I hope that you are all managing to stay safe and well during these strange and difficult times.
Unfortunately we have had a directive from British Riding Clubs which means that we now have to stop using Redlands. The gates will have to be locked until further notice.
Hopefully if we all continue to follow the Government guidelines we will get through the crisis soon and be able to return to something like normality before to long.
Stay Safe, best wishes,
Unfortunately, we are going to have to cancel the Donald clinic at Redlands on Sunday due to the soft ground at either end of the jumping lane and parking area. If you have booked a place please get in contact with Ronnie on 01732 838191 for a refund. Fingers crossed it drys up soon 🤞
