Please read the poster in this link which sets out the policy to be adopted for all rides (local and national - competitive and pleasure) during the current situation.

Please note that this policy is subject to change as the situation develops.

It also only sets out the minimum requirements and some rides may impose additional protocols to be followed.

Please make sure the vaccinations for your horse(s) is/are up to date and the records reflect this. Any copies lodged must be legible and all discrepancies will be investigated.

Failure to comply with the guidelines could lead to entries being rejected if matters can't be rectified satifactorily in time.

Jill Thorburn has kindly offered to host Cheshire Group members for a training ride on Sunday March 17th, in the Ceiriog valley.

The ride will start from Jillís house where there is plenty of parking for a number of trailers and horse boxes.

Riders will set out together to cover approximately 16-20km of varied and hilly terrain.

There will be several riders who know the area which will enable the group to split if necessary. The ride will consist of quiet country lanes, rough tracks and open fields.

It will go up on to higher grounds so you will need to dress appropriately depending on the weather.

It will be suitable for conditioned barefoot horses, but boots may be advisable if in doubt. Places will be limited to available parking so book early.

The venue is Pen-Y-Gelli, Pontfadog, Llangollen, LL20 7AU, any further information or to attend contact Jill via e-mail:

Handless Farm     Long Mynd

Once again Sally Mellor has generously offered Cheshire Goup members the chance to spend a weekend training on the Long Mynd, based at her farm.

The weekend date is 19-21st April 2019. As this is the Easter Weekend this offer could be extended to include Easter Monday.

Sally can provide shared accommodation in a 4 bedded annex or you can bring campbeds for a further 4 to sleep in the farmhouse. Corralling is available and also 3/4 stables if required. Sally can supply good quality hay or haylage. There may be more stabling available with her neighbour or there is an equestrian centre 3mls away.

Sally will provide a selection of routes for riders to chose from to go in pairs or groups on each day.
Guided rides can be offered if booked in advance.

There is a local pub for an evening meal.

Sally is asking for voluntary donations rather than a fixed charge.

The venue is Handless Farm, Asterton, SY7 8BH. To book please contact Sally via e mail
