The instructors were amazing and there was a great choice of who to work with, on which disciplines
The organisation was great and everyone enjoyed the instruction - we had up to 12 classes per day, covering show-jumping, flat work, TREC and cross-country.
The horses seemed to enjoy the surroundings as much as the riders did, and all abilities were catered for
It was good to see some of the Glenbrae committee relaxing with their horses rather than running events!
Our instructors were a well turned-out lot. Here we see Elspeth in her rather fetching wellies
The horses remained unfazed by the wellies and enjoyed a great flat work session
Even our camping was posh - nice barn to keep any rain off and soft straw under our beds.
On the Saturday evening we enjoyed a meal in the function room where we were able to sit and relax after a busy day.
Even the Auchinleck dogs were jealous of Meg the Collie's accommodation!
The Sunday morning cross-country lesson seemed a bit daunting for some members...
...but once in the saddle everyone was all smiles
Let's start off with some nice logs
OK - now let's go a bit higher
Higher still - and wider!
with plenty of fun in between each jumping section as well as quality instruction
Water seemed an attraction and was safely navigated by all...
The horses were showing a clean pair of heels at the jumps
The cross-country course was uphill and downhill
and some of it was even flat
Our instructors were calm, knowledgeable, inspiring, and fun, giving members the confidence to try something new or aim for a little greater difficulty than they would normally.
As always, members were brilliant at supporting each other, celebrating success and encouraging those who were less confident
There were obstacles for all levels of development.
After lunch a quick photo opportunity

Then it was back to the action
Weary but happy, we made our way home early Sunday evening.
