What we are doing now
Hello and thank you for visiting our website!
We are delighted to announce we will be running a show in July, August and September, subject to any covid restrictions. We will be a little bit different this year and would like to keep everything very simple, all classes will be £5 each but we wont run a membership or points. We also wont be running a trophy show in September. Due to the amount of uncertainty we want to be fair to everyone and keep the shows really simple and just enjoy being able to get out! Our plan for 2022 would be to re-instate the missing elements this year.
For our July show we will be pre-entires only, please complete the entry form on our Schedule & Entries pahe and send over your payment, entries will be accepted once full payment is received. August and September may be entry on the day too. For July we cannot allow spectators and only 3 persons per horse.
The showground is in Swillington which has lovely flat showing rings, a large showing jumping arena, plenty of parking and a separate SJ and showing warm up area. Our 2022 schedule is also available to download on our Schedule page and pre-entries are open!
Our images will be captured by Shaylee Chance Photography (www.shayleechancephotography.co.uk)

Where we began and what we are about
We are a small friendly local show established in 1976. We currently hold five events a year between May and September, the August show being a fundraiser for local charities.There is something for everyone at our shows from a new beginner to the more advanced rider. We have in-hand and ridden classes as well as show jumping, Lead Rein and Novice classes. Each show has an in-hand and ridden championship split across Juniors and Seniors. Our Annual Show, held in September, is sponsored by various local businesses and the winner of each class is presented with a perpetual trophy and the highest placed member receives a prize too! Our members accrue points over the course of the season and the rider* with the most points per class at the end of the year is also presented with a perpetual trophy. On our website you will find our schedule, membership forms and pre entry forms however if there is anything else you would like or if you have any questions please contact us and we will be more than happy to help.
*please note that points are accrued as a rider and horse combination. If you would like any further details please see our rules page or ask a member of the committee. membership not running for 2021
