The Riding Club will provide Coffee, Tea (including Decaff versions) Milk (not dairy free options) from Tuesday evening. From Wednesday morning there will be a selection of soft drinks available.
Please bring your own glass (the more distinctive the better)
If you want alcoholic drinks then please bring your own. As fridge space is limited please only chill what you know you will be drinking that day.
Please bring your own Knife, Fork, Spoon, plate, bowl and cup. The more distinctive the better.
TUESDAY NIGHT – I have suggested a ‘Faith Supper’ . We all bring a contribution to a cold buffet which will be set up for everyone to enjoy from 7.30 allowing time for everyone to arrive and get settled in.
Just bring something you like and a couple of extra portions. We will carefully store anything left over so that people can help themselves to it for snacks for the rest of the week.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT – Harriet has convinced her lovely new hubby, who is a chef, to prepare a lasagne for anyone who wants it. We will also provide salad. Forest Farm are rumoured to be providing some pudding? We will aim to be serving food at 7pm as everyone will likely have had a busy day
THURSDAY NIGHT – Anyone who is staying Thursday night we will arrange either a taxi and a pub supper or a takeaway.
CHECKLIST FOR CAMPERS
For the HORSE
Spare reins / leathers are maybe useful but there will be enough people on camp who already have these on the wagon
- Horse boots
- Headcollar and lead rope
- Grooming kit
- Tack cleaning kit. This might be one of those times when you have time to enjoy cleaning your tack, or maybe that’s just me.
- Fly spray
- Horse first aid which hopefully won’t be needed
- Horse Water bucket(s)
- Feed and whatever your horse eats out of e.g. bucket/manger. Suggest you pre-prepare all the dry feeds into separate plastic bags (one feed per bag) to make them easy to serve up and they take up less space than trying to pack sacks!
- Hay which can be bought on site or brought with you
- Shavings which are provided but you might bring some of your own?
The following can be shared if you are travelling with friends as we don’t necessary need one each
- Mucking out fork
- Barrow or something else to carry muck to the muckheap which is the far end of the stable blocks
Oh and don’t forget the horse!
- Usual riding stuff hat, boots, jhods, shirts, gloves, spurs, whip(s)
- Back protectors are mandatory for the XC
- Air Vest if you use them
- Some cool clothes for relaxing in the evening including comfy/cool shoes e.g. not fashionably cool but not hot!
- Waterproofs in case the weather goes all British on us.
- Flip flops for the shower and dressing gown if you are feeling keen!
- Sleeping gear including sleeping bag and warm clothes in case it’s anything less than tropical.
- Knife, fork, spoon, plate, dish, cup, glass

- Drinks (again see above)
See you all there.
