I have been a riding member and committee member of the club for many years, latterly serving as your Chairperson. During this time i have made some great “horsey” friends and enjoyed various club activities organised by our fabulous, hard-working committee of volunteers. I have five horses (and two Shetlands but they don’t count, right??) at home here at Braefield, ranging from an unbacked 3 year-old, an ex-racehorse, and 3 ISH geldings. Cracker (pictured) is my horse of a lifetime, who BE events, competes at BD dressage, and does a bit of Sidesaddle and Veteran showing just for fun.
Our riding club is for all ages and abilities. In my case, after not riding for thirty years, I went out and bought an ex racehorse! Maybe not the most sensible thing to do, we’ve had our ups and downs, but he is just the best. This year I celebrated my 60th Birthday at Riding Club Camp and had a blast. We look forward to lots of rallies each year with our talented coaches.

I have been riding since I was eight, bought my first horse aged 23 the day before I got married and now own five horses!
I enjoy competing BS and BE and previously had good success in the workers at Blair. This year I’m aiming for BE90 and upwards.
“I’ve been part of SRC for about 15 years and on the committee for a few years now. I love being a member of this friendly, helpful club where I’ve made so many friends over the years. I breed highland ponies at home so can sometimes be seen on a hairy one at rallies but generally compete and get lessons on Poppi”
“I’ve enjoyed being part of the riding club for 4 years , with my horse Jess.
Jess had only hunted before I bought her so the variety of rallies and coaches have helped, encouraged our progression. The Club has been a great way to meet new people and make new friends. On the committee, I help organise rallies and training.”
