Join us at our members only Halloween themed show later this month at Leyland Court. Classes include pick your own dressage, dressage to music, Prix Caprilli (dressage with a jumping twist) and freestyle fancy dress dressage. Low key event; ideal for new members, those with young or inexperienced horses, novice or nervous riders, or anyone looking to have some fun in a relaxed setting.
If you want to take part, make sure you renew your membership if you haven't already.
Would you like to learn more about riding test and style jumping and have a free day out? There is space for four people to watch a BRC Master Judge training day on Sunday 1 November, at Kings Equestrian in Herefordshire.
Demo riders will be put through their paces before getting judges feedback. A great opportunity for those who want to know what judges are looking for in these disciplines.
There might also be a space left on the First Aid course at Badminton village hall on Sunday 18 October, designed with riders in mind. Again, contact Shelagh.
