More Success for the Area Show Jumping Team at BRC National Chamionships


The 70cm team made up of Ellie Naylor, Georgia Clarke, Louise Hufton and Anna Tilsley travelled down to the SEIB Novice Winter Championships at Arena UK, Lincolnshire after qualifying at Northcote Stud.


The weather was the total opposite to round 1 where it was torrential rain, it was glorious sunshine. Perfect weather not often seen in March.


With the team finishing on 8 faults they were delighted to recieve 5th place. 


Georgia and Giggsy were one combiation of very few double clears taking home an individual 3rd place.


Huge shout out to Joanne Gaffney who was our volunteer support for the competition, without our and other club's volunteers these events would never be able to run. If you are unsure what goes on at are competitions coming and being a volunteer is a great way to see first hand everything that goes on.


Changes to BRC Flu Vaccination Requirements


We know that flu vaccinations have been a contentious issue for some time and as part of the BHS, welfare of the horse is obviously paramount, however in the current climate the risk of a flu outbreak is at this time minimal.


BRC are therefore comfortable to remove the requirement of a vaccination within 6 months and 21 days of a qualifier or championship. This will be with immediate effect, however we will continue to strongly recommend a 6 month vaccination when attending BRC qualifiers and championships along with maintaining good biosecurity protocols.


In order to compete in a BRC qualifier and/or championships the annual vaccinations (12 month) and initial course must be correct as per G7 of the Handbook.


BRC reserve the right to amend these vaccination rules should another outbreak occur.


If you are using a venue that requires a 6 month vaccination then you would need to adhere to their rules.

Success for the team at Area Qualifiers

Ellie, Louise, Georgia and Anna with their horses Alice, Sox, Giggsy and Kalaidoscope headed down to Northcote Stud near Preston on 5th February. 

The weather wasn't kind so they were all very thankful for the new venue with an indoor warm up and main ring.


Despite the early get up all the horses and riders performed well to come home with team 1st place in the 70cm finishing on an overall score of 0. Georgia & Giggsy also places 1st overall in the class. This means the team is off to Arena UK at the end of March to compete in the Winter SJ championships.


Well done to Ellie and Anna who both got double clears in the 80cm to place 7th and 8th.


A huge shoutout to our volunteers Chris, Charlotte and Hazel who were on car park duty in the wet and cold for 3 hours. Without them helping us we would not have been able to enter our team.

CRC 70cm Show Jumping team take 2nd at National Championships!!

On Saturday 4th September, Cumbria Riding Club's 70cm Show Jumping team made up of Anna Tilsley & Kaleidoscope, Victoria Graham & Miss Dotty, Georgia Clarke & Giggsy You're a Star and Louise Hufton & Sox travelled to Lincolnshire showground to compete at the BRC NAF 5* National Championships. The team originally qualified at the Area 3 competiton at Bold Heath Equestrain Centre in July and eagerly awaited their day at the championships. Only team teams on the whole competition finished on a score of 0 faults and it came down to a matter of seconds to separate the two with Cumbria placing an amazing second!

Return of the Fun Jump proves to be a great success!

In August 2021 we revived an old favourite - the CRC Fun Jump! Classes included Fancy Dress and Handy Pony along with a wide range of jumping classes such as Rider & Groom and Horse & Hound! A lot of fun was had by everyone involved and it was great to be back running this event again. Keep your eyes peeled for even more fun jumps running in the 2022 season!
