TREC is comprised of three sections Orienteering intended to test the skills of a horse and rider in planning and executing a long distance ride in unfamiliar country, the Control of Paces (MA) and an Obstacle Course (PTV)

The Control of Paces (MA) is a simple test of how slowly your horse can canter and how quickly it can walk, without breaking into trot from either pace. It is measured through a corridor of up to 150m in length, and between 2 and 2.20m in width.

Obstacle Course (PTV) or handy pony course with 16 obstacles placed over a field. There is a maximum time to do the course in and it is timed from start to finish. Going over the time will incur time penalties. Obstacles include; banks, ditches, low branches, small jump, steps, S-bend, gates, water, bridges, dips etc. Each obstacle is worth up to 10 points.

Instructor: Helen Wain

Helen is BHS APC, First Aid Trained, DBS Checked, RWYM Accredited Coach, TREC Judge and has competed for over 20 years. Helen loves TREC as a Sport, one reason being many Grass Roots Riders who would say they "just hack", find they enjoy the Sport and as a result want to improve, so they become more interested in developing ridden skills and handling skills and grow a better partnership with their horses.

So what to expect from the training session - a fun relaxed environment where we will look at the PTV section of TREC (the obstacles). We will work on different techniques all that will help in day to day riding and life, obedience, manners, control. This is open to everyone on any type of horse or pony no one is exclude - from the nervous to the confident I am happy to teach all abilities. I also take great pleasure in teaching lead rein/first ridden and in-hand.
