Welcome to the latest Severn Vale Riding Club newsletter. In this issue:
Current Rally Programme
Farriers, Feet and Food Evening
Friday 9th – Monday 12th JUNE 2017
Camp is again to be held at Pontispool near Taunton. It starts with dinner on the Friday evening, has lessons in flatwork, show jumping and cross country (all optional) on Saturday, Sunday and Monday morning, finishing after lunch on Monday.
Standard cabin accommodation, food for you, hay and straw for your horse and all lessons are included in the price, £250.
For an additional cost I have also booked the Longbarn (www.somersetlongbarn.co.uk) which can accommodate a maximum of 12 people in twin rooms. The Longbarn has an indoor pool, hot tub etc and is the height of luxury, however it doesn’t come cheap and will be £180 per person for the 3 nights in addition to the cost of camp (total £420) The facilities are strictly only available to those staying in the Longbarn.
The Longbarn is payable in full at the time of booking and sadly if you cannot attend it is up to the individual to find a replacement and recoup their money. In addition £75 camp deposit. It is currently full but I will be holding a waiting list.
All bookings are strictly first come first served, your place will only be reserved on receipt of a deposit of £75 for camp and payment in full for the additional accommodation.
All deposits must be accompanied by your name, address, email address and contact number.
Please make cheques payable to SVRC, (PayPal/Equo not available) and send to Carolyn Taylor, Northwood Farm, Swan Lane, Winterbourne, Bristol BS36 1RW (enquiries Carolyn 07771 902176).
