To keep you all up to date with where we are as a club in these current times and to try and answer some questions.
We are monitoring the situation closely and going by the guideance available to us from the various equestrian organisations such as British Dressage, British Horse Society and the Britsh Equestrian Federation.
As such we are not making any long term announcements or descisions on the shows until we approach each one.
Showground Field Rides
We have run a couple of succesful Field Ride Days and have just announced another next sunday (28th June) and one on the 12th July. You must book for these online via HorseMonkey.
We have also taken the guidelines from British Dressage and will be back with our first Dressage Competition on the 25th July as planned in the schedule, but as this is the first one, the classes and format will be slightly different and numbers in each class will be limited.
The tests this time round are:
- Intro New (Intro A)
- Intro Open (Intro B)
- Prelim New (P1)
- Prelim Open (P7)
- Novice New (N24)
- Novice Open (N27)
These classes are open to members and non-members, juniors or seniors. Placing will be undertaken as a class unless the class has 3 or more juniors or seniors in the class.
On the question of Shows, we are still reviewing.
We had hoped to run on the 26th July, but under the current guidelines we cannot, but we are not at the moment saying no. We will look at the guideline as they evolve over the next 2 weeks and review. There may be changes that help us, we do not know yet. There may also be changes to the schedule as well as changes to format.
We thank you for your support and we will keep you informed as best as we can.
