What We Do
Members benefit from an active training programme in all disciplines. Several local venues are used, and our trainers have proved to be very popular. Courses are run at advantageous rates, and in small groups to maximise the benefit to members. Check out our Training page.
The Club is keen to compete in the BRC Area Qualifiers and National Championships and Team Managers try to encourage fresh faces to join the more experienced to enter Area Qualifiers. In the last few years we have had some excellent results, and members have had the opportunity to represent the Club at National Championships. Members are chosen to compete based on their performance at local and Club events so that anybody can have the opportunity to represent the Club – often more than one team is entered so that more can participate. Check out the Ride for Meon and Call for Teams pages to find out more!
Those of a more novice standard need never feel left out, as there are Club events to cater for all standards and different disciplines. Our Annual Dressage Show is open to non-members as well and in recent years has been held at the Mayhill Stud, a popular local venue.
We also periodically run more ambitious events – One Day Events, Hunter Trials and Arena Eventing to name just a few all with varying levels of difficulty.
For those who prefer to hack out, check out our Pleasure & Social page giving details of our fun rides offered by members who will lead a group over countryside local to them.
For those members not so active on the riding front, the Club sometimes organises indoor winter meetings on many topics, with the occasional social get-together.
The Club is keen to promote the welfare of horses, and works in close liaison with equine welfare organisations to ensure that any reported suspected case of mal-treatment or mal-nutrition is followed up.
