Forget the World Cup. The three trainers who run Chew Magna based Collective Equestrian are all vying for the top spot at the moment, having each enjoyed success on the professional rider circuit over the last few weeks.
Collective Equestrian is celebrating another coup this month, after Elizabeth (Liza) Allen was awarded her Stage 5 Performance Coach in Complete Horsemanship (formerly known as BHSI qualification) at the BHS International Convention at Hartpury.
March was an exciting month for the doggles as they had their first encounter with snow (twice!), we were lucky that the horses routine wasn’t too disrupted thanks to our facilities. Even the grass canter track came into its own for team sledging activities!
The first Quest Club BD competititon of the year for the Collective TeamQuest riders was held at Stretcholt Equestrian Centre in early February.
As 2018 started, it brought time for reflection on our New Year Resolutions! Read more Liza is aiming to clean her boots more regularly whilst Alex plans to keep enjoying what he is doing, especially with helping his clients!
It seems a while ago now, but the Collective team enjoyed a slightly quieter December. Liza held another busy pole work clinic at the beginning of the month, which saw all ages of riders and types of horses come in.
November was incredibly busy on the competition front. To start us off, Kathryn took Lexi to Allens Hill where they scored 66% in their para test! Liza also headed there on Saturday with Tom and they won their debut inter 2 on 64%!
