Great support from all the team members who encouraged Krystan Blackie and Joyce Greenhorn to give the bigger class a go and they performed very well! The 80cm team were 3rd and Emma Gall and Lady bagged an individual 5th place! Great weekend for the club!

 

National Championships

Because of their success in these competitions, our show jumping and dressage teams have qualified to go to the National Championships in Lincoln in September, and we are going to run a raffle as this was a great success the last time we qualified.

 

Any contribution big or small would be appreciated as the more prizes we have the more attraction buying a ticket becomes! Prizes have varied in the past and include lessons, arena hires, tack, feed, beauty vouchers, alcohol, meal vouchers etc.

 

Raffle tickets will on sale shortly and details about this and the proposed date of the draw  (which is likely to be in early Aug) will be posted soon!

 

Anyone with any prizes 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!

Winter Qualifiers 2017

 

The winter show jumping qualifiers were held at SNEC on Saturday 4th November 2017. Glenbrae was represented by two teams, one Novice and one Intermediate.

 

The novice team riders were Dawn Harkin, Emma Gall, Julie Scott and Eve Gray. They finished a very respectable fourth out of a total of fifteen teams.

 

The intermediate riders were Jane Brisbane, Morgan Nisbet and Astell Easdon. They also finished fourth from six teams. Jane and Astell both jumped double clears so moved on to the jump off. Jane jumped a very good round to win the individuals and qualify with Astell taking second place.

 

Well done to everyone who represented the club, especially Jane who can now look forward to a trip to Bury Farm in the spring for the finals.

Summer Qualifiers 2017

 

The Summer Qualifiers were held on 8th and 9th July at Morris Equestrian Centre.

 

Our jumping and dressage teams were competing and did so well, with places near the top of the table throughout and a whole clutch of individual rosettes too. Thank you to everyone who was on the team, on the team training and support crew, or volunteered their time and expertise to help Glenbrae and its members do so well.

 

We are always interested in people wishing to be in the teams so if you are a current Glenbrae member and interested in representing your club please contact:

Jumping and Style Jumping: email Astell Easdon

Dressage:  email Jonathan Bagg

 

Please say at what level you would like to compete, what you have you been doing with your horse and what your plans are for the future.

 

Please remember if our teams qualify the horses will have to travel a considerable distance to compete.
