Katie Kenchington – Committee Member

I’ve been around horses for around 7 years however, I’ve only started consistently riding in the last 18 months. I have a retired heavyweight cob called Jake, my miniature Shetlands, Mabel & Boris, and I currently share a 13.2hh cob, also called Jake. I only do showing and flatwork bits at the moment. Hopefully I’ll be on the EDRC dressage team in the coming years.

Lynn Kenchington – Committee Member

Lynn Kenchington” I started riding when I was about 5 years old, however when I was 18 I took a break of 20 years away from horses. I bought my first horse when I was 38 but I haven’t ridden for over two years due to my nerve taking a one way trip. I enjoy watching and supporting others and just being around “horses”.

Sophie Blunt – Committee MemberSophie Blunt“I have been riding since I was about 11years old and have always had a passion for horses.

Hayley Williams – Committee Member

” I started riding when I was 10 and own my lovely boy Harry. We compete in dressage, SJ and XC and love one day events. We’ve been part of the EDRC teams since the club started which I thoroughly enjoy. ”

Katrina West – Committee Member

“I’ve been riding since I was in early teens, took a break whilst bringing up 4 children! Crazy eh? I’m now the lucky owner of 2 gorgeous geldings , owned Jasper for 11 years and after a successful competitive time with us (competed by Daughter Hayley) has now retired at 22 ish and enjoying the quieter life. Not wanting to be without a horse to ride I decided to buy a youngster and haven’t look back. Dodger my gypsy/cob x. Bought unbroken as a 4yr old last July is coming on fabulously. My aim to be a better rider (loads of lessons) and compete at very low level. Being a maturer rider and never competed an achievement it would be.”
