55 years of High Fen RC -
The High Fen Riding club is based in the North Essex and South Suffolk area of the South-
The club has thrived since it was founded in 1963 by Dietmar Ackermann at his home "High Fen" on the Essex/Suffolk border, and its 100+ members, ranging from 18 (minimum age) up to ...., enjoy their love of horse riding for fun and competition at local and even national level.
The club won the British Riding Clubs' Area 14 Chairman's trophy again in 2014, having held it for most of the last 10 years through its enthusiastic and talented members, hard working and dedicated committee, and the support of its trainers and volunteers willing to give their time to the club. Over the years, High Fen teams have competed successfully in all disciplines at the British Riding Clubs National Championships and were the Riding Clubs’ Team Dressage Champions in 2012.

Novice Winter Dressage
High Fen were represented at these championships by Lucy Haycock riding her lovely grey horse Silver Viking.
Debra Harrington also qualified but unfortunately was unable to attend as her horse Parsnip Truffle was suffering with a sore back.
Commiserations to her and lets hope Parsnip soon feels better.
So Lucy made the long journey to Arena u.k at Grantham, Lincs on her own, but I think she was very pleased with her result, coming 4th from 18 starters and only 7 marks from the winner.
The individual results can be seen here.
Grateful thanks from all at High Fen and best wishes for the rest of the year.
