50th Anniversary Events
This year is the 50th Anniversary of Meon Riding Club, and to celebrate this we are organising a few special events.
Gold Cup Polo
We are organising a day out/picnic to the Gold Cup Polo at Cowdray Park. This is an open invitation for anyone and everyone to come along and meet up with fellow Meonites and friends of Meon RC at Cowdray on 22nd of July and share a picnic with friends. You can buy tickets online directly from www.cowdraypolo.co.uk from 1st May for £18.50 each before 6 July (or £22.50 thereafter or on the gate on the day ). It is free for cars to enter and gates open from 10.30 – apparently people arrive from around this time to then grab an unreservable (but free!) space in the pitch side public picnic area. We will plan to be there to find a space!
The game starts at 3pm and finishes about 5pm, with presentations at 5.30pm.
The bar is apparently open until 9pm. We will post reminders again once tickets are on sale. Meon RC will be making a picnic contribution – so do please come and join us!
This will be held on Saturday 4th August at Fawley Farm, Privett, GU34 3NU, (just off the A32 between A32/A272). There will be lots of different classes including, In-hand and Ridden Showing classes, Show Jumping, Dressage, Gymkhana Games (for adults and children!) and a Dog Show, so hopefully plenty for everyone.
The schedule is still in preparation, in terms of the fact that sponsors will continue to be added, but the first version, detailing all the classes can be found here: Meon 50th Anniversary Show
We have booked a coach and bought tickets to watch the Freestyle Dressage on Tuesday 18 December 2018.
We have 35 tickets available with seats behind the judges at C, Block 11 if anyone wants to go on the website and look.
Coach pickups will be in Horndean village square, at the bus stop, and at Petersfield train station. We should arrive at Olympia at roughly 1.30/1.45, as the doors to the Shopping Village open at 2.00.
We will depart Olympia 10.30/10.45.
This is initially open to members only and bookings can be made through MRL:
This should be a popular trip, so get your tickets booked early.
