June Newsletter


It feels like the summer is finally here and what a scorcher it’s set to be! We have lots of evening riding coming up so you can take full advantage of the longer days – check out the website for details of our after-work evening hacks
This evening we have the quintessentially British Beating Retreat in Horse Guards Parade, and next week Royal Ascot Preview evening so you can get all your top tips for the week.

We are also really excited to announce a taster Polo Day coming up towards the end of the month in case you’ve been inspired to try your hand after Chesterton’s Polo in the Park this weekend. Finally, just at the start of July we will be having our ‘Club Drinks’ in Hyde Park (weather permitting) with Pimms and a Picnic!


What we got up to in May…
May kicked off with the wonderful Mitsubishi Badminton Horse Trials where the Brooke Horse & Donkey Charity hosted our members in their well-positioned Lakeside pavillion. Inspired by the pros, we had an Intro to X-Country and Showjumping at Checkendon, which was a great success.

Ahead of the upcoming Royal Ascot, we then had an amazing evening at Mark’s Club with stylist Sarah Byrne giving her top tips on how to look glamorous and leading an insightful discussion into all things fashion. We continued to enjoy some great lessons at Chessington and Hallingbury Hall and finally had another lovely Windsor Park Hack the day after the Royal Wedding!
