Halesworth and District Riding Club

Hello everyone,

The COVID-19 outbreak continues to take the headlines, and it’s certainly had a significant effect on our equestrian activities, however, I am delighted to let you know that we are able to start training sessions and dressage competitions again, albeit in a slightly different format from our usual arrangements.
Its lovely to be back competing & our next dressage competition will take place at Grove House Farm in Spexhall on Sunday August 23th, but because of Governmental restrictions we are limiting the number of entries per class to 8 partnerships. In addition there will be no handing out of sheets or rosettes on the day, and rosettes will only be awarded to 3rd place as a result of the restricted class sizes, so we are asking all of you to complete your test(s) and then as soon as you have finished to load up and return home, to allow sufficient space for later competitors. Results will be posted on the website within a couple of days.

Training is also recommencing with Ellie Towler, Hayley Chilver & James Stoddart at Valley Farm, Bramfield, Broads EC & Boundary Farm Cross Country at Framsden. Please look out for more details on our website or via email.

We are also very pleased to be able to support the 2020 Bergh Apton Horse & Dog Show on Monday 31 August at Bergh Apton Manor.
Bookings will be welcome through the myridinglife.com online booking system.

We hope that as further lockdown restrictions are eased, we will be able to plan more exciting events for you in the coming months, and even these may be slightly different from those we are used, we very much look forward to seeing you all very soon.

The latest announcements and guidance from BRC is attached below for your information.
In the meantime, please stay safe and enjoy your horses and ponies!

Kind regards
