Combined Training show - 23 September

Next show is an Open Combined Training competition (dressage and jumping) at Blue Ridge Equestrian Centre on Sunday 23 September 2018.

Fundraising Raffle

 

Both our dressage and jumping teams have qualified to go to the National Championships in Lincoln in September and to help them get there we're having a raffle. Tickets will be on sale soon and any contribution - big or small - would be appreciated, as the more prizes we have the more tickets we can sell. Past prizes have included lessons, arena hires, tack, feed, beauty vouchers, alcohol, and meal vouchers

 

If you are able to donate a prize, please get in touch with any of the Glenbrae committee members, or email enquiries@glenbraeridingclub.com

 

Let the fundraising for getting the teams to Lincoln 2018 begin!

Team Show-jumping Competition

Congratulations to all the competitors at our Team Show-jumping at Blue Ridge on Sunday 14 January. Hope you enjoyed yourselves - we loved the costumes and the enthusiasm.  Great to get the horses back into the swing of things after the festive fun.

Leave the horse at home

We had two social events early this year - our annual club meal for members and partners was on Friday Jan 26th at Beancross, while our quiz night was held at Stirling Cricket Club on Friday 23rd February. Everyone had a lot of fun and enjoyed a hot supper and some of Glenbrae's famous home baking - a big thank you to our baking stars and to all who came along.

 

AGM and Club Prize giving

Glenbrae's annual general meeting and prize giving celebration was held at Stirling Cricket Club at the end of October when we were delighted to declare Julie Scott (pictured here), with Betty, this year's overall Club Champion.

Caroline Guy is also stepping down, and Sharon Lewis and Mandy Fleming are stepping up. We'll be asking Sharon and Mandy for some information to share on our About page so keep an eye out for that.

 

Huge thanks to Jonathan and to Caroline for their hard work making Glenbrae Riding Club such a great place to be.

 

And while we're on the subject - our thanks to everyone who has made this year such a great one for the club. Here's to the year ahead.
