Wokingham and Bearwood Riding Club
Welcome! We are a large, active and friendly club with over 150 members. Our membership is wide and includes juniors and seniors, the competitive and less competitive, riding at all disciplines and levels. Our aim is to promote riding as a recreational sport and offer help and support to riders in the Wokingham area.
A variety of events and lots of fun!
AGM WITH ALEX BRAGG 4* EVENT RIDER
We had an amazing day and evening with 4* Event Rider Alex Bragg who came along to teach a full day clinic to 28 riders from the club at Berkshire College of Agriculture.
The lesson was aimed at straightness and balance with a variety of excercises designed to test everyone whilst being fun at the same time. Everyone who was lucky to secure a place on the day said they felt it was one of the best lessons they had had. Alex was very complimentary about the enthusiasm from all the partnerships during the day.
The evening part of the AGM was held at Birdhills Golf Centre where we enjoyed the prizegiving of awards from throughout 2018. 70+ guests then listened intently to Alex Bragg tell us how he began in his eventing career... from rugby player to farrier to 4* event rider. The message from Alex was clear, the support from the Riding Club to all its members is invaluable so grab it with both hands and who knows where you will end up??....... Badminton perhaps?
We also said goodbye and thankyou to our Chairperson of 14 years Suzy Turner. Suzy has handed over the reins of the club to Jo Ridgley after looking after the club for such a long time it was the right time to move on... to pony club no less!! Thank you to Suzy for all her efforts of the years. See you at camp?? x
