Vicky Franklin – Chairperson & Area Team Manager

I’ve been riding for over 45 years and I still consider myself an apprentice !  I’ve evented to BE Novice, had a go at BSJA, done everything RC and most things unaffiliated and am considering BD this year.  I’ve tried most things – barefoot, bitless, treeless, stabled, paddock paradise, rugged, naked (horse, not me) and am still learning !!  I am really looking forward to the challenge of becoming Chairperson of BBC and maintaining the lovely friendly, and supportive environment that makes this club second to none.

Di Dancer – Deputy Chairperson & Dressage Show

I have had a passion for horses for the last 50 plus years.  I began riding as a child but gave up in my teens, it wasn’t until my daughter showed the same passion in horses that I took an interest once again.

I owned my first horse an Arabian Mare at the grand age of 40, however these days I just potter about on my daughters Arab mare Calli and help with her youngsters.

I became a member of Bewdley Bridle Club due to my daughter Jacqui and have been on the committee for over 7 years in numerous roles.

Debby Griffith  – Club Treasurer & Training

I have been a member of Bewdley Bridle club for the past 5 years and joined the committee shortly afterwards.

My first role on the committee was organising the Sophie Cox flatwork training, this however has progressed to also being Club Treasurer which is a much more challenging role.

Horses have been my life long passion and I very much enjoy attending training, competing and going to adult camp.

I organise the Karen Oliver training at Pound Green and this is my third year with the bridle club. I currently own 3 horses of different ages and types, who have all attended various training sessions and with the support of the trainers have improve no end.
