2016 Events

What a fantastic and busy year it has been so far for our competitions and events at SFE.

We are still holding our hugely popular monthly clinics with Jo Graham, Matt Burnett and Tracey Newman, we have also welcomed another new talented trainer in Ryan Todd. And if that wasn’t enough the legendary Stephen Clarke has done two clinics for us this year and is due to complete his third clinic at the end of November for us. Check out dates and booking details on our calendar page.

Our Dressage Series has been a tremendous success this year, we have brought our competitors brilliant competition and fabulous incentive with help from our wonderful sponsors who donated prizes for all our class winners. So huge thanks to Hird and Partners Vets, Katie Amos Photography, Jude Furniss Massage, Minerva Beauty and Lisa Emmerson Equine Physiotherapy. Our Spring and Summer finales in June and October presented our winners and showed off their continued progression and success. It has been great to see so many new faces this year. I would also like to thank all our judges and writers who take time out to ensure our events are fun, friendly and very encouraging.

We will be running a Christmas Event of dressage and jumping along with some fun classes!

This year has also seen our Combined Training Competitions develop into a very busy event, these comps have been very popular and enjoyable for all levels. We will be running these as part of a series next year! So watch this space for further details.

I would like to take a moment to personally thank all our loyal and returning competitors, without you our events would not run and make SFE so enjoyable. Lets bring even more fun in 2017!

Welcome Millie Farrington!

In early September we welcomed Millie Farrington to our team of staff. Millie is 16 and is a school leaver who has joined us to gain  an apprenticeship in Horse Care and Management.

Millie is going to be an asset to SFE and bring another dimension to what we offer at Shaw Farm, Millie is a talented rider and a natural with the horses. Esther has trained Millie for the last 2 years so the transition to work colleague was an easy one.

Millie’s roll at SFE will be to shadow Esther and Lorraine and learn from experience and the knowledge of her peers. Millie will help in the training of Team SFE Dressage horses, she will also help keep the liveries in top shape and learn every aspect of the workings of a busy livery and training yard.

We wish Millie all the success with us and we are confident in her ability to carve a successful career in the equine world.
