Stonton schedule released

Central’s second summer TREC competition of the 2024 season will be held at West View Farm, Stonton Wyville (LE16 7UG) on 14th-15th September. We are offering levels 2 to 4 (including 2A) but are aiming to work riders’ brains more than horses’ legs, with levels 3 and 4 planned to have POR courses of approximately 20 to 25 km in length.

The schedule is available via the Calendar page, and that is also where the JotForm link for entries will go live on July 25th. Please ensure when entering that you complete a JotForm AND ALSO pay your entry fees via the Store (available from the same date).

We would also be delighted to hear from anyone who would be willing to judge, please email with your details if you are available.

Theddingworth results

We had a fabulous weekend at Theddingworth – the sun shone and the views were lovely (some riders found them a little distracting!) The results are now on the Results page.

7th June – annotated maps for the L2 POR are now on the Results page too.

We will shortly be putting together the schedule for our competition in September, so keep the date (14-15th September) free! It will be a Level 2, 2A, 3 and 4 competition and should have something for everyone. Offers of help will also be gratefully received, please email to add your name to the list.

Theddingworth Competitor Information and start times

The weather forecast looks good (please everyone cross their fingers and toes that it proves to be correct…), the Leicestershire countryside is gorgeous (bring your camera!) and the setting up is going well for the opening competition of the 2024 season at Theddingworth.

Competitor Information

Start times – POR (Saturday for both levels)

PTV (Sunday for both levels)

Wood Fired Pizza Shack menu for Friday night – please mention Central TREC Group or Theddingworth when you order. Sadly Jonnie can’t bring a van to join us on Sunday as he is off to Luton for Radio 1’s Big Weekend – it seems that Coldplay is a bigger draw than we are…!

The Competitors’ Information includes a link to the WhatsApp community set up for the event. Riders are welcome to join and judges/helpers are encouraged to do so from their own devices and then ask to join the Judges and Helpers group (only those listed on the Helpers list will be approved). The General group will be set that only Admins can post from Saturday morning at 8am and it will then be re-opened once the POR has been completed.

We are looking forward to seeing you all, bringing smiles and hopefully good weather. Mary and Helen
