News from Basingstoke Farms
update - 5/Apr/2003
Basingstoke Farms will be hosting the First Annual FHTA Titled Championship on Oct. 19, 2003. This event will offer all the 'regular' FHTA divisions and classes (from Starter at 2' up to Prelim at 3'7") AND will also offer TITLED CHAMPIONSHIP CLASSES. All competitors who have earned a Title (8 qualifying rides at one level in one phase equals one Title) are eligible to participate in the TITLED CHAMPIONSHIP CLASSES - and the entry fee for these classes is FREE. Title Champ Participants will be charged the office fee & stabling fee & schooling fee, if applicable and will be charged for any non-Titled Classes/Divisions they may wish to enter. We hope that all FHTA members will get busy & get those qualifying scores in so they can participate in this exciting event. We will be giving away special TITLED CHAMPIONSHIP Trophies in these classes as well. The prizelist for this event will be uploaded to this website soon - check back for full details. If you have any questions, feel free to email us at any time!
 
There are no events scheduled to run at Basingstoke during the summer months, we are busy building a tennis court on the property (see the Information Page for court time & racquet rental details) and Equestrian Secretarial Services is keeping us hopping. But, we are open for schooling - call to make an appointment!

Schooling policies for 2003!
Starting Jan. 1, 2002, all trainers wishing to bring students to Basingstoke Farms to school, must provide us with a certificate of insurance which shows Basingstoke Farms as an additional insured. We will keep these certificates on file, they should be good for one year. To compensate our trainers somewhat for this added burden, we have decided that when a trainer brings students to the farm, he/she may school his own horse at the reduced rate of $25/horse for xcntry schooling; all other schoolers will pay the normal schooling rate of $35/horse (which is a slight increase from 2001 rates). Dressage and/or stadium schooling rates remain the same as they were in 2001. We also need to remind everyone that releases must be signed to ride or drive on Basingstoke grounds. The release may be downloaded from this website HERE. Juniors must have the release signed by their legal guardian. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in these matters.
 

Volunteers are an integral part of the workings of any Horse Trials. Here at Basingstoke Farms, we are blessed with some of the best volunteers in the world. If you would like to see a bit of what a volunteers' life is really like go here. We would love to have you join our merry band!

Hope to see everyone at the farm very soon!
