Horse and Country are coming to film at the Gate RC-JUNE 21ST

We got a last minute email from Horse and Country TV letting us know they were coming down to our showground on Sunday 21st’sShowing Show.

The Gate is affiliated to British Riding Club and as a member you automatically become a member of the BRC.

The crew will be on site as part of a grassroots documentary for the British Equestrian Federation about riders trying to qualify for the ESUK Qualifiers held at Arena UK in July.

They will be following a rider names Tereska Walker in her attempt to qualify at the Gate.

The Gate win grant

The Gate commitee work tirelessly for the future of the Gate Riding Club and grassroot riders.

We recently applied for a grant to help the club, which required a tirade of questions to be answered as most grant applications do.

Julie Warner,Club Secretary, headed up the application for the Gate and was pleased to announce that we have been accepted although we still have some hoops to jump through!

We have been awarded money to help improve the club,which we are going to use towards getting power to all units on site.

This will hopefully mean heat and lighting in the new portacabin, electricity to the Cafe and maybe lighting in the toilets.  (well this is the plan)

This means we will now be able to use the facilities in the winter for theory sessions and group get togethers.


Fingers crossed the next stages go smoothly.

Help Needed Urgently!

We have had the following URGENT request from Warwickshire College regarding the Area 5 points ODE on 10th May. As you all know Warwickshire College have put on several of the area 5 competitions this year with great success and feel it is only fair that we all muck in when help is needed especially those clubs that do not run any Area 5 competitions of their own.

Any assistance will be greatly received and naturally as with anything if we can not drum up enough help then we will struggle to run the Event.
Cross Country Start – Looking for 4 to 5 people.
Cross Country Control – Looking for 1 person.
Scoring – Looking for 1 person.
Secretary – Looking for 1 person to help with Secretary.
We will be in need of some fence judges too, I have a lady trying to sort out our students to do it, but know some students will be going home for the weekend etc so will definitely have some gaps to fill.
All enquiries can come back to me please on or 07900 911343. Email will be easier for me at the moment as shop opening imminently!!!
