We like to hold events throughout the year for our members to participate. Please note we do need volunteers for these events to run, please contact the organiser if you are able to help.
Sunday 25 August
Murray House, Cumwhinton
The next Members Dressage includes the tests for the Area Dressage Qualifier. For those of you attending this is a perfect opportunity to practice the test, gain feedback to add to your homework in preparation for the following week. The tests are suitable for those riding at Intro through to Novice, allowing you to practice and move up the levels in a friendly environment. Placing will go towards our EVRC points series, accumulated throughout the year before prizes are presented at the AGM.
As with all events we need volunteers, if you are able to help, or have any questions please contact Jodie on 07530 157704. Entries can be made through EQUO or by post and must be sent in by the 18 August. See schedule below for details.
The Ellen Valley Riding Club holds a monthly dressage series commencing in March and finishing in September for our members. We hold classes for Introductory, *Restricted Prelim, Preliminary, Novice and Elementary. In the Introductory,once a competitor has come first, second or third on three occasions they can no longer enter that class. We respectively ask that competitors enter classes at their level to be fair to all members taking part, however you can enter HC in all classes if you wish.
Each month you and your horse will gain points depending on your placing before an overall winner is announced at our prize giving. Please see below how we calculate the points.
*Restricted Prelim is for members moving into Prelim from Intro and is marked against riders at a similar level. Once again on achieving first, second or third on three occasions you will be expected to move to the open Prelim class.
Please see the schedule attached for more information. You can enter by using the entry on the schedule or through Equo, https://www.equoevents.co.uk/
Enter as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
