On 10th April 2011 an intrepid band of hardy TRECcies gathered at Princethorpe in Warwickshire to do some unmounted POR training followed by an evening meal and a talk from our inaugural Chair, Anna Lea. Central TREC Group was born!
Since that day we have run over 30 summer competitions, including at least one event at Park Farm every year, and 35 arena competitions. We created the Club Challenge for the TREC GB Championships and run training and social events for our members on a range of topics and in venues ranging from pubs to village halls to tents in fields! The summer and winter leagues are hotly contested and we award Milestones to mark the achievements of our members and their horses.
We are hoping to celebrate this milestone for the club as the year progresses, so watch this space for details!
The Annual General Meeting for Central TREC Group is being held via Zoom on Thursday 4th November, starting at 7:30pm. Please email email@example.com if you would like to receive dial in details or a link to the recording.
The accounts for 2020-21 will be presented and Sarah Wynn, our Chair, will report on the year.
Elections for the 2021-22 committee will also take place, if you are interested in joining the committee (please rest assured that you don’t need to have any particular level of experience, we are always delighted to have input from all members, no matter the level they ride at – if they ride at all) please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We had a brilliant weekend hosting the 2021 English TREC Championships jointly with Keysoe & Three Shires TREC Club on 28 and 29 August at Park Farm. Thank you so much to everyone who competed, helped and organised. It was a fantastic event and great to be out competing once again and catching up with fellow TRECcies.
We’d also like to say a huge thank you to our sponsors for the English Championships who provided vouchers and items for the competitors’ goody bags. The sponsors were chosen specifically with TREC riders in mind and we hope you and your four-legged friends enjoy sampling the products and spending the vouchers:
It seems hard to believe that our next event now is our first Arena TREC of the Winter season at Moulton on 2 October. The schedule will be available shortly and please keep an eye on our Facebook page and this website for further updates.
Central are going back to Long Drove Dressage Centre for another of our popular Applied Dressage TREC training sessions on 1st August! Come and join us to improve your PTV and MA skills with the help of Tara Osborn and Sarah Wynn.
Our ace scorer Alice has been working like a trojan since the riders started crossing the finish lines at Park Farm and is delighted to have released provisional scores less than 4 hours after the last pair finished the POR! Please find provisional phase results below.
The CTG committee has been working away behind the scenes during lockdown, and we are pleased to announce that we now have an online shop! We are now able to offer membership, club clothing, equipment and entry to our events directly from this website. Payments will be processed via PayPal, though payments can be made by credit or debit card without setting up a PayPal account if you prefer not to.
Some of the products will appear to be free on the main store page, though we are afraid to say that once you select your options (which classes you wish to enter, for example, or which piece of clothing you would like to order) the price will change to reflect that.
We hope that this will be a convenient way for our members and other interested riders to enter our events, and it should also reduce the admin burden for our hard-working Entries Secretaries and Treasurer. We have also reviewed our financial systems and have decided to introduce an admin surcharge for cheque payments. Any payment made by cheque will be increased by £2.50, to reflect the additional time and effort required to prepare cheques for the bank and pay them in. If this causes a problem please contact us on email@example.com (or email the Treasurer directly via firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Central TREC Group exists to promote the rapidly growing sport of TREC and to run training and competitions for members and non-members alike.
Our activities are centred on the counties of Warwickshire, Northamptonshire and Leicestershire but we welcome any offers to run events of any type outside of these areas.
We’re a group of keen TREC enthusiasts and welcome all levels to join us. You can find out more about who we are here.
We have lots of events running throughout the year, ranging for all levels and covering all skills from POR training to tips on kit. If you’ve recently been to one of our events, pictures and results are available.
If you would like to offer any kind of help to the club in any way, shape or form, be it running a competition, helping at a competition or offering some form of financial assistance such as event sponsorship, then please do get in contact on email@example.com; we would love to hear from you!
