What is this ?


Although Greenacres Stud are affiliated to the BSJA , we recognise the importance of Local Riding Clubs , both Nationally and Globally . Equally we recognise the work put into these clubs by the unpaid committee members and their event helpers and  judges , all without whom , these clubs would not exist .

That is why , to encourage participation at a local level , we annually sponsor the Novice Horse show jumping section of a Riding Club in our  area.

For  2006 and 2007  we are sponsoring  Ashby & Orton On The Hill  & District  Riding Club  ( Contact 01283 -  220045 for details of the clubs full activities . )

This year's  ( 2006 ) Novice Horse Championship  was won by Verity Baker ( Pictured left ) , who clinched the title by coming home a clear 5 seconds faster than her nearest rival Simon Joel.   Simon was 3rd in last years contest so will it be 3rd time lucky for him next year?  The other places went ( in order ) to Helen Kinsella , Heidi Elliott , Katie Frost and Emma Lebutt .

A total of 26 combinations started the competition with just 10 going through to the final jump off. The course was set to ask questions of both the horse and the rider. Related distances between some fences and a  'quirky' uphill oxer  on an angle gave competitors and horses something to think about , that's for sure!

Verity was riding her 14.3h gelding Laramie (affectionately known as Larry). Her and Larry have been together for 9 yrs. He was bought as a 3 year old at auction. Verity has been riding since she was 6 and has been competing at Ashby and Orton RC for a number of years.

Verity has just completed her degree course at Leicester University and her win in this championship has been a fitting end to the riding club season for her. We understand that her sister had a riding accident earlier in the year and  Verity not only had to continue with her final year's studies in business management , but also took responsibility for her sisters horse.

Although being seen out at the occasional hunt , her true passion is for show jumping. For her efforts Verity picked up the Champions Sash , Trophy , Rosette and a nice  £100 winners cheque !

Well Done Verity and Larry and well done to all the competitors who turned out and took part in the six , strongly contested qualifying rounds over the past season. We very much look forward to the start of the next one.
