Training TREC Training with Liz Bedows

23rd February, 2019

TREC is a fun, inclusive sport that all types of horse/pony and rider can enjoy.

TREC events are run all year but in different formats in the summer and winter. Full TRECs take place in the summer and consist of three phases: the POR (orienteering or hack with a map!), MA which is a slow canter and fast walk and thirdly the PTV or obstacle phase. Obstacles are designed to replicate the skills needed for hacking out eg: riding under low branches or through narrow places, up and down slopes, popping over logs etc. Arena TREC events are held in the winter and consist of just the MA and PTV phases

TREC training can add a new dimension to your schooling whether or not you plan to compete and it’s fun for both horse and rider. At the clinic you will learn how to tackle a variety of TREC obstacles successfully, for example Corridor, Low Branches, Neck Rein, Bridge, S bend. Some obstacles are done lead as well!

Liz Beddows has been competing successfully in TREC for 11 years, she came top of the National Level 2A Individual League 2018, won the Level 2A Individual in the National Championships 2018 and in 2017 & 2018 was in the winning Nations Cup Team. She is a judge and TD for TREC GB and has been running events and training for 7 years as TREC4All. She has a calm and relaxed style of coaching and enjoys introducing newcomers to TREC.
