Report from Low Farm Arena TREC

By Sarah Wynn - "I always look forward to the start of the arena trec season. It gives everyone a chance to polish up on their PTV skills. I have a 'fragile' horse who is rarely sound long enough to do a full trec, so arena trec is a great way for him to get out on a good day and have a bit of a party." Click here to read Sarah's full report of the day.

Milestone Awards

Have you claimed your yet? Central TREC Group have introduced a rewards scheme to recognise participation in TREC competitions.  All members will be able to request Milestones awards for themselves or their horse(s) based on the distance covered in the competitions that they complete.

The TREC GB National Championships have now changed venue to Poplar Park, Suffolk, IP12 3NA, and are to be held on the same weekend already planned, 29th, 30th and 31st July. This means they will no longer be run by Central TREC Group. The new venue has ideal in house facilities and stunning off road outriding. Further details will be available soon on the TREC GB website.
