EAST DORSET RIDING CLUB COMMITTEE
The Chairperson & Safeguarding Officer
I’ve been riding ever since my grandfather stuck me and my sister of the back of a welsh mountain pony at the age of 4!! I don’t think my riding has improved much in the intervening years, but I don’t fall off as much now days!
Archie and I have been together for 9 years I bought him when he had just turned 3 years old.
He is a funny character, he goes by the nick name of Kevin the Teenager!
He does everything I ever ask of him, SJ, XC, dressage … (yawn,yawn), hunting, Trec etc BUT he does it in his own way. We will never win prizes for style or panache but he does what it says on the tin! Love him to pieces!!
Secretary & Clinic Co-Ordinator
I have been a member of EDRC since it started and have been, until this year, manager of the Club teams.
I bought Pie as a 3yr old unhandled colt as my natural horsemanship project to sell on (ha ha). That was 9 yrs ago! He is the most gentle, sensitive horse I have ever met. Even though he is naturally very nervous we have had a go at everything from hunting to dressage. His and my great love is hacking over the forest and exploring the magnificent British countryside.
I have recently taken on the role of Treasurer, I have been riding since a child and have competed in everything from team chasing to dressage. My current horse, Bird, has represented EDRC successfully in several area qualifiers.
