I am emailing to let you know of a new competition TREC South West are planning for this year.
In the last 6 months we have had numerous requests to put on Trec Taster Days for various riding clubs and some livery yards. We have done these in the last few years and everyone seems to have enjoyed them – but – very few riders have actually come back and had a go at a competition. So we got thinking….
This year to try and encourage more people to try TREC we are organising two team competitions. (one near Sidmouth May 18th and one near Ilminster July 28th – fingers crossed) The team competition is a level one event (the easiest). The team will consist of three or four riders with the best three scores to count. The main difference is that riders will be able to complete the POR (orienteering) phase together …so in theory only one map reader is required!
We have a series of taster days planned – including one at the Sidmouth competition venue on May 4th. We will be organising one in Somerset as well but …we need dry land first!
We would be most grateful if you could spread the word amongst your riding clubs.
