Success Story





Last year, Melanie Winfield joined the Riding Club like many others.   Mel has taken part in every Training Day we have held, and also every competition, either at Area Qualifiers or at Blidworth Equestrian.   Mel has worked extremely hard to try and better herself and her horse.   Last week, her determination paid off when she gained a first place at Eland Lodge Hunter Trials out of 110 entries.   Mel also qualified for the SJ Qualifer in Trailblazers,   Her first place in the Hunter Trials won her a Horseware rug and £40 worth of vouchers.

Well done, Mel!
