Recently Lisa was chosen to be the Veterinary Advisor for the TREC section of the British Horse Society.
TREC is a
unique equestrian sport based on the French discipline "Le Trec". Introduced to
Britain by the British Horse Society in 1998, TREC appeals to a variety of
riders with all kinds of horses and ponies.
The competition is designed to test a horse/rider combination through a whole range of activities rather than focusing on one particular discipline. The sport requires versatility and training, combining the requirements of trail riding, with jumping and correct basic flatwork.
TREC comprises three phases, testing the partnership's ability to cope with an all-day ride across varied terrain, route finding, negotiating natural obstacles and hazards, while considering the welfare of the horse, respecting the countryside and enjoying all it has to offer.
