April Newsletter


Hooray…Spring is finally here! We’re looking forward to later evenings and lots more riding time—check out the website for details of after work evening hacks! We’ve got a really exciting exclusive evening with Quintessentially Equestrian to kick start April – it’s a VIP Art Exhibition with a guest list including an Olympic Gold Medallist! We also have a couple of new faces at headquarters so don’t miss out the chance to meet them at our April Club Drinks. Grand National month is finally here so for all our budding jockeys we will have an opportunity to Ride the Gallops and learn how to fall safely with our Fall Training at The British Racing School. Having enjoyed a couple days of sunshine we are are getting very excited about Spring with new events in the diary including The Bluebell Hack (pictured).


What we got up to in March…
March was ‘Racing month’ and we kicked it off with a fantastic ‘Club Drinks’ at The Running Horse in Mayfair. Joined by Assistant Trainer James Banks, NH Jockey Tom Garner and ‘Flat’ Jockey Charlie Bishop, Members and their guests were treated to a fantastic evening of racing insight and tips from the pro’s—lots of ‘Marmalade Mule’ cocktails were enjoyed and ‘lively’ (!) discussion ensued! Later that week, a number of members enjoyed a a Champagne Picnic and day out at The Cheltenham Gold Cup where our very own Rosie van Cutsem had a successful flutter on an tipped outsider at 33/1! We have continued to enjoy some amazing lessons at The Household Cavalry under the instruction of Karl Scholes who has also given a few lucky members tips on how to turn-out their horse to Military standard at our ‘Preparing to Ride Workshop’.
