The Committee

BMRC Chair

I spent my childhood riding, first with ponies then horses and competed in many events with the Pony Club and BSJA.   After a 30yr break, I took up riding again in my late forties and with the help and support given by the club, my confidence grew and I have enjoyed attending camps and competing again. I felt now was an ideal time for me to invest something back into the club and I look forward to meeting you all in the year ahead.

Lesson bookings (temporary) – is there anyone who can help?

I grew up riding show ponies until my late teens. Kept my eye in but didn’t ride much until the kids ponies were big enough to get on!  I ended up exercising, schooling & generally doing all the dirty work! The boys enjoyed many wonderful years in Pony Club and competing supported but a host of volunteer helpers! The boys (not kids any more!) stopped riding but I carried on hacking and having fun at Riding Club.  Joining the Committee is for me an opportunity to give back a little for all the years people put in huge amounts of time and effort running Pony Club and the hundreds of un-affiliated events we attended.  I’m often helping out at events run by Mendip Plains Equestrian so hope to see some BMRC members out there having a go!
