Welcome to the Oldham & District Riding Club website
Once again in 2019 we will have three shows in each of the four disciplines of Dressage, Show Jumping, Ridden & In Hand Showing and Working Hunter. The Charity Memorial Mini One Day Event and the Winter Dressage League (with a Team element) are included in our Schedule once again along with the Sponsored Ride, and instruction will continue to be provided. Dressage clinics and showjumping clinics and practices may also feature in the year’s activities.
We are continuing with the new classes for nervous novices in Working Hunter and Showjumping, and the end-of-season awards for riders aged 50+. We are continuing the inclusion of additional classes at each of our shows to raise funds for charities such as North West Air Ambulance, Motor Neurone Disease, our Club Container Fund and Friezland Arena repairs.
The British Riding Clubs “Grass Roots League” offers all members the chance to participate in a National League for Intro and Prelim Dressage and for 60 and 70 cm Showjumping classes. The League is now up and running and you can participate in it by attending ODRC Dressage and Showjumping Shows.
We have excellent inhouse online facilities that allow you to book ODRC events online without incurring extra charges.
