The FDRC was founded in 1994 by a group of like minded adults, who wished to train with, and compete against, similar adults. A committee was formed, and the club was born.
Today the club has grown to an average of 170 members a year, and goes from strength to strength. We pride ourselves on being a very friendly, welcoming club. We encourage all members at our competitions, and riders of all abilities are welcomed.
We hold regular subsidised training with popular flatwork and jumping instructors, as well as clinics with guest instructors, and training and competitions in BHS Trec. Members only may attend clinics and training sessions, however non members are welcome to compete at a limited number of our competitions before they will be asked if they would like to join. Only those over 18 years of age are allowed to join the FDRC.
The membership year runs from January 1st to December 31st each year. Each member is required to complete a help day, which can be undertaken in two half days, or one complete day. A buy out option was introduced to allow the club sufficient funds to pay another member to complete a help day in the place of a member who has opted for the buy out.
We have a range of club clothing available to order, including fleeces, polo shirts, rugby shirts etc., all excellent quality with the FDRC logo embroidered in gold.
