Alvechurch has a strong junior (under 18) section and runs monthly meetings at Gracelands Equestrian Centre – see the Calendar for dates.
The morning session, Alvechurch Acorns, is a ‘minis’ section. Riders are welcome from 2 yrs of age and they enjoy a variety of flatwork, games and mini jumping (lead rein, assisted and unassisted). The sessions are divided into groups of similar age and/or ability with the aim to improve the children’s balance and control through fun and games working towards achievement certificates.
The afternoon group, Alvechurch Acers, is for older juniors and focuses on showjumping coaching to improve their competitive skills and confidence. They benefit from making new friends and work towards gaining places in the successful junior club teams.
We also hold a Halloween, Christmas and Easter events where fancy dress is optional (for riders, parents and helpers) and extra special games and fun can be enjoyed.
Members pay £12 per session and non-members are welcome at £15 each.
