Hi all, a reminder of the following;

up-coming social event:

Friday 7th November 7pm at the Fox and Hounds Bridestowe,

fun skittles match playing Lyd Valley Riding Club.

Please come along and support this, bring friends/neighbours/people you pass on the way …  the game will start at 7pm prompt, and we will play the match and then eat at 8.30pm.

Food must be pre ordered and paid for in advance (main meals only– desserts ordered on the night if required) , menu attached.

obviously, if more people than the 10 required per team come, which hopefully they will, then we can mix the teams up so that everyone gets a go, or if people just want to come and cheer people on thats fine too.

Please keep an eye on the website for further details nearer the time,(middevonridingclub.co.uk)   but if you can let Carolyn know if you are interested.

 Second date –and most important :

Monday 10th November 7.pm PROMPT at the Green Dragon, Northlew , AGM

followed by a meal for members, subsidised by the club – menu below.

As some of you already know, several of the committee are stepping down after many years of hard work. We need members to step up and come onto the committee to enable the club to carry on.

Unless this happens the riding club will close.

Being on the committee would mean going to a few meetings a year, most things are done by email nowadays, helping to organise a few events (social and horsey) a year, and team management for the area comps. It is not one person doing everything, its a team effort, so theres plenty of support .

We’re hoping that people will step up, as it would be a shame if the club were to close after many years of running, so please come to the meeting and have your say.

We need to pre-book food so we need to know numbers for this please.

Anyone interested in becoming a committee member please contact me asap. So far not one person has come forward – its your club, do you want it to continue??


 menu for Monday the 10th

Chicken livers in balsamic dressing

Prawn cocktail

Carrot & coriander soup



Roasted belly pork with a cider and apple source

Fish pie with seasonal veg

A big THANK YOU to all those who came and supported our Open Team Showjumping at Southcott XC on the 8th June and of course to our helpers.

Eggesford Gone In A Flash

We had a great day and I think we had great weather, considering the downpour that followed the prize-giving after the whole event had finished in sunshine! 

We had 8 full teams competing, and all of the six heights offered were jumped.  There were some truly great rounds, horses and riders which improved hugely from their first round, a few rounds which some may want to forget and a couple of thrilling jump-offs!

Our winning team was the ‘Eggesford Gone in a Flash’ comprising Imogen Nightingale on Yewtree Foxtrot, Chloe Newstead on Max, Jack Callister on Beano and Alice Monger on Harry (a Mid Devon RC member).  They completed with a total score of just 4, whilst 2nd placed finished with 12 faults, which just shows how good these teams were on the day.


We had some amazing results at St Leonard’s. Well done all of you!!

Caroline and Titus won the 100+ class

Alice and Harry won the junior 90cm class

Amanda and Woody came 3rd in the senior 90cm class

Sally and Tilly came 8th in the senior 90cm class

Pretty good that Amanda and Alice finished on their dressage scores, Sally just added 0.8 time penalties and Caroline had just two fences down SJ!
