Team Competitions - 2019

As a club we love to encourage members at all levels to take part in team competitions.

Dressage goes from Preliminary up to Advanced Medium, show jumping from 70cm to 110cm and horse trials from 80cm to 100+

The club pays half the entry fee at the qualifier. With the exception of horse trials we also enter non-qualifier teams if you want to take part but don't want to travel to a Championship.The team organiser will take care of all the entry forms and be there on the day to offer support and encouragement. All we ask in return is that you help or provide a helper for a few hours. It's a great way to meet new like minded people and hopefully have some fun.

For full details of whats involved and who to contact take a look at the 'Teams' page of the website.


Dates for this year:-

Horse Trials qualifier at Coombelands on 1st June - Championship at Swalcliffe, 2nd - 4th August

Dressage qualifier at East Byshee on 30th June - Championship at Lincoln 31st Agust - 1st September

Volunteers needed

The annual Open Horse Trials is at the lovely facilities of Coombelands on Sunday 2nd June and our Open Show on Sunday 23rd June. These competitions won't run without the help of all you wonderful volunteers!

There are lots of different jobs you can volunteer for including dressage writers, stewards, pole picking, jump judging, serving refreshments, scoring and if you are competing we need people to set up and clear up.

If you can spare a few hours, half a day or even all day please contact the organisers or any committee member. You will of course be given refreshments and hopefully have a lovely day in the sun.

Training Update

Dear All,

I have had a meeting with Ken and come up with a few dates.

With regard to flat he is happy to teach pairs or individuals, the cost would be £40 a session, so £20 if shared.  I am happy to liaise with him if you want to brush up on the flat but I have reserved the following dates with him for Show jumping courses and Xc.

As you know with Ken he will go up or down in height so everyone get something out of if but smaller jumpers would be starting 65/70cm working up towards 90cm. Bigger jumpers happy to go straight in at 90cm and work up.

Saturday 2nd March  1pm   Smaller jumpers
                                   3pm  Bigger jumpers

Saturday  16th March  1pm  Smaller Jumpers
                                     3pm  Bigger jumpers

Smaller jumpers Xc Schooling can be arranged at Petworth Schooling Course one evening when weather better.

Ideally 4 horses per session at Ken’s £15 per session

Everywhere else £15 for ken plus facility hire, I am trying to negotiate a discount for riding clubs and also ask area 13 for some money from training budget, to get that up need  to open it up to other clubs so want to see our up take first.

Please can you let me know which sessions you would like to come to.

Ken is busy, he can fill his days with lessons easily and I DO NOT want to mess him about, if we do not have enough people to fill the sessions 2 weeks prior to the session then I will cancel it, so he can re fill the slot.

Please can you indicate if you are interested in the Coombelands and Tweseldown dates so I can pre book the slots.

If you would like to chat please call me on 07769675432.

But let me know ASAP re early March dates as I am away from the 15th.

Thank you



2019 BRC Five Star Train Together Tour


Following last year’s highly successful grassroots Dressage training, BRC have once again teamed up with world class instructors, this time giving our members tuition in the Show Jumping discipline. Instructors include: Islay Auty FBHS, Jo Winfield FBHS and International Eventer Clare Chamberlayne.

Professional advice will also be given to the riders with two thirty minute talks, talking about the importance of clean sport and nutrition with NAF and the Worshipful Company of Saddlers will also be attending talking about tack.

The aim of these training days is to encourage our grassroots rider and to give them the confidence to move up the levels and eventually compete at our qualifiers and hopefully championships!

There will be four levels across the day. 

Group 1 level 1: Introduction to jumping and pole work.

Group 2 Level 2: 60cm-70cm- Jumping single jumps and short courses at home

Group 3 Level 3: 70cm-80cm- Wanting/aiming to compete at an area qualifier

Group 4 Level 4: 80-90cm- Have competed at a qualifier/BRC championship but not in the last 12 months

The training is great value at £20-25 per session (see below for price in each area)
Riders can book to attend any training session in any Area.
