Annual Show…..Plea for help!!!!

Sunday 3rd June 2018 at the same venue as last year (Moyfield Riding School, Shinehill Lane, South Littleton, Evesham, Worcs. WR11 8TP)

This date is fast approaching (2 weeks Sunday. Yikes!!!) so as warning we will need EVERYONE to help at this event.

Please contact myself or Wendy to let us know your availability (Wendy 07530 651744, Mike 07956 429517)

Plan of action

  • Monday - move equipment into show field mark out rings and hammer in stakes. (we’ll be starting around 4pm)

  • Tuesday - move jumps from main container at the yard and continue to move trailers of other equipment

  • Wednesday – Start setting up arenas. Really could use all hands on the pumps for this!!!

  • Thursday – As above. Set up marquee

  • Friday – as above. There really is that much stuff to set up!!!!!

Hopefully with a following wind and everyone helps we should have everything finished by Friday so Saturday can just be a finishing touch day.

  • Sunday – show day!!! Please, please do come along and help. The more help the smoother the operation. You will be fed and watered on the day!!!! We are also trying to organise some sort of refreshments whilst we set up

See you there!!!

Area 5 Dressage

The club hosted our first Area 5 point’s dressage competition at Lybrook Farm, Broadway on the 15th. The weather was very kind, although things did start to get a bit warm in the scoring tent! The number of entries was just about right for us to cope with being our first show and the club did manage to make a small profit.  There were lots of positive comments from the competitors which is always a good sign of a good day. A huge thank you goes to all the helpers on the day. Without your help the event wouldn’t have been the success it was.

Team Show Jumping  

2 teams went to Solihull to take part in the qualifier. The teams included; Margaret Hughes, Wendy Skrypczuk, Julie Bloxsome, Sara Bloxsome Hannah Bell (x2), Katie Skrypczuk and Mike Turner. Sadly, no individual placings. One team (Margaret, Hannah, Sara & Wendy) finished 4th and the other team (Hannah, Katie, Julie &Mike) finished 10th overall which wasn’t too bad an effort.

18 Apr 2016


Team Show Jumping

A team show jumping competition took place at Moreton Morrell at the end of October. The club put forward 1 senior team and 2 junior individuals. The senior team included; Margaret Hughes, Mike Turner, Julie Bloxsome and Hannah Bell. The 2 junior individuals were Katie and Sara Bloxsome.

 No one managed a clear round, but the senior team finished 6th overall which wasn’t too bad an effort. Special mention goes to the Bloxsome family who not only hacked to and from the competition, but managed to go hunting too!!!

 

Club Events

 I’m still after ideas for future club events. There are no restrictions on ideas and it doesn’t have to be ‘horsey’ related. Just something everyone can get involved with. Please email (m.turner111@btinternet.com or txt me (07956 429517) with your ideas and I will get something organised for the future.
