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

Due to a lack of pre entries we have decided to cancel the GDRC SJ SHOW that was to be held at Pyecombe this Sunday 4th June. It is a very busy weekend with three rings of jumping at Hickstead and the Hunter Trials at Coombelands.

As a club we apologise about this and will look for a date in the future to try again.
Can we invite all the entrants to roll over their entries to our popular SJXC being held on 11th June at Castle Goring or we will refund the entry.

Please let me know which you would prefer here or by email to davidcbeer@fastmail.fm .

Welcome to our 5th  Show Jumping Cross Country

We have a course of between 15 and 20 Show Jumps over the undulating land and around the woods of Castle Goring  All the fences will be knock-down-able.  The rider goes through the start and jumps round the course to the finish; the whole course it timed.  If the horse knocks down a jump that is 4 faults, if the horse refuses a jump that is also 4 faults.  In the case of a refusal you then go on to the next jump rather than trying to re-take the jump again.  Therefore every horse will get round the course with a maximum of just 4 faults at each jump.


All Classes are £12 (£10 for GDRC Members) except for Class 1 which is £6(£5 for GDRC Members). 

 £4 First Aid contribution payable per person.


No Horse can complete the course more than 3 times

Body Protectors are advised
