They are fab! Considering the of horses kept in places such as meols, upton, arrowe park and in general everywhere but Wirral South, I am somewhat shocked at the lack of official BRC or other riding clubs.
The Angelsey show lost money almost every year, one year the loss was hundreds, due to the rules about judges. I couldn't agree more JanJ or Patww. Very few people were prepared to help out, even to do a help day, let alone the committee.
I have probably forgotten a few Only a few of these remain.
Well that is a shame Ozzy's mum. Lots and lots of very hard work. It is currently Wed May 19, pm.
Adult riding club
Post Posted: Fri Feb 01, pm. There used to be many Wirral clubs. We've tried to keep the show on the first Sunday of the month apart from September which is the second Sunday and the combined training event will be the last Saturday of each month. Many livery adult riding club forum do hold shows, but they tend to be just for their own clients. The only 'available' judge travelled from the far south west corner of the UK, and was allowed to charge per miles - then it was at least 3 times what it actually cost in fuel I used to go for advance entries, quite cheap in advance, and closing date only a week before, so people would cover themselves by entering a few horses in several classes, so if it rained we were not too far out of pocket, and hiring an indoor for a show helped.
Starting up an adult riding club - rules/regs?
Insurance costs have risen hugely along sadly with abuse! It's a shame, but I really don't know the answer.
I was on the committee of our breed society for more years than I care to remember, and slowly It was ME! I used to do the newsletter, organise social events and the shows. Hope there is more showing classes as there is only foxes local now.
For a yard to hold a show, they must be fully insured for adult riding club forum show which is expensive and often prohibitive. We had to start setting up on Wednesday for the Saturday, with most of the committee working full time the bulk of the work had to be done in the evenings. From what I hear, there has been no interest in people coming forward to replace it. The first show will be 7th April which will be the Greasby Show so show jumping and showing then the combined training will be on 27th April.
Our summer shows could be very profitable if the weather was kind, but get a run of rainy show days and they would also make a HUGE loss, as the expenses would still be same but entry fees dramatically reduced. We should all try and support any remaining clubs plus offer any help when we have the free time but most of all, we should appreciate and be polite to the volunteers who run the shows for us.
Can someone correct me if Im wrong. I have often thought I could put on a show on my fields, but it does have serious access issues, so hackers only as there is absolutely no way to get horseboxes parked. Unanswered topics Active topics. People want the shows, clubs etc but no one wants to help or do the work involved.
I can support everything on posts, Neston has managed for last 8 years with just 5 on the committee, there have been times when competitors have managed to reduce ladies to tears with the abuse, one chap even threatened one of judges to go and get their husband for a fight, and she is a mature lady!. Despite the Wirral being geographically a relatively small area with a disproportionately large horse population, there is probably an majority adult riding club forum horse and pony owners who still do not have mechanised transport to get to shows if there was to be one only "Wirral" club.
Might be another club going under. The impression I get is that many of you have had very bad experiences of running clubs in the past - I wonder if the of clubs in one area was partly to blame? With a few exceptions, no-one was prepared to help the small team of course builders to build and dismantle the fences at showjumping the exceptions tended to be the d at junior competitions, who were brilliant.
We used to hold one on Adult riding club forum, I was at the time staying in Scotland helping my daughter after surgery and got a panic phone call!
Islington cycling club
Further adult riding club forum from Katie. Glad to hear about the proposed Greasby Club but remember not everyone wants Show Jumping or Dressage many people like Working Hunter as well. We are doing this at the request of all those who attended our events last year. Time, being the most precious I was on the committee for a couple of these clubs and although I hate to say it It really was a thankless task! I know what you mean about it being a thankless role and a very draining and time consuming thing to be involved with.

As it was I was coming home for a few days There were living on Anglesey several people who 'could' have helped The following year i did the show at Northop within weeks of surgery myself You just burn out. In fact many members were happier to pay extra on their membership to avoid having to do ONE help day per year. That said I loved it being secretary at uni for two years then Captain for a year too - not quite the same as a normal riding club missing some bits out etc but then i did have to work with foreign speaking students and British University and College Sports, so still had a fair bit on my plate.
Ozzys Mum posted a list of old clubs and i just can't help but think some of them where far to close to adult riding club forum other and seem excessive?
Benefits of a riding club membership?
For a few years we ran big summer shows once a month from June-September on farmland in Mollington, which were incredibly popular and always very well attended, but getting sufficient manpower was a nightmare. Post Posted: Sat Feb 02, pm.
Whole of the weekend taken up 6 times a year! Post new topic This topic is locked, you cannot edit posts or make further replies. Show schedule to be published this weekend. Then of course when you consider all the abuse you could recieve, whether it was from riders unhappy with judging, or people arriving adult riding club forum late to enter their class, or those who felt it was their right to push in ahead of people who'd already declared in the showjumping, or idiots who think they own the arena when working in, and a million and one other complaints, maybe it's no wonder people don't want to volunteer It's also difficult to make this kind of event profitable or even to break evenonce hire of venue, insurance, paying judges and first aiders, hiring or buying equipment etc are taken into.
Glad to hear about Greasby riding club. Horse Network Equestrian Community.
Ideas for adult riding club rally
I could do cross country competitions around my land but the insurance risks would out weigh the benefits We now live in a world where everyone tries to claim compensation for anything I think Neston are struggling to keep that club going as the current committe are retiring. There will be two shows a month, one of which will be show jumping and showing the other combined training with separate dressage classes. Greasbys new project sounds promising but i guess it depends how far reaching and its ability to cater will stretch.
You simply cannot get people to sustain the interest. So between fitting in work, seeing to our own horses, and working on the show ground, we had no life and were completely exhausted by the time everything adult riding club forum been dismantled on the Sunday! Just to let you know that we are about to launch the Greasby Riding Club.
I can't wait to see the adult riding club forum, and hopefully there will be an in hand class for my youngster! Then I think, dozens of different horses droppings, land churned up, the risk of a scammer doing an insurance job, and ask myself, what would I get out of it Agree with the above, I was on a riding club committee for several years, and it's a thankless task.
I feel it is probably due to the enormous pressure put onto the people running the clubs. Then many of those that did agree to do a help day had to be chased to fulfil that commitment.
If you have ever ridden at Neston, or your children have come up from lead rein at Neston, as ours have, then in my mind its a no brainer to "put something back" But seems like I'm wrong. Thank goodness there are still a few out there who can keep rifing clubs going! Post Posted: Sun Feb 03, am. Post Posted: Thu Jan 31, pm. Well Katie, that is just fantastic to hear!
Royal Neston has existed for over 45 years and from our over facebook "members" 65 actual members: We managed to attract 2 people to turn up to enquire how to adult riding club forum the only non profit making club on the Wirral.
