Rockley Rehab Reunion 2012
Date: 22nd and 23rd September
Venue: Milton Keynes Eventing Centre: www.mkec.co.uk
Cost and logistics: To be finalised, but will be around £35 per horse per day which includes stabling, use of the indoor school, show jumps and XC course.
We will probably ask them to include a marquee and catering too, which will be around £15 per person and there is a camping field with loos and showers which we are welcome to use (I know you SO loved camping last year!).
It ticks the box for being a more central location than Rockley(!), just off the M1, post code MK19 7HQ - and it sounds like a great venue so I hope it will be even better than last year's RRR.
We have 50 spaces. They will be available to rehab horses and their owners first, but if we have extra spaces then we will open it to anyone with a barefoot horse who wants to come along.
As soon as we have final details on the cost (probably next week) you will be able to book a place via Lea - who has nobly volunteered to look after the admin (THANK YOU LEA!) - on firstname.lastname@example.org. I will also put a post up here and resurrect the RRR Facebook page and post updates there too.
Although there will be lots of opportunities for jumping and schooling, the best part of the RRR last year was the chance for us all to get together and share experiences, highs and lows so if happy hacking is more your style you will be just as welcome - if its anything like last year there will be cake and wine for all :-)
For me it was also wonderful to catch up with all the horses who had lived at Rockley for a short time and whom I hadn't seen for months or even years (it was nice to see their owners too, of course!) so I hope lots of you can make it.
