Hickstead Combined Training / Showjumping / dressage show

What a great day ! We have not held a combined training competition for some time but in response to several requests from members we held one yesterday at Hickstead - all on surfaces , with dressage in the huge polo arena, and jumping in their newly revamped ring 4. Just to add something for everyone we also held dressage and show jumping competitions to fill the day - and it was full !

We were blessed with perfect weather for riding, and there was a great turnout from the club in terms of willing, smiley volunteers (thank you again) and those who took the opportunity to compete at Hickstead - you don't get the chance very often ! Plus we had huge support from non members as most of our comptitions are open to everyone  - thanks for coming and supporting our event.

For those who competed - your results are now on the website and if you want me to send you your rossie or dressage sheet just send me a SAE to Max Gayler, Mount Pleasant Farm,Parish Lane, Pease Pottage RH10 5NY.

For those who stayed at home to watch Badminton - you should have come - we had the luxury of Hickstead's clubhouse and TV all day too !

Thanks to Hickstead for the opportunity to use their wonderful facilities. We have more events booked for here - later in the year so register with the website or better still become a HDRC member and you will not miss a thing !

Don't forget you can now do the "full monty " - all three disciplines by entering our Horse Trials on Sunday 24th May at Coombelands. Classes range from 2'6" to 3'3". See event diary for more information but be QUICK - entries close on friday 15th May !
