Penistone & District Riding Club was founded in 1977 by a small group of local enthusiasts getting together and organising simple events. Today, a dedicated committee of members work hard to benefit all members with a broad variety of events.
We hold shows comprising of in hand and ridden showing, working hunter classes, show jumping, dressage, combined training, le trec and fun rides. Members can accumulate points at some of the shows to compete for club trophies, which are awarded at the annual presentation evening. We also hold regular charity fun shows which are themed with everyone welcome to come in fancy dress.
There are regular flatwork and jumping training clinics with local instructors, and each summer we hold a local camp. The camp comprises of three days of instruction with a competition day at the end. This is a great way to benefit from some intensive training and is also great fun with many members choosing to camp on site. We also have an annual camp at Somerford Park for thirty lucky members.
Throughout the year we organise various other events including race nights with a pie and pea supper, table top tack sales and informative talks from various equestrian professionals.
In 2023 we are proud to be running the eventing Brigante Cup final at Frickley Park in August.
