2019 Riding Club Camp

After the great success of last year, Horsham RC will be returning to Parwood Equestrian Centre on 5th/6th/7th July for our annual summer camp.

The facilities are superb with large indoor and outdoor schools, xc course, gallops and stables fit for a king! Check out the Parwood website for more info.

The format will include a mix of dressage and showjumping with cross country on the final day. Instructors confirmed are Emma Roche, Melissa Beer, Russell Cooper and Ruth starey.

You can expect a fun-filled weekend of expert training, first class facilities, quality time with your pony and most importantly lots of laughs camping with like minded horsey friends!

This is always a very popular event and places will be on a strict first-come-first-serve basis with priority for full members. Keep an eye out for the booking form to be released on the website in the near future. £50 deposit will secure your place. All abilities are welcome.

2019 Training

Dear HDRC members,

2019 TRAINING – working towards the eventing season

At the AGM I muted the idea of specific event training, all three elements with one instructor.

I have done a bit of research and am proposing the following, but am open to suggestions, tweaking etc.  It is OUR club so suggestions are welcome.

In the first instance I would like to see what interest there is as obviously it has to be viable financially, but we aren’t here to make a profit so you pay the cost of the training, Area 13 might be up for a bit of help so that might help the finances!

I have spoken with Ken Spencer, briefly, and he is happy in principle to take this training, but I need to know numbers etc so we can plan a schedule to fit in with him, his liveries, his lessons and eventing so the earlier we do this the better.

My proposal is to have two groups….70/80cm and 90/100cm, if you have not been taught by Ken before he is excellent at putting jumps up and down and will happily accommodate all in the lesson pushing on those who want but keeping it smaller for those that are perhaps not so brave.  The aim is to work towards the ODE which Carol Porter and her team run at Coombelands in June.

My aim is to run something every 2/3 weeks, again depending on numbers maybe some at weekend and some during the week for those lucky enough to not work Monday to Friday.

Flat and basic SJ can be done at Ken’s yard in Coolham, and we can course hire at Coombelands.  Xc this time of year is limited but Tweseldown and Munstead are open, again when summer arrives Coombelands is available.

In the first instance can you email me your expression of interest, the height group you wish to be in and any other suggestions.

My email is michawilkinson@hotmail.com

Please do this by Saturday 26th January 2019, so I can take numbers and suggestions to the next committee meeting on the 28th January 2019.

Many thanks

Michelle Wilkinson

Helen Millichamp - Dressage Diva

We are extremely lucky at Horsham RC to have some very talented riders and Helen Millichamp is one of them having a marvellous year on her rides. Not only did she manage to retain her win at Swalcliffe in the 100+ BRC Horse Trials Championship she also bettered it by being the overall winner on Julian Thorpe's super horse Feach Ger Boy.


Helen has been bringing on her own young horse that she bought as a 3 year old, Jalado's Star or more fondly known as Thelma. Thelma is proving to be a dressage star and has had an incredible first year competing in British Dressage. They were part of the Southern Team that won the BD Senior Inter Regionals in May, they won the Preliminary at the Hickstead Summer Regionals and were picked again to represent the Southern Team at the BD Senior Home International Championships gaining an individual 3rd place against very strong competition.

Ruth Starey passes her BHS Senior Equitation and Senior Coaching assessments

Huge Congratulations to Horsham & District RC's member Ruth Starey for passing her British Horse Society Senior Equitation and Senior Coaching assessments.

Ruth runs a small livery yard and competes her horses to different levels including BS foxhunter and BE novice and is hoping to progress two to intermediate level as soon as the weather permits. Ruth has regularly represented Horsham at Riding Club Championships over the past years all on horses she produces herself. Ruth is inspired through her passion to learn and to push herself to new levels and will be hoping to take her stable managers assessment soon. She loves to teach and see people progress, this brings Ruth a lot of joy. 

Ruth is not just content to be a succesful rider and coach she is also a qualified Equine Body Worker. An Equine Sports Massage has proved to have many benefits for your horse including improved gait and mobility, improved circulation, relief of tension and much more.


If you would like to have a lesson with Ruth or discuss the benefit of a sports massage for your horse contact her on 07708 066089 or email rseventing@gmail.com
