March Newsletter



March is Racing month at RCL with the highlight being our Cheltenham Gold Cup Champagne Picnic—always proving a popular event! Ahead of that, join us next Thursday (8th) for our Cheltenham Preview and Racing Evening and then later in the month there’s an opportunity to Ride the Gallops and learn how to fall safely with our Fall Training at The British Racing School…it’s shaping up to be a VERY busy month!


What we got up to in February…
Members enjoyed some fantastic Hunting-themed events in February including a day with The Puckeridge and a day with The Royal Artillery, and then an evening swapped jods for glad rags at The Hunt Ball! Our Club Drinks were replaced with a Pub Quiz where the ‘Really Clever Lad/Ladettes’ proved victorious with their win! Alongside this, the Monday evening Polo Team have been braving the cold for some indoor training and the Household Cavalry riders have been practising their Military drills!
