Previous Events

Well done to Helen and Kirsty for arranging this show. We had lots of competitors and lovely horses and ponies entering the competition. It was well run and a lovely calm show. Many riders commented on how lovely it was. Thanks to the helpers and to Helen Barret, our lovely judge. Looking forward to the next one.
Thank you to all those who made this year's annual show a success. We couldn't have run it without the folk who gave up their time to set up rings, build jumps, print forms, count rosettes, judge, steward, first aid, horse hold, advise, mop brows and cheer along. It was a huge team effort and we are already planning for next year! Check out the photos in the gallery.
This clinic is so hot it sizzles! Places fill up within minutes and Peter was a fabulous coach. Members are going from strength to strength under Peter's watchful eye. His calm friendly manner is most encouraging and our members are reaping the benefits of his experience! Next clinic is on August 15th. Contact Helen Johnson for details.
Prices are:
£40 for 45 minute private lesson
£25 each for 1 hour semi private
£18 each for 1 hour with 3 people in the group
The clinics are held at Greystones Farm, HD7 5UZ in an excellent outdoor arena. If you are bringing a horse box / trailer there is enough room for parking too! Please message PMRC direct to book on. The spaces are limited and issued on a first come first served basis. If you wish to cancel your lesson we will need 24 hours notice to try to fill your space. Next one is 15th August. Book early to avoid disappointment.
What an event this was! Our members achieved their personal goals and had extra injections of confidence. Some chose to jump the beautiful new arena cross jumps at Louisa Gaunt's yard whilst others desensitised their horses and schooled around the jumps. No pressure on anyone or any equine and all left with huge smiles- even the horses! We are running another of these events on 22nd August at Louisa's place again. Perfect opportunity to get in some extra practice before the Annual Show on 27th. Contact Helen Johnson to book a place but hurry, it fills up very quickly.
A number of happy hackers ventured out for a long, lazy day with pub stops and an abundance of off road tracks. We explored from Slaithwaite to The Cop and onto Meltham moor via Helme. The weather was exceptionally good; just enough of a breeze to keep the horses cool but warm enough to loiter at the pub (twice!) Only the ride leader had been on the tracks and bridle paths before, so it was lovely to introduce members to new routes. Every horse and rider received a beautiful tartan rosette and the miles accrued go towards our distance achieved award at the awards night in December. Still time to catch us on the next ride out, or if you have a favourite route that you would like to share please contact Rachel or Diane. We'd love to hear from you and organise a club ride from your suggestions.
We had a brilliant evening at the 3rd points jumping show. Well attended and with dry weather we cheered as the horses and ponies flew round the course. None of it would have been possible without our amazing helpers setting up the jumps for us; Thanks guys. We saw a few new faces and it was great to meet Simon and Ellie. Hope you come to the next one on 3rd August, same venue. We are looking forward to seeing you all.
2016 ended in brilliant style with our Christmas Extravaganza Show. This was a new venture for us and was the brainwave of Hannah Pedley who organised the show - thank you Hannah. We had some excellent feedback and both competitors and helpers enjoyed the day. Santa not only made the day for some of the younger competitors but he said it was one of his best gigs. Would you believe that the Bambi Memorial trophy was won by a pony called Bambie!
The tombola was a success which we'll have to repeat (if Lisa Emerson is there!). Our judges were fantastic and gave some great feedback. They commended the competitors on excellent turnout, regardless of hairiness.
We're hoping to repeat the show next Christmas but bring it forward slightly to avoid clashing with other Christmas festivities - it will be Sunday 3rd December 2017 so get this date in your diary now!
