Meet the members
The Red Rose Rockets formed in October 2002 and are based around the Preston/Blackpool area of Lancashire although we have team members from all over Lancashire and Greater Manchester.
June 2008 saw the Team split, with 5 members, taking our 1st team,and dogs from our 2nd,and third team, and setting up their own fully trained teams. this left us with a few problems as we had enough to put together 3 teams, but had 4 dogs that had to go last!! 4into 3 will not go, so we have slowly been working on the problem with very good results.Although splitting half way through the season, left us in a difficult position,we have worked together as a team and finished the 2008 season with positive results.we aim to be competitive but most of all have fun; there's no room for blind ambition or individualism in this team, what we achieve we achieve together.
We train weekly at World Horse Welfare Penny Farm, Blackpool (an equine rehabilitation centre) and compete regularly especially throughout the summer where we often spend our weekends all camped together at tournaments as a team, it's not all about the dogs!
