Welcome to Rutland Riding Club!

BRC Area Dressage Qualifier: 17th June, 2018, Arena UK

The Club sent four Teams and two Individuals to the Area Qualifier, held at Arena UK

The Preliminary Dressage Team was =3rd, dropping to 4th when the fourth rider was included, in order to split the result.  Carol McCarthy was 2nd in her arena and we hope Carol will have qualified for the Championships at Lincoln in early September. Sarah Bowker was 3rd in her arena. The Open Dressage Team was unplaced, but Jane Armstrong was placed 5th, individually, in Novice 27 . The two Riding Test Teams were 3rd and 4th, with Jane Armstrong taking 2nd place in the Novice Riding Test and we hope Jane will have qualified for Lincoln. Emily Lumb was 5th in the Novice Riding Test and Julia Cole also took 5th place in the Preliminary Riding Test.

The Individual qualifiers saw Rosemary David in 1st place in the Elementary Dressage to Music; a lovely test that will take her and Royal Mail to the Dressage to Music Championships at Bury Farm at the end of September. Many congratulations to Rosemary! New to Medium Tests, Pippa Owen and Claude Debussy were a credible 6th in the Medium/Advanced Medium qualifier

Many thanks to everyone for competing; another long day and, unfortunately issues with calculating the results for the Riding Test, which delayed things further. The full results are in the Results section.

50th Anniversary

This year the Club is celebrating its 50th Anniversary!

Rosemary would like to thank everybody who contributed to making the 50th Celebration show a very happy and successful day on Sunday 3rd June. The dressage and show jumping results are now available on the 'Results' page .

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 insurnace.

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.
