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

A collage of photos kindly provided by LRG Photography to show the fabulous Working Equitation competition held at Wanley House on Sunday. Two total newcomers to the sport did brilliantly with Cayley Parsons on Peter Pan coming third and Val Hall on Sway Molly Moon coming seventh. GDRC in conjunction with Tracey Simon from Wanley are planning more "taster" days very soon.

GDRC - Dressage to Music

 

GDRC are bringing Dressage to Music(DTM) to grass roots level and are introducing a series of competitions aimed at Walk & Trot and Prelim. In the past the problem has been getting the music ready to ride to but we have found an inexpensive way of doing this that will also include your floor plan. Don't worry about your horses paces the music can be purchased for 13hh-15hh and 17hh horses.

Let me tell you about costs to get into DTM. Music and floor plans with choices of music from Abba to Queen, American TV themes to Classical music will cost £35. For this you get a fully prepared CD timed for the test your are entering and the floor plan showing changes of pace. You would also have to become a member of British Dressage music membership to protect copyright on the music. This costs £30 a year. Your only other requirement is a class entry fee and of course a horse.

 

Haven't you always wanted to ride to music? Now you can at W&T and Prelim level.

If you have ANY queries or need to order music please contact me at davidcbeer@fastmail.fm or telephone me on 0740 2307957
