Notes to parents and riders – Senior A team

We’re currently updating our schedule for 2018 – please note, those competing in Senior A team are expected to be available for a number of competitions leading up to Areas, and also N Herefordshire’s competition  in June (date tbc) as competition practise before Zones (assuming qualification)

** Gatcombe – important note – we fully intend to take a strong senior team to Gatcombe this year, even though it will mean leaving summer camp a day early – we will be asking riders early on for their availability and, if A team riders are not available, we will plan training running up to Gatcombe with different riders playing a full part in this competition. It’s always a difficult juggle leading up to champs with family holidays, but we have to get team training and competitions in during these weeks to give a best performance at Champs IF we qualify through Areas and Zones **
