30 June – Open Fun Day! – Lots of fun events for riders, non riders & dogs! This popular annual event includes: novelty jumping, novelty showing, dog show & much more! The schedule is on the Events Diary page.
30 June – BRC Area 16 Show Jumping & Style Jumping Qualifier at Eagle Moor. Unfortunately we don’t have any Teams going to represent the Club but we do have a few Individuals. Good luck to all those representing the Club!
Yet again a glorious day for our last Show in May!
Lot’s of new faces and some popular Ridden & In Hand Classes.
The Working Hunter Classes however were not so popular, apart from the Novice Classes – maybe the heights for the qualifiers put people off?
Still the weather was great and people seemed to enjoy the Show.
Congratulations to those who qualified for the Equestrian Life & Equifest Championships.
Results will be on the Open Results Page soon - I’m having problems uploading the file.

Wow! A great weekend for Tickhill Riding Club!
The Club Show was blessed again with glorious weather, the turnout was great and yet more new members joined the Club.
There were some big jumping classes again and this time they all went ahead! The day was rounded off with the Ian Bryce Memorial Gymkhana Trophy competition which was keenly fought between the 12 years and under, with heats, finals and then joint winners overall who had to run off yet again to finally decide who would win the trophy! The results are now on the Club Results page and photographs will be available soon at www.davidclarryphotography.com
Then, there was the 6 Individuals who went to Epworth EC to represent the Club at the Area 16 Horse Trials Qualifiers. We had some great success: Lauren Hand - 7th Junior 90, Sarah Lee – 4th Senior 90, Andrew Lovell – 9th Senior 90, and big congratulations to Ellie Clarke who WON the Junior 100 and will go on to represent the Club at the National finals in August!
Well done also to Anna Griffin and Joanne Wilson who had some minor problems but both will learn from the experience and showed great promise for the future.
The Club is proud of all 6 and hope they enjoyed the experience.
The first Open Show of 2013 was blessed with glorious sunshine!! We had to cancel this show last year due to the field being too wet but this year not a rain drop in sight!
The show was well supported with a mixture of members and non members including some new faces who we hope to see again in the future. The pony show jumping seemed extremely popular with some large classes going on into the afternoon. The Ridden Showing and In Hand Showing also had good entries.
We would like to thank all the judges, stewards and helpers for making the Show a success.
The Results are now on the ‘Open Results’ page and photographs can be purchased from www.davidclarryphotography.com
We hope to see everyone later in the month at the Club Show and/or the Open Showing Show – May is a busy month for TRC!
A great turnout of old and new members for the first Club Show of 2013!
Unfortunately the wind became too strong to safely hold the Show Jumping and Working Hunter classes which was a real shame as these were some of the most popular classes but safety has to come first.
We have calculated how much we owe to members who had their classes cancelled and all those members affected should have received a text message confirming this. These amounts can be deducted from your entry fees at the next Club Show on 19 May or any Club Show later this year.
The Results for the Classes that did go ahead are now on the Results Page.
Well done to the Senior Team who represented the Club yesterday at Wittering in the Combined Training Qualifier, all four team members put in performances to be proud of.
The show jumping time seemed decisive with nearly all the 75cm competitors incurring time faults, this led to those in the 85cm speeding up but still there were only 6 riders on the day that incurred no jumping penalties!
Andrew Lovell – P14= 62.50% plus 75cm jumping = 0 jumping & 12 time faults = 57.50%, 11th place
Joanne Wilson – P14= 68.33% plus 75cm jumping = 4 jumping & 12 time faults = 61.70%, 8th place
Michaela Preston – N27= 66.07% plus 85cm jumping = 8 jumping & 0 time faults = 63.20%, 9th place
Sian Somerset-Hobson – N27= 72.50% plus 85cm jumping = 0 jumping & 0 time faults = 72.50%, 1st place
The team score of 18, meant the team came 4th - great result, and Sian also won the N27+85cm jumping section and has qualified for the National Final in June, well done Sian & Cavi!

We have had success in show jumping and dressage in the past, with members representing the Club at the National Finals for the last 3 years.

UNFORTUNATELY WE HAVE DECIDED TO CANCEL THE ONE DAY CHALLENGE ON 24 MARCH.
