Welcome to our website

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.

    Blue Chip Qualifier Cancellation

    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.
