There were 38 Riders in the Prelim test so Hannah did extremely well - well done! Cath was a late replacement to the team and scored 60.5%. Well done!
Lucy and Abbie rode the Novice 30 tests. Lucy scored 63.8% and was placed 14th individually. Fab result! Abbie agreed to ride a second horse in this team as a replacement. Abbie scored 58.8%. Well done! The weather was absolutely appalling and all the girls warmed up in very wet windy conditions. They all gave great performances and made Mynydd Riding Club proud! They weren't placed in the top 6 but with so many teams in competition, should be proud of their results.

Thank you to Riders 2000 - Claire Rooney especially for coping with all the changes. Unfortunately Horses are unpredictable and we can never guarantee they will be ready to play when we are. Well done to all Riders!CAMP UPDATE - click here

Some Brilliant news! We have been successful in our application for a grant from Sport Wales, so we now have 80% to put towards a full set of jumps, with fillers and a trailer to store and trasport them. We need to work hard to raise the remaining 20%, just over £2K. We also need to enter more members in area qualifier competitions, run another two shows, and run more weekly lessons as outcomes from the grant.
As of January the 7th we will be running extra weekly sessions on a Monday evening, on a rota basis at Pencoed, Stocklands, Alps and Sunnybank, keep an eye on the web for details!
We are looking into running Physiotherapy sessions for riders, to improve our posture, core strangth and riding position. Keep an eye on the web for more details!

Some Polite Reminders...
Please collect all droppings from the car park, otherwise club gets fined! We have a poop scoop for you to use.
Please help to put jumps out and away on club nights, arrive early for clinics, as they say more hands make light work! If we don't have help this will eat into your lesson/clinic time that you are paying for!
When parking lorries and horseboxes in the car park in Pencoed beside the large school please park diagonally facing away from the large school and not lengthways. You can also park lorries in the area at the end of the school. No cars to be parked in both these areas on evenings and weekends as they must be reserved for horseboxes and lorries only. Do not park along the length of the school.
Please be sure to collect all droppings from the car park, otherwise club gets fined! We have a poop scoop for you to use.
Book your pace at the lessons by calling Estelle on 0753 0680 346 by text or phone(eves).
No trotting in the car park.
