Well done to all our members who competed at the Sotterley Teams Showjumping Friendly on 13th May – lots of success and fun and rosettes with friends in the sun, what more could you ask for!?! Full results here.  Also well done to those members who donned their cross country colours and went to the East Essex PC Hunter Trial at Stratford Hills – again, lots of smiles and good to see all the cross country clinic practice paying off!


Help / Volunteers / Sponsorship needed at Area 8 Dressage – Sunday 5th August 2018

Essex and Suffolk PC will be once again hosting the Area 8 Dressage competition this year on Sunday 5th August 2018 – this is substantial event to run and requires lots of people to help from tack and ring stewards, runners and dressage writers. They are not hard jobs, in fact its a really nice way to meet lots of lovely PC members from our Area and their beautiful ponies, and some of the roles like collecting scoresheets is a great way for even our younger members to be involved as well. Even offering some help for an hour or two makes a huge difference.

If you cannot offer physical help, how about offering some sponsorship e.g. making a donation to the lovely flower displays around the arenas or sponsoring the rosettes for a class?

Please please do support your club – contact Wendy Toogood at in the first instance.  Thanks very much to everyone who has helped in the past and we are looking forward to some more great team work this year!
