Weeknight Training Series with Karen Nicholas

We are planning to hold a series of weekly weeknight training sessions suitable for those aiming for 85/90cm or Area Dressage. The programme will vary from one week to the next (details will be posted) but will include: Flat training, SJ, Test riding, gridwork, competition prep including for Area competitions, Gatcombe SJ and possibly Blenheim Eventer Challenge later in the season. The location will generally be Upper Norton but we may relocate to Kings, Hurcott Farm or Lincomb depending on our requirements.

Cost generally £15 but may vary according to location.

The first of these are on 8th, 15th and 22nd May. These will start at 6pm and last for one hour. We anticipate that there will be 2 groups -a 6pm and a 7pm group.

We appreciate not everyone can make the same day of the week and so we will try and vary the days.

Thank you !

Mini Bluebell XC fun ride

We are very lucky to have been invited by Mrs G Britten-Long to hold our own CoTHPC Mini Bluebell XC ride on Saturday 26th May at 11am.

We expect this to be a leisurely amble through beautiful countryside with a picnic stop, mini achievement badge and bluebell rosette! Family, friends and dogs on leads are very welcome.

The cost is £10 and a donation will be made by our branch to the Midlands Air Ambulance.

Please book via the Events Booking page if you would like to come. Directions are below  please look at these and print them out if necessary because the postcode does not take you to the correct place. Thank you!
