Heather McLeod

Heather has been a keen Trec competitor for over 20 years, competing  at levels 2 and 3 as a pair and individual.  She was easily recognised on the circuit riding her expressive grey Irish sports horse Claypark Mr Podd.

She was a founder member of the very successful Keysoe and Three shires trec club, she remains a valued member of the committee even though she has relocated to Wales.

When not competing herself you will find her volunteering and cheering on the competitors.

Paul Turner

Paul Turner (of Trans Wales Trails) who was on the very first GB team and several later ones too – was the first Brit to win any kind of International prize as the recipient of a MA Championship award in 1998. He also provided a range of talented and well-trained Welsh cobs for other riders to hire (many later went on to buy their trusty steeds!).

Fiona Lockhart

Fiona Lockhart (now Foy) was on the first 2 UK TREC teams. Fiona helped to spread the news about this sport and actively recruited riders around the North of England and Scotland for several years before ‘retiring’ to return to Riding Club competitions.

Claire Pollard

Claire has devoted hours to the sport as a TD, trainer, committee member for both Central TREC Group and Keysoe & Three Shires TREC, and is now treasurer for TREC GB. Claire is also a long term competitor and regularly competes at Level 3 & 4 and has previously ridden internationally as well.

Without people like Claire we would not have the great sport of TREC.

Cath Cromarty

As a long-time competitor, Cath has bought a wealth of knowledge to TREC. A founder member of TRAC (where she remains the Treasurer to date), a member of many Working Groups and a Trustee of TREC GB, Cath has given many hours of her time volunteering in all of these roles as well as organising and officiating at competitions, training and other TREC events. Cath is also an international judge and regularly travels to European & World competitions to volunteer.

Cath has always been prepared to help and volunteer wherever there has been a need. Her input is greatly appreciated and was recognised in 2023 with the TREC GB Chair’s Award.

Anne Williamson

Anne, now sadly deceased, was a HUGE influence in getting TREC started in Scotland and kindly loaned her very talented event mare to get riders into the Senior and Young Riders teams to represent the UK in 2000 & 2001.

Anthea Kendrick

Anthea started competing in TREC very soon after it was introduced via Rob Jones and the BHS.

As a professional trek leader, she was already very comfortable with the skills required to be a top competitor.

She first competed Internationally, representing TEAM GB for many years until finally retiring from International competition in the early 2000’s.  She particularly relished the POR and still remains our highest point scorer in the International competitions.

Anthea then turned her attention to acting as the senior Chef d’equipe and after this an International judge at the FITE championships.

Whilst competing, and since retiring from competition, she has always been and remains a hugely enthusiastic Treccie, encouraging others to have a go, getting involved in training and giving talks and demos to bring the sport to other riders attention.

Jenny Snowdon

Jenny started in the world of TREC in 2003 with her homebred horse, Hobo. They both loved it and progressed quickly to Level 2a. Due to his age, they didn’t go any further up the levels.  Sadly, Jenny lost Hobo to colic in 2009, and was fortunate to be given Max on loan. Max was also very talented, but Jenny also lost him 2 years later. Since then, Jenny has had a variety of horses, but none of them have been particularly interested in TREC, plus her own health hasn’t been brilliant.

Jenny organised her first full TREC In 2004with experienced TRECcie Laurie Smith. From there, the Balanced TREC was formed and they ran several competitions in Surrey until Jenny’s move to Essex in 2013.

She continues to travel from her new home in Essex to run Winter Series competitions in Sussex. Jenny is also a TD, Judge Trainer and TREC Trainer as well as volunteering on a few TREC GB Working Groups and is always keen to promote TREC far and wide.

Katie Morgan

Katie has ridden at the top level in the UK from very early on (1999 if not before), has qualified as an International Judge and has supported the Young Rider teams through thick and thin from the very early 2000s. Katie also volunteers her time to act as chair of the FITE Liaison Working Group and keeps all at TREC GB informed of the latest news from FITE, the international governing body for TREC.
