As an affiliated riding club, we are invited to enter teams in many disciplines, from show jumping, equitation umping, dressage, riding test, hunter trials, showing, horse trials and anything else that is available. We have been fortunate in getting our teams through to the British Riding Clubs Championships in quite a few of these qualifiers over the last few years, so we are a good club to belong to if you enjoy competition at a low, medium or higher level.
We provide a varied annual fixture list which includes shows, clinics, training opportunities, lectures, visits and social occasions. In fact, if our members want a new activity added to our programme, we’ll do our best to organise it. We are known as a friendly club where everyone is very welcome. However, we always try to be efficient and professional in all that we do and this makes for a relaxed atmosphere where events are running smoothly and we have time to talk to people.
We have non-riding members who just enjoy being involved in horse related activities, members who have recently started or have gone back to riding after a long break and who need to gain confidence, members who are real all-rounders who’ll have a go at anything and members who ride at a higher level.
There is no capping of membership numbers in HWRC. We welcome all new members of any age or ability to join us. We have a wealth of knowledge within our committee so are always pleased to help on any problems if we can. Just ask us!
