Subscriptions for 2014 are now due. You can download a Membership Form HERE 

There is a NEW Membership Form which can be downloaded on the ‘About Us’ page or above.
Can all new and existing members please fill in a 2014 form so we can keep up to date information on all our members.
You will notice a small increase in the price for 2014.  The prices for Club Show classes will however stay the same £3 a class or 4 classes for £10 – which is fantastic value!
We’re not sure all members are aware but the Club has to pay £10.50 per member to British Riding Clubs which is why our Subscriptions may appear higher than other Clubs. We still feel though that we offer amazing value for money with the prices we charge at Club Shows and the reduced entries that members benefit from at our Open Shows/Events.
The committee is also using Club funds this year to purchase a portacabin to replace the old caravans which will be used jointly for entries and show jumping judging. We are also buying more new show jumping wings and working hunter wings all which cost money but will benefit our members in 2014.

09/08 BRC National Championships – 8 September 2013

The Club had two Junior representatives this year at the Dressage & Show Jumping Championships at Lincoln.
The Club is very proud of both of their performances.
Anna Griffin & Rocky came a fantastic 4th in the Junior Elementary Dressage – just 4 marks off 1st place.
Shannan Dickenson & Avenn had a fantastic clear in the Junior Novice Show Jumping 1st round , 12 faults in the 2nd round and 2 down in the Junior Style Jumping. Shannan’s classes had 100+ competitors in the Novice and 70+ competitiors in the Style so unfortunately no placings this time but we’re sure Shannan will be back in future years - she was one of the youngest riders and Avenn one of the smallest ponies competing!
Well done again.
We hope to see more riders qualifying next year and maybe some teams?
