About Essex Riding Clubs

 
Who are we? 

We are British Riding Club's Area 8: Essex Riding Clubs.

A collective of representatives from all the Affiliated Riding Clubs in our Area: 

What do we do?

Inter Riding Club competitions .... most are qualifiers for British Riding Clubs National finals, some are just friendly and all are great fun!

Training .... from grass roots to advanced, to get in practice!

What is British Riding Clubs (BRC)?

BRC is part of the British Horse Society and is a body made up of more than 440 Affiliated Clubs and 21 Riding Centres and in excess of 34,000 members. The clubs span right across the UK, from the Orkneys to the Channel Islands.

The British Riding Clubs movement aims to reach all types of horse and rider from the dedicated competitor to the happy hacker.

They offer a whole range of support and encouragement for riders, including national competitions, qualifications and social events.

BRC give us the rules of the qualifiers to make it fair for all and run the National competitions for us.

In the words of BRC...

Ride together - Train together - Compete together - Have fun together
