Halesworth and District Riding Club

Welcome to Halesworth and District Riding Club. As we go into February fingers crossed the weather stays kind and the ground drys out enabling us to get out & about with our horses & ponies.

Part of the rationale of HDRC is to be a friendly, welcoming club for everyone, regardless of their level of ability and I think we can be justifiably proud that we have achieved this.

Many people mention to me on a regular basis how friendly we are as a club, so let’s continue supporting each other in the sport that we love.

Details of all our Training Sessions, Competitions and Social Events are available on this site, and on our Facebook page.
Our events are usually open to everyone to enjoy, However, Members do benefit from reduced entry fees and the opportunity to attend the Training Camps and specialist training sessions held throughout the year. Please Note – We currently request that All horses & ponies taking part in our Local club events are fully vaccinated against all current Equine Infuenza Viruses with 12 monthly booster vaccinations (no injections 7 days prior to competition or training).

From March 1 2020 Those competing in British Riding Club National Championships and area qualifiying events will need to have consecutive primary injections & boosters. A Flu vaccination is now required within 6 months and 21 days of the competition. Full BRC rules are on the www.bhs.org.uk website.

Thank you for your continued support at our events both spectating and competing, as ever we are keen to hear your feedback throughout the year, plus of course anything else that you would like us to consider in the future.

A Big Thank You to everyone who competes for us in the British Riding Clubs Team Competitions and Huge Congratulations to those who competed and qualified for last years Championships and to those already competing and winning the Winter Qualifying events in order to attend the 2020 Spring Championships.
