I have been away for the last three weeks so coming back to a dark and rainy England has come as a bit of a shock! Gem is getting woolly and still thoroughly enjoying life in the Blackdown Hills.Read More
We have had lots happening this month, the committee have been extremely busy. Camp came and the nice weather stayed with us! A few drops of rain but nothing significant and it helped to dampen the arena dust!Read More
The 2019 BHRC Summer Camp was a great success, with our members having a lot of fun, and also learning a huge amount from the classes all weekend, culminating in a Dressage Competition on Sunday afternoon.Read More
I hope you have all been out enjoying the weather and avoiding the horse flies. I was at the clear round jumping on Friday evening and we were all comparing bites!
Kate and I took Gem and Sauber to the beach on Monday, it was fantastic!Read More
Hi all, well as the summer equinox approaches the thunder storms begin! Unfortunately our last clear round jumping evening fell victim, but hopefully we will dodge the showers with the many events we have coming up for you. We have further dates for clear round jumping; our very popular summer dressage league starts on Fri 21st June. Our infamous summer camp (now fully booked!) takes place atRead More
Hi All! Well, it’s that time of year when I rally the troops for the musical ride once more! For those of you new to us, this is not a competition, but a chance to get to meet others & have a bit of fun & it is open to all – juniors & seniors. This year’s theme will be ‘Minions’ (Despicable Me!) & we aim to put on a display at our Strictly Dressage Day on 29th Sept.Read More
Happy Easter! We have a champion in our midst! Committee member Sylvia Paine and Max have just been awarded the Newcomer, Reserve Champion, online, International Trec League; awarded by Trec Riders Club! Sylvia was at pains to point out to me at the last committee meeting that she is not an expert; until today, I had believed her!Read More
here is light at the end of the tunnel! The evenings are drawing out, the daffodils are in full bloom and every time I groom Gem I am woollier than she is; spring is on the way! The BHRC committee has been extremely busy; we already have a full year of events planned, training is well established at Conquest and our Spring Show is at the end of this month.Read More
ANIMALS! WHO WOULD HAVE THEM? – BY SARA LLEWELLYN

Hi All & a Happy New Year to you
Now since our antics at Westpoint & the AGM/Christmas party, the riding club has taken a little bit of a break over the festive period to allow all a well-earned rest & as such Trish was a little concerned there was nothing to go in this month’s newsletter!Read More
As I write, there are 11 days to the shortest day! Spring is nearly here! Gem and Sauber are extremely woolly but happy and healthy at the top of the Blackdown Hills. Kate and I took them both to Westpoint at the beginning of December.Read More
Well another year has passed by & both Trump & I are still here! I bet the odds of neither of us being shot by now weren’t that good!
I’ve not done any public speaking since the last AGM so I can’t promise this will be any better but I will try not to gallop flat out this time & may be even try to breath.
BHRC have had another fantastic year which came to a thrilling finale at Westpoint last week end. The club continues to go from strength to strength, membership is increasing each year and we have considerably more junior members.Read More
