The aim of our club is to provide local riding enthusiasts and non horse owners with the chance to take part in weekly club lessons, local and national competitions, organized by similar clubs in association with the A.I.R.C., including Show-Jumping, Dressage, Cross-Country, One-day events, and Jump Cross (a combination of show jumping and cross country).
We are a small friendly club with a current membership of 30 ranging in ability from the beginner to Grand Prix standard.
Club members can avail of the excellent facilities at Ross House, such as an 150 x 230 ft indoor rena, 150 x 240 ft all weather sand arena with a 90 x 120 ft warm-up arena beside that.
