National Forest competition and training event

It is with great regret that we have been forced to cancel the National Forest event on 17th-18th June due to a lack of entries.  We would like to thank those people who had entered or offered to come and help and apologise for this unusual occurrence.

Full refunds will be given to all those who had entered, any cheques sent in will be destroyed and those who had paid electronically will be contacted in order to set up the refund required. If you think you should be receiving a refund by PayPal or BACS and have not yet been contacted by the CTG Treasurer then please email helen.martin@trecgroup.co.uk.

We are hoping to use the planned routes in future so keep your eye on the Calendar page for upcoming events! We hope to see lots of people at our mounted PTV training at Alconbury on 2nd July and are also planning to offer a judges’ training course in the course of the summer.  Please email central@trecgroup.co.uk if you are interested in attending.

Mounted PTV training July 2nd

We are holding a mounted PTV training event, focusing on fixed obstacles, at Alconbury, Cambridgeshire on Sunday 2nd July. For full details and the booking form please go to our Calendar page. Places are limited and it is likely to be a popular event, so get your entry in quickly!

Park Farm results

We had a lovely day on Bank Holiday Monday with lots of smiley faces seen! The results are now available on the Results page, and well done to all our winners.

CTG Winter League results

The results are in, the points have been counted and verified, and this year’s winners are… listed in the 2016-17 Winter League results [please note that this is v2 of the results as there was a mistake in the original list]. Well done to the winners in all our categories and we look forward to seeing you at our presentation event.

We are going to present the prizes for this year’s league at our CTG Social at 7:30pm on Sunday 30th April at Park Farm, Stanford on Avon. It’s the night before our Park Farm TREC competition, which opens the 2017 summer season, and we will be holding the social at the venue.

A fish and chip supper is also available at a cost of £5/head.  If you would like to join in with the supper please email central@trecgroup.co.uk giving the number of meals requested and what meal choice you would like (the options are: fish & chips; sausage & chips with mushy peas; chicken & mushroom pie and chips; omelette (plain or mushroom) with chips & peas [V]). Please bring a chair and your own drink(s), plate and cutlery, unless you would rather eat your food out of the paper.  Payment in advance (by BACS or PayPal – details in the schedule itself) is much appreciated. If you would rather just come for the social event and presentation then you are very welcome, just bring your chair (and any drinks you would like!)

Results for Gracelands Arena TREC

The results for our last Arena TREC of the 2016-17 season are now available on the Results page. Well done to all the winners!

The results for the Central TREC Group 2016-17 Winter League will be available shortly – watch this space for news!

Park Farm Schedule – Now Available!

The hotly anticipated schedule for our Park Farm competition on Monday 1 May is now available. We are running a level 1 and 2A competition at this fantastic venue. We look forward to seeing you there!

Results for Low Farm and Brooksby Arena TRECs

Well the sun didn’t exactly shine on Brooksby today, but it didn’t rain as much as was forecast so we were all grateful for that! All our riders had a great time and went home smiling, which is the main aim of our events. Huge thanks go to all our helpers, without whom none of it would be possible.

The results for both Brooksby and our Low Farm competition 2 weeks ago are available on the Results page.

We have one more Arena TREC left of this winter season at Gracelands in 2 weeks’ time (19th March). Entries for Gracelands close on Wednesday 8th March so if you haven’t booked your slot yet please send your form in as soon as possible. We are also a little short of helpers for Gracelands so if you, or anyone you know, are available that day we would be extremely grateful for your time, even if you only have an hour or two to spare.  Volunteer vouchers are given to judges and we promise to keep you fed and watered too! Email central@trecgroup.co.uk if you can offer any help.

Milton Keynes Arena TREC Results

The results for our Milton Keynes Arena TREC are now available. The top score results will follow shortly. Thank you to all our competitors and helpers for another great competition!

Looking forward to 2017!

Happy New Year to all Central TREC Group’s members and friends!  We hope you have had a fabulous festive season and been able to enjoy some time with your ponies as well as your family and friends.
