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.

Is there anyone out there willing to take on this task for the Club? The Northern Liaison Group of British Riding Clubs is the committee made up of representatives from all the riding clubs in the North West of England. They organise the team events, qualifiers and training days in which all the clubs in the North West can then participate and possibly qualify for National competitions. Each club may have two representatives on this committee..
There open vacancies on the committee, if you are interested please contact Liz Kershaw.
