Membership

We welcome new members of all ages and abilities

We organise regular instruction sessions with preferential prices for members, covering flatwork and jumping of all standards.  Members enjoy reduced entry fees at our open events and we also run some members-only competitions and social events (family and friends welcome). Members can also book the field for training with their own instructor for a small payment of £5 per rider. Most of our events take place at our club field in Seale Road, Elstead which has natural sandy soil which drains well and stands up very well to any adverse weather. However we do use other venues on occasion, particularly for xc training, and we also hire local indoor centres for some of our dressage competitions. We issue a monthly newsletter for members and you will also receive copies of Rider, the British Riding Clubs magazine. We enter teams for local and national competitions, ensuring that all members interested in teams get the opportunity to take part.

We look forward to welcoming you to our club.

You can join by downloading the 2022 Membership Form and pay by bank transfer or cheque/cash following the instructions on the form or go to: https://www.myridinglife.com/eventdetails.aspx?id=366947
