Welcome to Rutland Riding Club!
BRC Five Star Train Together Tour
BRC have once again teamed up with world class instructors, this time giving BRC members tuition in the Show Jumping discipline, at venues throughout the UK. Professional advice will also be given to the riders with two thirty minute talks, talking about the importance of clean sport and nutrition with NAF and the Worshipful Company of Saddlers will also be attending talking about tack.
The aim of these training days is to encourage our grassroots rider and to give them the confidence to move up the levels and eventually compete at our qualifiers and hopefully championships! This is a fabulous opportunity for grassroots riders to learn from world class experts. Members are welcome to join any training day in any area, as long as they meet the eligibility criteria.
There will be four levels across the day:
Group 1 level 1: Introduction to jumping and pole work.
Group 2 Level 2: 60cm-70cm- Jumping single jumps and short courses at home
Group 3 Level 3: 70cm-80cm- Wanting/aiming to compete at an area qualifier
Group 4 Level 4: 80-90cm- Have competed at a qualifier/BRC championship but not in the last 12 months

This is a fabulous opportunity for all our grassroots riders who are jumping 60cm/70cm and walk & trot and prelim dressage. All the details can be found in the handbook and our website. If you have any questions please contact Jessica Payne

It is that time of year again! Renewal forms and new membership forms are below for your convenience. As explained at the AGM, the cost of Membership has increased by £1 in order to cover increases from BRC and elsewhere. We look forward to seeing you all next year!
AGM Prize Giving
The following prizes were presented at the AGM on 22nd November 2018.
The ‘Points Cup’ and ‘Dame Mary Trophy’ dulplicate each other because points were earned only in RRC dressage competitions as there were no RRC show jumping competitions this year.
RRC Teams for Area 16 competitions
Team Managers usually circulate an email to all the members they think will be interested in joining a team for the various Area 16 competitions. However, if you are interested in taking part in any of the Area Qualifier Competitions, please contact the team manager listed on the Events page well in advance. Competitions include the discliplines of dressage, show jumping, eventing.

Third Party Liability Insurance
Recent tightening of rules regarding insurance liability have prompted the following clarification. Membership of Rutland Riding Club, or other BRC affiliated Clubs, provides the rider with third party liability insurance in the unfortunate event of an accident occuring at a training event or competition (provided that they are complying with BRC rules such as hat rules). It is a requirement that all competitors have third party liabilty insurance at the time of entry to our competitions and non-members should be able to provide evidence of their insurance.

Affiliated to British Riding Clubs
We are based in Rutland with around 100 senior members from a wide area stretching from Melton Mowbray to Peterborough, Stamford and Grantham. We run a busy programme of events each year with competitions in dressage, show jumping and combined training once a month and training is available in both disciplines for all abilities.
We also run Jumpcross and TREC clinics which have proved popular. These events take place at various venues in the area, mentioned above, as we are not based in any one particular place.
The club is affiliated to British Riding Clubs and falls within Area 16. We are regularly represented at Riding Club Area Competitions with teams and individuals in the very wide choice of disciplines available. This has enabled us to send members to the Championships in most years with notable successes.
We are always happy to welcome new members, whatever their riding capability. For our non-riding members we regularly run social events.
