What we do ...
During the summer months we hold Clear Round evenings and Showjumping competitions at the Club Field at Park Farm, Aldingbourne nr Chichester. Heights from cross poles upwards so something for everyone. In the event of an elimination riders will not be asked to leave the ring after 2 refusals but will be encouraged to continue and complete their round
We hold evening dressage competitions at the Club Field during the summer months. From walk/trot tests up to Novice, we try to make it as fun as possible and allow you to "come as you are", no need to plait up or wear show attire. We also sometimes have Dressage competitions at other venues, such as Brinsbury
We are very fortunate to live in a very beautiful part of the country so we arrange group fun rides from time to time . Rides are divided into small groups of riders of similar abilities with a guide to lead the way! We have held rides over the beautiful estates of Slindon and Angmering Park and are always open to suggestions for other areas to explore!
Held at the Club field during the summer months, these are very popular and great fun for all ages. Riders of similar age race against each other and are divided as follows:
Group 1. Under 8 years or lead rein riders
Group 2. Riders 9 years – 12 years
Group 3. Riders 13 years – 16 years
Group 4. Riders over 16 years
Recently we have had more adults coming along and they have all had great fun.
Races can include bending, slow walk, ride and run, munch & go, flag race and many more. Rosettes to 6th place so a chance to come home with ribbons!
We hold our Open Showing Show once a year at the Club Field and offer a range of In Hand classes in the morning and Ridden classes in the afternoon. There are lots of amazing Championship rosettes, sashes and trophies to be won.
Throughout the year we arrange numerous clinics with local instructors including Ken Spencer, Simon Luck, Julia Richards, Nicki & Michael Bates, Nikki Hawkins and others.
Full list can be found on our Events & Clinics calendar
Trec & Working Equitation
We are lucky to have some excellent purpose-built obstacles so we can offer a really good experience for you and your horse/ pony, ridden or in-hand. We hold training sessions and a competition at the Club field during the summer.
From time to time we like to put all our Members' training and practice to the test! We send teams to Meon Riding Club's Indoor Team Jumping at Crofton Manor Equestrian Centre and other events such as Team Chase at Fairoak Cross Country Course.
Each year we hold our Annual Awards Evening which is a chance for our members to get together for a social evening and for us to reward their hard work and achievements from the previous season. In addition to awards for the disciplines we also give many other awards such as Sportsmanship, Most Improved Horse or Rider, Helper of the Year, Tumblers and many more
