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
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

Christmas Special - Training and Games Themed Competition
Thank you all so much for an absolutely fabulous day!!! Merry Christmas and a happy
new year to you all xxx
Huge thanks to Caroline, Sarah and all the helpers yesterday. It was tremendous fun
and all ran extremely smoothly. A lot of hard work goes into organising and running
these events and it's very much appreciated.
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
Thanks all involved in organising and running yesterday's Trec event. As usual we
really enjoyed the day and the competition at the end was tremendous fun.
Thank you once again Jane, Caroline and helpers for a great training session then
a fun competition. Just a shame we couldn't put our training into practice at the
right time! It was a great day. This is such a friendly club, I am pleased and very
proud to be a member
Fab day, had great fun 😊. Thank you!
Yes, Thank you to organisers. Our first attempt at Trec, really enjoyable and hoping
to come again.

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
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
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
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.
