Thank you to everyone who organised such a fantastic day, we had a brilliant time and very excited to be on the Trec Lincolnshire League table!

Yes indeed, I echo Kaye's words. What a super day we had yesterday, thank you all. Look forward to seeing you at the next venue whether as participant or helper!

Yes thank you another great day, looking forward to afternoon tea and the christmas event.

My thanks too. Caroline, Sarah and their team of helpers gave us a great day of competition. I think one of the best things about trec is just how friendly it is and how newbies are welcomed with open arms as they grapple with the complexities of the scoring system. Long may it prosper! (Or is that the other Trek?)

Well said. Trec is 'the friendly sport' wish I had discovered it years ago!

I LOVE TREC, it's so much fun & everybody is so genuinely helpful to each other

I was over the moon with Rio today. Previously breaking into trot and scattering pimples our hard work has paid off and we actually got 11 points for canter! He was brilliant at everything else too, and deserved much more than fourth, but everyone else was brilliant too!

A massive thank you to you guys for a super day!

We came over for a watch today as we are hoping to join. What a lovely group of people and such a nice relaxed atmosphere really enjoyed watching all the fab horses and riders too x

Thank you for all the help and support today. We had a great day, our very first trip out together. Shame about the 4 hours to load at the end!! Thanks for all the help and encouragement. We finally got home in a very nice lorry- think she wants an upgrade in her travel arrangements

Fab day, had great fun 😊. Thank you!

Everybody was so kind helpful and lovely, so a very heartfelt thank you from me for putting on such a great event. 🎉

Brilliant weekend! Thank you Caroline and Sarah, and all your helpers for organising and running such a friendly event. Lynsey and I throughly enjoyed ourselves, don't know if the ponies did after going up that hill! - not use to that type of terrain on the Bedfordshire/Cambridgeshire borders! We will be back!!

Thank you to Caroline ,Sarah and all your team of volunteers who helped to make Willow Banks such an enjoyable event . The POR and PTV were really enjoyable , for me personally the POR was the best (only because Harry and myself love wandering around the pretty countryside)

Huge thanks to Caroline, Sarah and all the helpers who made this a wonderful fun and memorable weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed both days and even managed to ride the POR the correct way round! Lol

More thanks from Clare Foy and me for a lovely weekend and for making two Southeasties so welcome to your part of the world. Loved the POR yesterday, beautiful countryside, fantastic venue (loos and showers!), great food, friendly organisers and helpers, we'll just gloss over our naughty ponies on the PTV today! As it had taken us 6/7 hours to get there on Friday we didn't stay for the results. Has anyone got 2a pairs available, although not expecting great things after today. Oh, and we had a much better run home - only 4.5/5 hours today. x

Thanks to Caroline Forrester and her merry band of helpers for a memorable weekend of fun and friendship!!!

Thank you all for a great event this weekend. A lovely POR, fun PTV and great venue - how very spoiled we were with showers and fab catering! Many thanks to all helpers for making it possible, and especially to Caroline and Sarah for organising and running the competition 👏

I would like to endorse Jo's comments and thank Caroline and Sarah and their team and all the judges that made it a lovely weekend. Hope one can be run from there again!

Brilliant weekend at Willow Banks TREC organised by TREC Lincolnshire. Lovely venue, fun competition, great company.

Finished Saturday Level 2a POR in 1st place on 238 points and what a wonderful ride through beautiful countryside. We even neatly jumped a chunky log blocking our bridlepath (in cold blood!) as didn’t realise there was an alternative gap! Love my pony 😍

Greatly enjoyed socialising in the sunshine in the evening then moved indoors for some epic Karaoke. WHTG and TREC Lincolnshire members really know how to party together! (See video clip)

Wooda seemed very relaxed on Sunday morning but perked up of course as soon as I started riding him! Good MA score of 42 (30 for canter) then onto the PTV. The time limit of 9 minutes seemed very tight but I was determined to get as close to it as possible. Wooda was really good, despite a lack.of recent schooling and no TREC since last September and he tried really hard. Got his first ever 10 for Rein Back! Unfortunately I failed to remember the correct route and missed 3 led obstacles (I walked it twice...) so returned with a big fat 0 for PTV. Never mind, we had a lovely weekend and still managed to squeak into 4th place I think to qualify for the GB Championships at this level.

A million thanks to everyone involved in organising and judging this event, it is very much appreciated.

What a weekend - poor Koen (I'll not say poor Harvey) was tested to the limit at the Trec Lincolnshire weekend. People and horses came from all over the country and then there were Pam Fromm and me. Saturday was orienteering day - local knowledge was a big help so the compass wasn't needed (not that either of us know how to use one) and we were told to be aware that we would be going through a field full of cows! Harvey and Koen were up to speed in the first mile - going past the piggery no problem then came the carrot field!! The farmer had kindly turned off the irrigation. Only thing was we had to get the horses over the pipeline. Harvey watched Koen with morbid fascination as I tried to get him over the pipeline and I swear if Harvey had had a nail file he'd have filed his hooves watching Koen hyper ventilating. We finally got over the pipeline followed by Harvey who just stepped over it and walked passed Koen and then did an emergency stop because there was water in the ruts and he couldn't possibly go through it! He waited patiently for Koen to lead him through it who by this time was on the verge of a meltdown - he doesn't do water but overcame his fear and did it. If there was ever a time I wanted to shoot a horse (Harvey just to clarify) that was it!! We then had to go up a very steep hill - Koen set off trotting, I think in the hope Harvey would have a cardiac arrest. Harvey wasn't bothered he was the one with his fly sheet on. Every insect in Christendom descended on Koen - being black doesn't help and neither did the heat. When we finally got to the top the views were breathtaking - the next worry was "where was this field with the cows?". All I can say is that Pam and I are now experts in cow pats - old and new!!! Imagine our relief when we encountered no cows. Pam made up for the shortcomings of Harvey - literally speaking. As Harvey is somewhat shorter than Koen and so closer to the ground any difficult gates Pam dismounted and got us through and then was able to find somewhere to get back on. Pam obviously got bored getting on and off Harvey and found a novel way of dismounting. I've never seen anyone dismount sliding down the horse's neck. Unfortunately after this new approach to dismounting she couldn't find anywhere to remount and so we finished the course with Pam on foot followed by her faithless steed and, of course, St Koen and me.

 

Day 2 at Lincolnshire Trec weekend - surprisingly after our exploits on Saturday we were 3rd going into the obstacle course. Really pleased with Koen who was only really let down by me and my inexperience at some of the obstacles in that you have to remain in the same gait not do a mixture though we did have a hairy moment at the water. I thought Koen was actually going through it but as soon as he dipped his foot in the water he launched himself up the bank like an Exocet missile - all I could hear was the gasps from the judges! Harvey redeemed himself so is off the hit list. We dropped from 3rd to 5th but at least we got a rosette and survived.
