What a busy half term…

The Club Day was well attended and great fun, with a ride in the woods, jumping and craftwork


Meanwhile the older ones were training for cross country at Lincomb. emily lincomb lincomb

Then there was cross country for all abilities at The Isle where Zara and Katie went great guns. And we rounded off the week with show jumping at Netley where we only had three falls (no injuries) so that wasn’t too bad.

What a great  fun ride at Eaton Mascott on the last Sunday of April –  really well organised, great route and superb weather – what more could we ask!

Well done to our teams at the Rodbaston Triangular Competition at the beginning of April. They came fourth and second in Classes 7 and 8. Not a bad start to the season.
