RRR 2014

Here's a date for your diaries for next year, nice and early so that (I hope) as many of you as possible will be able to come :-)

The RRR 2014 will run from Friday 12th - Sunday 14th September 2014. We are changing venue as unfortunately MKEC couldn't fit us in so this time we will be heading to Boomerang XC, just off the M4 in Berkshire.
They have a fantastic range of facilities, including indoor and outdoor schools and a top class range of XC jumps. 

As usual, the price (which will be similar to this year but is TBC) will include stabling for the horses, use of all the facilities and camping for us lot, complete with loos, showers and our own marquee for the all-important 3 meals a day, unlimited tea and coffee and plentiful cake, wine, beer, cider etc... 

Each year the reunion seems to get bigger and better, and for 2014 (as well as all the equestrian activities) we will certainly have a LOT more filming going on - our footage this year was amazing and we need MUCH more high definition footage of barefoot horses in action so the more, the merrier! 
Although the RRR is essentially a reunion for owners and horses who've been to Rockley, new for the RRR 2014 will be an "Open Day" on Saturday when anyone who is interested in rehab, hooves or simply wants to see some barefoot horses in action can come along and find out more. 

I'll post details of how to book before too long or you can join the RRR Facebook group for news and updates on who's going, sharing transport, meeting up and activities.

woo! can't wait, and boomerang looks fab too! great timing with announcing the dates as work were trying to get me to go to a congress that weekend and I can now officially say no!

shame we are losing the Thursday this year though :( but great idea to get other interested people to come along!

Ooh that's really close to me :D, would def like to come to the Saturday open day (or do a non-rockley barefoot rehab raid ;) given that you are still partly responsible and all- the lovely trimmer you suggested, and has had Frank sound for the last 18 months, is still coming to do him despite our recent move from somerset to wilts). We went to a veteran champs show recently and the judge's comment was that he was 'stomping well today' - That was such a fabulous comment to get given his history and I still get moments of disbelief at having him back at his best.

See you on Saturday then :-) Great news about Frank!
