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

What We Do1 

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 and a Hunter Trial at Titnore Lane, Goring.  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

Welcome to our 3rd Show Jumping Cross Country Kindly sponsored by Rodd Brickwork

We have a course of between 15 and 20 jumps over the undulating land of the privately owned woods. 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). Additional Classes only £6 for each horse/rider combination (only £5 for GDRC Members). £4 First Aid contribution payable per person.
No Horse can complete the course more than 3 times
