Halesworth and District Riding Club

Welcome to Halesworth and District Riding Club. As we move into Spring, fingers crossed it stops raining, the weather warms up and we can continue to enjoy the company of our horses and ponies without getting too cold or muddy.

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, Horse Dates and on our Facebook page.
Our events are 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.

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 Congratulations to those who have already qualiifed for this years Championships.
