Welcome to Goring & District Riding Club, a popular and friendly club based in the Worthing and surrounding areas.

What We Do 

We run many different Events throughout the year, for all standards of riding and all ages. We hold several Shows and offer lots of training opportunities too! 

Throughout the Summer and Winter seasons we run a Dressage Series at Brinsbury College. In the Autumn we hold a SJXC at Castle Goring and twice a year we run Arena Eventing at Hickstead.  Plus Clear Round evenings throughout the Summer. GDRC is also leading from the front with the introduction of Working Equitation in the UK. Non-riding Events are often held at Patching Village Hall and include lectures, tack sales and quizzes.

Training Clinics for are organised for all abilities using qualified Instructors and Trainers; we try our best to provide the training opportunities that our Members request.

We're very proud of our Senior and Junior Teams whom have been very successful in all equestrian disciplines at both Area and National level.  We try to find a Team place for everyone that would like to represent GDRC and endeavour to sponsor the entries wherever possible

We welcome new members, and are always listening to any new ideas all our Members have.
Any enquiries, please contact our Club Secretary David Beer on 0740 2307957

Our next events

DATE CHANGES. Sorry about this but with Equine Flu meaning cancellations and Mothers Day and Easter coming up I am running out of dates available at Brinsbury. The Dressage on 24th Feb has been cancelled but carried over to 31st March. This however is Mothers Day so I Have moved it once again to 7th April. So that is the date of the next dressage. Things regarding entries have got totally confused. Some people wanted a refund, some people wanted to carry over to 31st March. Shortly I will post a list of entries for 31st March so could you let me know whether you want to carry to 7th April or have a refund on your entry.
Finally I have noticed that the date booked for the true April dressage 21st April is Easter Sunday. So I have asked Brinsbury for a new date. Watch this space.
GOOD NEWS...….to keep your hand in we will introduce VIDEO DRESSAGE in March which I hope you will enjoy.
