Leinster TREC Calendar Update

Posted by TREC Ireland on February 14, 2018 at 5:20 AM Comments comments (0)

In March, we are starting with D TREC @ Loughway Stud on the 4th. This is a mixture of dressage movements and obstacles with rosettes and prizes sponsored by Feaha Moore of Loughway Stud. Entry form, Poster and Tests will be sent out shortly. Suitable for all levels.


On 11th March - an event taught by International TREC riders. It will consist of on foot off road and bearings training in Punchestown and surrounding area. This will be for people who have some level 2a/3 experience and also those looking to move up. Time will be allowed at the start to teach people how to follow the map using their compass, how to measure distances and also how to complete a bearings section.

 

All of the above, followed on the 24th March with POR training from Bambi Carroll, another International TREC rider.This is for those L2 riders who wish to advance to L3 and also for those L2 riders who wish to enhance their skills.

 

Details will be circulated before the events.
