Halesworth and District Riding Club

Welcome to Halesworth and District Riding Club. What an amazing Summer! Fingers crossed it stays warm & sunny and we can continue to enjoy the company of our horses and ponies without getting too cold, wet & muddy, like we did this past Winter & Early Spring!

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.
We have our Annual Summer Social on Sunday July 22nd with Competitions and Events for all members on our Club field at Bramfield. Entries on the Day please see Schedule link below
