  • Who, What, When, Where, How?

    Answers to some of your questions you may have about our teams.

    Our Coaches

    Dawn Harrison (BHSAI) is our dressage trainer and Karen Lawrence (UKCC Level 2) is our jumping coach. Teams will alternate between jumping practices and dressage practices every other week.

    20 Riders on 4 Teams

    Our teams are separated into an A, B, C, and D team, with each team having 5 riders. Each team will compete in 3-4 competitions, and then if they have qualified they may move on to Regional or National competitions.

    Every Monday Evening

    We practice every Monday evening, driving out in groups of 4 or 5. You must be able to commit to practice every Monday if you wish to join teams.

    Tannoch Riding Stables

    We are incredibly privileged to use the facilities at Tannoch Stables in Cumbernauld. The stables provides our teams with their fantastic selection of horses and ponies, as well as two indoor and two outdoor arenas.

    Facts and Figures

    Training is £25 per session, with approximately 10 sessions per semester, plus a £45 membership fee which covers your club membership and Sports union insurance costs for one year. Competitions are free.

    Horses from a Hat

    One of the most exciting parts of teams is that you get to ride and compete on lots of different types of horses and ponies. When we are competing, we pull the horses we will ride from a hat, and get a short time to ride them before starting our course or test.
