Welcome to our new East Anglia TREC Group website.
As a Group we cover all the Eastern Region: Cambridge, Hertfordshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk and aim to put on various TREC Events including Summer and Winter Competitions, TREC Training and other related events. We have a calendar of dates where you can see what is going on though out the year. Go to the Events page to see the calendar where you can get more information and schedules. You can see individual dates on the Calendar or get a list if you click on ‘Agenda’.
The Membership section has information about how to join and general membership information such as parental consent forms etc.
We plan to have reports and results from each of our events as a soon as possible after the event – if any of you wish to write an article about your experiences on one of our events please send it to our Secretary, Jan Arthur, firstname.lastname@example.org
We are also hoping to have newsletters in the Spring and Autumn so if you have any TRECCy stories, they would make an interesting start for the next Newsletter.
TREC is for those who enjoy hacking, but want a bit more purposeful engagement with their horse in an informal atmosphere. TREC encourages a positive interaction between horse and rider.
There are three phases to the full competition: MA, Control of Paces – slow canter followed by a fast walk; PTV, Obstacles – up to 16 to negotiate, based on things you might come across whilst out hacking and the POR, Orienteering – following a map whilst on horseback. There are a number of different types of competition too.

Practice sessions are on the calendar too.
As you might know, putting on these events requires a lot of help. We will be running a points competition for volunteers with a £50 Ingatestone Voucher for the winner in 2017. If you can help contact Jill Perry email@example.com or Jan Arthur as above. Volunteers also get a food goody bag and EATG vouchers for money off events or membership. There may be other goodies too!
We the Committee look forward to seeing you and your friends at future EATG TREC Events.
Jill Perry, Chairperson, Jan Arthur, Secretary, Sandra Deeran, Treasurer, Jane Snowden, Membership Secretary, Jade Schofield, Publicity.
A big thank you to Gary Thomas of Applied Image who has helped us design and build the new site.

TREC is a sport intended to test the skills of a horse and rider in planning and executing a long distance ride in unfamiliar country. It originated in France as a way of testing and improving the skills of trail ride leaders, and was introduced into the UK in the early 1990s.
We are affiliated to TREC GB the controlling body for TREC in the UK.
East Anglia TREC group welcomes new members and any type of horse can compete.See More
