Summer Fun – Mounted Badge Rallies

Exciting news – plans for ridden badge rallies are coming together and the first two sessions are now open to entries ๐Ÿ˜  Susan and Mary have kindly agreed to host some ridden badge rallies over the summer for our keen group of younger members.

The first two rallies are now open to enter for first ridden and lead rein. These will be mounted hacks (no roads) and a short mounted badge session. We hope for the next sessions to be open to more experienced members too ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’™

See the achievement badge page for full details or email Susan to register interest for the next ones: samoyce@hotmail.co.uk
