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!

Great few months!

I have neglected the news page of recent months, purely due to SFE being so busy which is fantastic!

We completed another wonderful Dressage Series in October and crowned many more riders Champions, the series ran really smoothly and entries were very positive each month.

Combined Training Returned with a bang in  November, we had record entries for this event and every rider gave us positive feedback for the future, 2016 will see a return of this event.

Rolex and I have had a successful run of late in the dressage arena, and we are pleased to say we have comfortably qualified for the Elementary Regionals in February. Badger my lovely but cheeky 4 year old is also coming along nicely, he is having his first visit to Herefordshire shortly to meet Charlotte DuJardin. I hope she likes him as much as we do! I am sure we will be sent home with lots to work on.

Leighton has been very busy over the summer making our horses lots of beautiful haylage, he has also renewed all the electric fencing in the paddocks, they are all now newly fenced with either post and rail or permanent electric fencing, it looks fantastic!!!

My teaching seems to have taken off somewhat this year, which is great, I am really enjoying seeing my clients develop week in week out. I am excited to announce my teaching is now open to all, not just my liveries.

Our clinics with Jess Dunn, Jo Graham and Tracey Newman have been as popular as ever and we will continue to work alongside these fantastic trainers next year.

We have done a couple of charity fund raisers this Autumn too, we had an amazing Hoedown in September which raised over £3000.00 for CRUK, and then we hosted a Table Top Sale this week which raised £440.00. We will be continuing out support to CRUK next year with other events so keep an eye on our events page or facebook.

SFE Christmas Party is only two weeks away which is so exciting! However I cannot quite believe where this year has gone, its been a busy one for sure.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my clients, old and new for their continued support and here’s to another fantastic year to come at SFE in 2016.

Have a great Christmas and New Year guys, Esther xx
