​With all this glorious sunshine, what better way spend your time than outside and in the saddle? Sign up now for our ever popular Windsor Park Pub Hack this weekend, or upcoming Chessington SJ Lesson or Hallingbury Hall dressage lesson (only a few spaces left for each.) If it’s too hot for riding, what about a day out at Woburn Stud, viewing the mares and foals and enjoying a quintessentially British experience?

If you’re wondering what to wear for Ascot next month, and all those other occasions when you need to look glam, there are still a few spaces left for our styling event this evening with Sarah Byrne at Mark’s Club. At the end of the month we have our next Club Drinks, and then just around the corner, at the beginning of June we have Beating Retreat at Horse Guards Parade, Polo in the Park and Ascot Preview Evening, so lot’s to look forward to.


What we got up to in April…
April was ‘Grand National’ month so we took to the tracks! We had a wonderful afternoon down at Coombelands Equestrian Centre riding the Gallops. The very next day we had some all important Fall Training at The British Racing School, where we were given a tour of their impressive facilities, met the racehorses and heard about the professional Jockey Training Programmes (any takers?!). We also went on several hacks in the Bluebell Woods in Malborough, where we were mostly(!) very lucky with the weather, and once again we went for a lovely morning ride in Windsor Great Park with a hearty pub lunch to round it off. Earlier in the month we attended a very jolly private viewing evening with artist Lottie Cole at Cricket Fine Art, and our Club Drinks at The Running Horse was a great success, as members got to meet the new team finally!
