BHS Gloucestershire TREC competition at Chedworth

3 Sept 2012

Horses and riders in Gloucestershire64 riders from as far afield as Yorkshire, Kent, Devon and Wales, including 4 current national champions, came to Woodlands Farm near Chedworth to compete in the two day BHS Gloucestershire Level 1, 2 and 3 TREC competition. 

On day one the POR (Orienteering) route took riders high into the Cotswolds Hills. Any rider familiar with the BHS’s ‘Cotswolds on Horseback” edition 3, which was launched in May 2011, will have recognised the Level 1 POR route as being based on the northern end of Ride 8, whilst the level 2 and 3 routes were based on its southern end and much of Ride 18.  The event completed on day two with the Control of Paces and PTV (obstacle) phases and there were a wide range of scores from the easier obstacle of Riding up an Incline to the very difficult Maypole which no one succeeded in cantering although there were some nice executions in trot.Horse executing bending poles in TREC competition

BHS Gloucestershire are very grateful to all the businesses who donated prizes particularly Buffera Limited.
