Well what a year we have had, it has been a fun, positive and wonderful time for all our riders and horses, with them all exceeding their expectations and the standard of riding has just got better and better with everyone improving on their scores through the year. It has been wonderful to see all the partnerships getting stronger and developing.
The adult camps have been really well attended and everyone has had a brilliant time and found the two days a really good learning experience, through the year we have had pilates, showjumping and coaching sessions both on and off the horse in all areas or riding. Lunging demos, small group lessons and video feedback-
We are really loooking forward to developing these in 2017 and look forward to anyone joining us who want to spend time with their horse and improve in all areas of your equestrainism

This was a message received from a new member of the Riding Club in December 2015
"I had to dash off after the British Riding Club dressage so didn't get a chance to say in person a BIG thank you to the staff. It is *wonderful* to have the opportunity to dipinto a bit of competition without a horse of my own. Most of all its lovely to have a goal to work towards, get test feedback in such a supportive relaxed atmosphere Thoroughly enjoyed myself today still smiling now "
