Meet Dressage Team Manager - Rachael Newth
As some of you will know already I have taken over from Rebecca Starling as the Chef D’equipe for the Calderdale Saddle Club Dressage Team. I hope that I can do as good a job as Bex did.
For those of you that don’t know me, I am a dressage obsessive and it is all CSC’s fault. I bought my pony three years ago for hacking (having never had a horse before) and she turned out to be a napper (can’t wait to get to elementary so I can show the judge rein back because we have that totally nailed…). I ended up giving the hacking a miss for a while and found myself in an arena practising an intro B test for CSC’s winter dressage at Aireview Equestian.
So here I am, years later, working on lateral and longitudinal suppleness - words I never knew existed - and hoping that I can encourage others to give team dressage a go, move up a level or get people in our club to the BRC National Championships!
I have set out some info on the BRC events for you all in case you are new to the club or haven’t ridden in a team before (see above).
For those that are interested I will be arranging some test riding sessions before the events with Ashley Ward and Kath Pinington so watch out for those dates.
I have also had a lot of interest in the pairs dressage, I am planning some sessions to help you plan your tests and run through riding in your pairs for anyone that is interested. I will put these dates on Facebook and send an email. I was at the competition last year and the pairs class had a limited number of entries but they looked really good fun!!!
There will also be some other dressage training dates being released in the next week or so so keep an eye out for those.
Don’t forget our club winter dressage is underway and the next event is on Sunday February 19th at Aireview Equestrian Centre. The Schedule is on Horse Monkey and on our website. I’ll be there so come and say hi if we have not met before. We are also running sessions on the Mechanical Horse with Liana at Ravenroyd Equestrian.
I am looking forward to 2017!
