Welcome to Rutland Riding Club!
Novice Winter Dressage Championships 1st April 2017
Many congratulations to Jane Armstrong and Cork Beauty who came second in their Preliminary 2 arena at the Novice Winter Dressage Championships, held at The College Equestrian Centre, Keysoe on 1 April. Beauty produced a smooth, forward and rhythmic Test that was a pleasure to watch.
Congratulations are also due to Mel Bennett and Alderfarn Z who came fifth in their Preliminary 2 arena. Jerry showed top quality paces and supple, relaxed work; the epitome of a good Preliminary Test. It was disappointing, that for such super work, he was not rewarded with more generous marks.
Dawn Ross and Magnum van Overis Z and Sue Scott and Ballintemple Myles completed the Team, who came 13th out of the 31 teams taking part.
Special thanks are due to everyone who rode, as we were only invited to compete at the Championships a couple of weeks beforehand, as one of the qualified Area 16 Teams had dropped out.
Team results are available on the Results page .

I am an MSc Equine Science student at Hartpury College currently collecting data for my dissertation, for which I am investigating current equine grassland management practices in the UK via an online questionnaire. I am trying to access respondents throughout the UK to ensure that my results will provide a representative sample of the horse owning and loaning population in the UK.

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.
