Don't worry if you have never entered anything before, we are happy to talk you though the classes, rules of the different events and everyone is very understanding.

MDRC JUNIOR SHOW JUMPERS WIN AT NATIONAL CHAMPS Congratulations to the MDRC quartet who won the Junior 80cm Winter Showjumping National Title
gainst 16 other teams and more than 90 riders from all over the Uk and Ireland. They managed to jump the only team double clear of the competition - the pressure was tense as our last rider to go knew she had to jump clear to win as other teams were biting at our heels. Rebecca managed to pull out some incredible turns to place 5th individually. We also had fantastic results for Evie Whittaker who was 6th in the 70cm Junior Showjumping and Samantha Housley who came 4th in Senior Dressage
Pictured right are the winning team of Jennie Burke riding Drumatee Lily (Bonndogg), Rebecca Potts riding Emirates Lad (Magic), Izzy Kendall Riding King Champ (Champion the wonder horse) and Tilly Melvin riding Cloonahinch Andy (Gus)
