The Gal­ston Eques­trian Club is Off to a Busy Start in 2016

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - Now Open -

We have a full cal­en­dar, with not just our reg­u­lar 2nd and 4th Sun­days booked with fun events, but we also have 4 Satur­days booked with events as well. The re­sponse to our mem­bers’ sur­vey was very good and the com­mit­tee have done their best to in­cor­po­rate as many of the sug­ges­tions re­ceived into the cal­en­dar as pos­si­ble.

Our Regis­tra­tion Day is on Satur­day 6th Fe­bru­ary, from 10.00am to 2.00pm, at our beau­ti­ful grounds. The Com­mit­tee will be there to an­swer any ques­tions and there will be a free car boot sale in the bot­tom area. Any ex­ist­ing or new GEC or Ar­ca­dia Pony Club mem­bers can bring their eques­trian gear to sell, so bring your car (not your horse) and park in the bot­tom area. A good chance to clean out your tack­room and make space for new gear! Great bar­gains are sure to be had!

Our first event for the year is a Mem­bers’ Train­ing Day on Sunday 14th Fe­bru­ary. We will be of­fer­ing flat­work lessons with 2 highly rec­om­mended and ex­pe­ri­enced lo­cal coaches - Kate Tay­lor-Wheat and Peter Turner. For the show jumpers, we have poles and grids classes with the very ex­pe­ri­enced lo­cal event­ing coach Amanda Benson. Mem­bers can do ei­ther a flat­work or poles and grids class, or both! Our in­for­ma­tive fly­ers will be out soon.

On 28th Fe­bru­ary we will be hav­ing our first dres­sage com­pe­ti­tion of the year - our Mem­bers Only (Re­stricted) Dres­sage Day. So join early if you don’t want to miss the cut-off date for en­try into the com­pe­ti­tion. En­tries will close on 16th Fe­bru­ary, so you must have taken out your mem­ber­ship by then.

On Sunday 13th March we are very ex­cited to an­nounce we have a FREE Demon­stra­tion with Neil Pye of Parelli Nat­u­ralHorse-Man- Ship at the GEC grounds. If your in­ter­est is build­ing a safe and trust­ing re­la­tion­ship with your horse, this op­por­tu­nity is not to be missed. This free demon­stra­tion is open to mem­bers and non-mem­bers alike. So if you know any­one in­ter­ested in horses, please bring them along. Look out for the flyer for more in­for­ma­tion about the day.

The 2016 Com­mit­tee looks for­ward to wel­com­ing new and re­turn­ing mem­bers for an ex­cit­ing and fun-filled new year!.
