Halesworth and District Riding Club

Welcome to Halesworth and District Riding Club. As we move into Winter fingers crossed the weather remains good for a little longer so we can continue to enjoy the company of our horses & ponies without too much ice, snow or mud!

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 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.

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.

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

Our Dressage competitions will begin again in March. The 2018 League winners will be announced at our AGM Feb 2019.

The New 2019 Dressage Schedule will be on line shortly. These Events are open to everyone. We do prefer Online Bookings for the Dressage Competitions, however Schedules and paper Booking Forms are available for all our events.

Training Sessions including Flatwork Schooling, Show Jumping and Le Trec will be running right through Winter & Spring.

Anyone interested in joining or re joining the 2019 Membership Form is available to print off below or complete online. All Membership Fees will remain unchanged
