50 years of High Fen RC -
The High Fen Riding club is based in the North Essex and South Suffolk area of the South-
The club has thrived since it was founded in 1963 by Dietmar Ackermann at his home "High Fen" on the Essex/Suffolk border, and its 100+ members, ranging from 18 (minimum age) up to ...., enjoy their love of horse riding for fun and competition at local and even national level.
The club won the British Riding Clubs' Area 14 Chairman's trophy again in 2014, having held it for most of the last 10 years through its enthusiastic and talented members, hard working and dedicated committee, and the support of its trainers and volunteers willing to give their time to the club. Over the years, High Fen teams have competed successfully in all disciplines at the British Riding Clubs National Championships and were the Riding Clubs’ Team Dressage Champions in 2012.

Winter Intermediate Dressage
Our intermediate dressage team qualified for the Championships which were held at Bury Farm, Bucks on Saturday 2nd May.
The members were Kelly Greaves & Fentons Flint; Carol Flower & Boccacio; Hannah Pearl & Alanis Van Dar Sar and Holly Latham & Arnhem.
The day ran smoothly and all combinations achieved scores in the high 60%s.
Many congratulations to Kelly and Holly who achieved placings of 8th and 5th respectively.
After a very early start we were unable to stay for the team result so I hope to find out fairly soon.
Well done to all High Fenners competing at the Eventer trials at Thorne Court, Sunday 12 April, a fab day all round -
