Dressage training

We are starting regular Dressage training sessions over at Chapelthorne indoor school in Spreyton. Michael van Houben will be teaching. The sessions will be on Wednesday evenings starting this week (14/9) and will run weekly to start with. These training sessions are open to every member of our Pony Club. Each session will be 45 minutes and each will be a shared session with one other rider. Please book up using the website - many thanks. £18 per person per session.



Following the premiere of the Camp 2015 film at the Presentation Evening you will be keen to hear that you too can own a copy!

Members will shortly be able to download a copy through the website. Simply log on to your account as normal, and make a donation via PayPal for the Camp Film in the name of your child (or one of them!) The suggested donation is £5. You will then be sent (not immediately!) a link and bespoke password so you can download it to your own computer/device etc.

Please note this film is for personal use only and not to be shared online.

A huge thank you to Philippa for filming editing and selecting the music too – it captured the spirit and fun of camp so well.


Thinking about Bi, Tri or Tetrathlon? 

They are good fun and a great way to compete against yourself, and gradually improve your personal best.  

Have a look at Patrick Bugg's reports on the tetrathlon page for inspiration!
