The club held several day rallies during the summer of 2018 to support nervous and novice horses and riders. The rallies were branded ‘grassroots rallies’.
These events were held at Mostyn Farm Ride and consisted of three, one-hour sessions over the course of a day. Groups of six riders stayed together with their group and their instructor for all sessions. The morning sessions were flatwork and poles/mini jumping and then the afternoon session took place on the cross-country course.
Whilst all riders were apprehensive about the cross-country session, all achieved great things, from getting their water adverse horse through water, to jumping logs, stepping over ditches, stepping down from steps and even jumping a house.
Due to the success and popularity of these rallies, the club has provisionally booked the facilities at Clwyd Special Riding Centre for a residential grassroots weekend in March 2019.
