Kizzy Cup 2018

For 17 years we have been honouring a wonderful mare called Kizzy. Many are the riders she took safely through the ride-outs and lessons at Bel-Air! In 2001 a perpetual trophy was given by two of her biggest fans, Ursula Carlin and Marion Kennedy.

Once again on the 17th and 24th of February 2018 we will be holding the Kizzy Cup Dressage League. This is a league for members of Bel-Air Riding Club only. Details about tests, dress code, etc. are posted under Events on this site.

    

2018 – Dressage Training, Kizzy Cup, Mini Midi Maxi and more

Dressage training with Stephen Byrne 30 Jan and 13 Feb, and Kizzy Cup dressage league 17 and 24 Feb are the first club events this year. There will also be mini-midi-maxi, show jumping training, cross country training with Noni, hunter trials and much more. Details about each event will be available under Events.

Bel-Air riders did very well in the annual awards league too: Brenda Boyne 4th in AP showjumping, Rachel Clarke 4th in intermediate show jumping, and Liz Daly 3rd in open dressage. Congratulations!

If you are curious to know who else were there, Hollybrook has an album up with lots and lots of photos.
