Halesworth and District Riding Club

Welcome to Halesworth and District Riding Club. I love this time of year with the longer days & warm evenings. I hope everyone else is enjoying the company of their 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 events are fully vaccinated against all current Equine Infuenza Viruses with 12 monthly booster vaccinations (no injections 7 days prior to competition/training).

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.

Huge Thank You to everyone who competes for us in the British Riding Clubs Team Competitions and Huge Congratulations to those who have already competed and qualiifed for the 2019 Championships. Remember ALL Members are more than welcome to enter the Qualifing Competitions throughout the year.

Anyone interested in making up a team either Senior or Junior riders for the British Riding Club Winter Qualifiers in Dressage & Show Jumping please contact Our Team Manager & Chair Michele Hurst or Katie Waterfield (Senior Dressage Team Manager).

The Le Trec training started in May and Jill will be running Wednesday evening training throughout this Summer at the Club Field, Valley Farm, Bramfield.
