“I have been on the committee of EDRC since it started and I’m now the entries/events secretary. I started sitting on ponies and riding when i was one and have continued to do so. Showing is what i love to do, from riding Arabs to riding side saddle to showing Welsh section A’s/natives in hand and ridden. When I’m not out showing, I’ll be out having fun hunting.”

Mainly hacking and pleasure rides but have recently been on my first competitive outings and loving the challenges that this brings. Hoping to get out and about and try a bit of everything”

Katie Kenchington – Social Media & Teams

“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 – Editor

”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”.
