We still have places left for the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery visit on the 4th October. The cost is ยฃ25 pp with a coach there and back. E-mail [email protected] to book. We will open up to non members at the end of July.
Hello how do I find out what arena my lesson is in today, I canโ€™t see it listed anywhere. Ta x
How long from renewing membership is it before you can book via ECPRO? Green light from vet following injury to re start clinics ๐Ÿฅณ
Hi, I wonder if I could ask the club members about hat mounted safety cameras and if people would recommend any particular brand? Iโ€™ve had some pretty unpleasant experiences with drivers recently on normally quiet country lanes and think I may have to invest in one as a safety measure. Thanks for you advice!
Hi how do we find out which arena our lesson is in tomorrow pls x
Congratulations to Jak Loving, representing WRC, winner at the Intermediate winter Show Jumping championships๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘.
A Masterclass day spent with Ingrid Klimke. An opportunity to learn from one of the modern masters who shows such empathy and passion for the education and welfare of how a horse should be trained. Simple exercises with a focus on correct principles. With a no nonsense approach to the role of the rider in the process. Thank You to Equestrian Management Agency for facilitating us to have these insight days.

Pesto was the ultimate gentleman in this environment allowing me to gain so much from the session.

Lots to now inspire for my own coaching sessions watch out Wellington Riding Club ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

If you had a clinic booked you should have had a message and a credit will be issued

Following the sad news of the passing of Her Majesty The Queen, we will be closed on Friday 9th September as a mark of respect.

Our condolences are with the Royal Family at this time.


Phillip came to me today,
and said it was time to go.
I looked at him and smiled,
as i whispered that "I know"

I then turned and looked behind me,
and seen I was asleep.
All my Family were around me,
and I could hear them weep.

I gently touched each shoulder,
with Phillip by my side.
Then I turned away and walked,
with My Angel guide.

Phillip held my hand,
as he lead the way,
to a world where King's and Queens,
are Monarch's every day.

I was given a crown to wear
or a Halo known by some.
The difference is up here,
they are worn by everyone.

I felt a sense of peace,
my reign had seen its end.
70 years I had served my Country,
as the peoples friend.

Thank you for the years,
for all your time and love.
Now I am one of two again,
in our Palace up above.

โ—Equine Influenza Flu Vaccination Shortage โ—

There is currently a shortage of equine flu vaccine within the UK which has been caused by supply chain issues with one of the major manufacturers.

The BHS and BRC have been working closely with the British Equine Veterinary Association and British Equestrian to mitigate the impact that this shortage will have in the coming months. Details of the plans which have been put in place by the BHS and BRC can be found here:

If you have any questions please contact us using the details included in the FAQs in this weblink.

For those who are competing with other BEF member bodies further details can be found on the BEF website.


Clinics for September are now live to book on ecpro ๐Ÿ˜€

*** Cancelled due to hard ground***


Well done to everyone who took part in the DTM this morning, you all looked great ๐Ÿ˜Š


With the hot weather due this weekend here are some great tips from NAF โ˜€๏ธ

๐—ฅ๐—ฒ๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฆ๐˜„๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐˜!
Bodily fluids are lost when our horses and ponies sweat, which includes what we refer to as Electrolytes. These are made up of Sodium, Chloride, Potassium, Magnesium and Calcium.
The more they sweat the more likely they are to dehydrate. This is due to the bodyโ€™s blood vessels constricting to prevent further fluid loss which stops the heat from escaping and so the individual feels even hotter as opposed to cooling down. An energy sapping experience and a dangerous one.
Blood salt concentrations provide a thirst triggering mechanism, and so unlike us as humans when our equine friends require water their brains may not get the signal to tell them to drink!

NAF Recommend Electro Salts! Replace the sweat fast thanks to the inclusion of Dextrose, commonly used and proven in human trials included in Electro Salts to support absorption, it also helps with palatability which can be a great way to get salts into tired or fussy individuals.

๐—ช๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—Ÿ๐—ถ๐—ณ๐—ฒ!
Essential to life, water makes up around 65 - 75% of the horseโ€™s bodyweight.
A lack of water is seen initially as reduced appetite and poor performance; but can lead to depression, bone and cartilage damage, poor horn integrity and, ultimately, be fatal to the animal if not rehydrated.
Water is essential not only to hydration itself, but all aspects of general health. Research now also links a lack of fresh water directly to an increase in gastric ulcers; so for all these reasons itโ€™s vital that there is access to clean, fresh water available in both the field and stable!

๐—™๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—›๐—ผ๐˜ ๐—›๐—ผ๐˜ ๐—›๐—ผ๐˜!
Warmer weather can account for around 3 times the losses of colder climates. With around 4 litres of sweat lost in an hour of little to no work, to 16 litres from hard work. Put a hot, humid climate into the mix and you can increase these figures further.
NAF recommend Electro Salts to replace the sweat FAST!
We do not recommend using a very concentrated form of electrolytes (i.e. a paste) as this can actually draw water out of the gut as it passes through, hence leaving the horse more dehydrated than he was before.

For more information, please contact NAF

While Dotty has some time off Bumble has taken over some of her duties, one of her jobs is finding out what or who our club want to support this year. She has asked me to find out who the local charities are so we can make a short list for the AGM.


2 amazing demos on 18th Feb
FREE for all riding club members - followed by wine, food and the AGM

Kylie Roddy
A demonstration which shows how I teach young horses to look at fences and hold their line. I hope to show how they learn to stay on the line from a young age. This early learnt system is what connects and helps the horses later on in life when they are advancing theyโ€™re jumping and cross country skills whilst holding the line set by the rider. In todayโ€™s sport an essential skill at any level

David Sheerin

- How do we maintain our โ€˜Social Licenseโ€™ in the equine world.

With greater pressure from activists about the use of equines within high level sport, what we do with our horses has never been more in the spotlight. David will be highlighting areas that we should challenge ourselves now in everyday practices and be ready when the use of horses in recreation is also challenged.

Full details are on the agm event - would be great if you could indicate if your able to come or I may need to drink all the wine and eat all the chilli ๐Ÿคฃ


**** Combined training qualifier**** This involves riding a dressage test and then jumping a round of show jumps.
It would be on 19th March at Bury Farm, LU7 9BT
I need an idea by next Thursday of people interested in this qualifier to see that itโ€™s viable to run by the organiser:
Classes as follows:

Senior teams (1 x P7 +75, 1 x P14 + 75,1 x N24 + 85, 1 x N30 + 85);
Junior teams (1 x P7 +75, 1 x P14 + 75,1 x N24 + 85, 1 x N30 + 85) ;
Senior and junior individuals in any of the of test/height combinations in the team competition;
Senior and Junior individuals in N27 + 75 and P12 + 85.
Competitors can enter once as part of a team and once as an individual or twice as an individual. In both cases, the dressage test must be different but the SJ height can be the same.


Myself and Bumble wanted to make sure that all current members are aware of our members group.


Bumble has just informed me that the January/February clinics are now live๐Ÿ˜


Who is joining us, need to get some idea on numbers?
