We are a small friendly club affiliated to the British Riding Clubs movement and we welcome anyone who wants to enjoy being with their horse through participating in everything equestrian.
Our showground is situated at the Friezland Arena in Greenfield, Oldham.
Each year we hold three shows in each of the five disciplines of Dressage, Showjumping, Combined Training, Ridden & In Hand Showing and Working Hunter.
Tickets for our end of season dance and presentation evening are now available for purchase online or alternately via Lesley Jackson's shop in Heyrod.
You can purchase your tickets online via this link
Further information about the running order of the evening will be available soon.
We will be holding a team meeting at the White Lion Pub, Delph Lane, Delph on the 24th October commencing 7:30pm.
As a club we encourage all those who wish to participate in SJ team events to attend. It is our intention to build up our team profile, something that has fizzled out in the past. We are looking at all levels (excuse the pun), it is not all about jumping big courses. Come to the meeting have your say and let us put O&DRC back on the competitive team map.

Our final summer dressage show concluded today, thank you all for attending.
Here are the results for you to download..
Below in italics is an announcement made by the organisers of the Blue Chip Events for which we have recently run qualifiers for. This announcement effectively means that our next In-Hand, Ridden Showing and Working Hunter Show will not be a qualifier for the Blue Chip Championships.
It is with deep regret that we have had to cancel our 2016 North West Showjumping, Working Hunter and Blue Chip showing Championships due to lack of pre entries and interest. This season has been a challenge, falling competitor numbers, cancelled shows, strangles outbreaks and the weather have all been major factors.
I would like to thank you all for registering and holding our qualifiers, we hope to be back next year and I will be in touch in the new year..
The results from our dressage show run today 3rd July are available for download here..
