29/11/14
Well done to Maisie Birkbeck, Poppy Carr, Emily Davies, Jade Hesler, James Richardson, Kizzy Turnbull, Jess Walton and Katie Walton for passing their riding road safety today…
26/11/14 Are any of our members interested in completing the BHS Riding and Road Safety Test?  This test allows members to complete their progressive tests all the way to A Test Level whilst many of you may not be interested in going that far some might be interested in C+ and B both require a Riding and Road Test.   It takes a minimum of 8 x 2 hr sessions some will be mounted, a mock test and eventually the exam which includes a written element – don’t panic its not as difficult as you might think and you will get good training by Krissy Bowden at Church Meadows Equestrian Centre at Crook!  Members must be 12 years old at the time of the test.  We are looking to start this in the new year and finished by the Easter Holidays, BHS require a minimum of 12 people to host an exam, I will offer this to other Branches to try and ensure the numbers.  Can you please let me know if you would be interested by email – elise54@hotmail.co.uk thank you … Lesley
