Cannock Chase English Championships Results – 22-23 July 2023

We had a fabulous weekend (albeit a little soggy on Saturday) at our Cannock Chase competition which was also the English Championships. Jackie and Lynne did a fantastic job organising the competition and found a wonderful new venue. Thank you to them and to all the judges, volunteers and competitors; we couldn’t have done it without you!

The results are now available and pictures are available to buy from the brilliant Indie Pics here.

We received this lovely message from the venue owner, which we wanted to share with you:

“Thank you to Jackie, her team and competitors for being wonderful, low-maintenance guests as promised, for leaving the site spotless and for an interesting insight into trec and all it involves. They were a pleasure to host…you would be welcomed back.”

Shangton Grange competition results

45 riders and 15 helpers gathered in south Leicestershire this weekend for the summer TREC at Shangton Grange. The sun shone, the ponies behaved (mostly), the views were pretty and the food was universally hailed as delicious so it was a roaring success! We handed out the prizes at 5:30om on Sunday and the placings and phase details are now available on Results page, so head over there to see how you and your friends did!

Louise Jarvis won the prize draw for having read her Competitors’ Information closely enough to have spotted the code (or magic, according to our stalwart tack check judge, Izzy France) word. Be warned, CTG might do something similar in future but if we do the code word might not be at the end of the information, so make sure you read the document properly… Competitors’ Information is a vital piece of the communication process between organisers and riders, so we do hope that they are always read and digested (not just glanced through to see if the directions are at the start of the end…)

Once the last bits of clearing up are done (collecting in ticket punches and checking the toilets have been collected) our attention will turn in earnest to the next event in our summer season – the English Championships at Cannock Chase in July. Entries will open on 1st June so be ready to get yours in – places are sure to go fast! Full details are available on our Calendar page. We would be delighted to hear from anyone who would be able to help or judge for all or part of one or both days, please fill in a Helper Information Form to register your availability (also available on the Calendar page). If there is demand for a session of judges’ training we will look to run one, please email central@trecgroup.co.uk to register your interest.

Winter League 2022-23 – Provisional standings

Provisional standings are available here, but please be aware that final results may be different to these. Any queries should be sent to moulton@trecgroup.co.uk by no later than noon on Monday 15th May 2023 (as we need to get the prize glasses engraved).
