The club is already using Wanleys House for a series of gridwork and jumping clinics with instructor Chris Watts and is planning some flatwork clinic
The recent dressage event on the October 27 saw more than 45 entries even though it was a wet and windy day with the big storm forcast looming.The last dressage to be held at Hangleton wil be on November 24.
