class! Definitely a partnership to watch for the future.
