              The team arrived home on Sunday evening after a very tiring but amazing weekend at Your

               Horse Live.  Lee and Andrew put on a fantastic display on Saturday and Sunday to a packed

               audience. Cheering and clapping followed each display and we were constantly busy on the

               trade stand on both days. Thanks to Dawn who came for a day out to see her horse, and

               ended up helping us out on the stand!  and of course the guys who stayed at home making sure

               everything was okay.  We handed out hundreds of leaflets on Oakridge, British Reining and WES

               so hopefully Western riding got some great PR. It was lovely to meet up with old friends and great

               to make so many new ones.

                                              Exciting News for 2012......

     The Oakridge Arena is to host an auction of western / natural horsemanship / Parelli trained riding

horses and youngstock open to all breeds in April 2012.  A professional auctioneer will run the event and

an equine veterinary practice will be available to carry out pre sale vettings.  The arena has superb facilities

which will be made available to all, to provide areas toshow / try horses entered in the sale.  A 60ft roundpen

will also be available to show youngstock to prospective purchasers.Overnight stabling and camping facilities

will also be available for those who wish to stay overnight.  This sale will be advertised nationally and on like

minded websites and forums. The auction will be on a commission basis with a commitment entry fee. 

A catalogue will be produced and video of horses entered for the sale can also be posted on The Oakridge Arena page

     This will be the first sale of it's kind in the UK, and a great opportunity for buyers to view lots of  horses started

and trainedusing these methods under one roof.  Breeders of youngstock will hopefully ensure the babies go to like

minded people to continue their career's.  We have chosen April to allow horses to have shed their winter woollies,

 2011 babies time to become independent and be handled, and before the start of the show season so that riders

wanting new horses have the whole year to go out and play.  It is also our intention to hold a second auction in

September 2012,making this a double yearly event at the start and finish of every season   Initial interest from

breeders and producers indicate that this will be a very well attended event.If you require any further info you can email

on lita@oakridgequarterhorses.co.uk.                      

 

              Our 2012 show diary is now in place and we have lots of super events for everyone.

                                                   The Oakridge Arena

            Our new indoor arena and training facility is now well underway and due for completion in 2011.. 

The largest indoor arena in the East Midlands, it boasts state of the art facilities for both horse and rider and of course

will have a surface suitable for reining. The arena will be available for hire for groups or shows and will have a full

programme of events running throughout the year. It is our hope that the facility will become a place where western

enthusiasts can meet to enjoy their horses, either at shows, clinics or training days, and relax after riding in the superb

restaurant and bar.   Our club members will also be able to use the facility on designated club days. 

                                        As the build progresses we will keep you updated

                                                  CONGRATULATIONS TOTEAM GB

  It is with great pride that Lee and Santa Cruz Whiz return to Oakridge yesterday with an FEI BRONZE MEDAL from the European Championships in Kreuth, Germany in the Team Event.

Seven Senior Teams plus Individual Riders from France, and Poland took part with 11 Nations in total competing. Germany retained the title and Gold on 665.5, Belgium finished in Silver position on a 661.5 and Team GB was awarded the Bronze on 646.5 with only 3 riders.

Our Senior Team was .. Doug Allen on Just Gotta Shine, Tammi Greaves on Jac Wonders Who and Lee on Santa. Francesca Sternberg also a team member, sadly did not ride as her horse and the spare team horse failed at the Vet Check.

Our super Junior Riders finished in 4th place against some very experienced competition. Luke Phillamore on Luv To Cut, Anthony Iren on Barely Whizable, Josh Collins on Frozen Slide and Jessica Sternberg on Sashimi. Again sadly we lost a rider in Emily Scott who's horse did not pass the Vet Check, but I am sure we will see Emily on future teams. Our thanks go to the Chef D'Equipe, Adam Heaton and his wife Dawn, Team Grooms, Niki and Lauren and all the amazing supporters both at Kreuth and here at homewithout whom there would be no medal.

      

Special thanks to Chris and Terri and the Crew at Oakridge.
