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 Pyecombe.  Plus Clear Round evenings throughout the Summer. For 2019 we are introducing Online Video Dressage and Trec. 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.

Welcome to our 10th Show Jumping Cross Country
We have a course of between 15 and 20 jumps over the undulating land of the privately-owned woods at 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 You then go on to the next jump. Therefore, every horse will get around the course with a maximum of just 4 faults at each jump.
Pairs classes involve first member jumping jumps 1 to 10 carrying a whip baton. This is then handed over to second rider who jumps 11 to 20. Total round is timed.
All Classes are £12 (£10 for GDRC Members) except for Class 1 which is £6 and £5.
Pairs entry is £17 (£15 for GDRC Members)
