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, Ridden & In Hand Showing and Working Hunter. We also participate in team and training events throughout the year.
We invite new and existing members to join the club. The club is available to all riders and social members from aged 13 yrs and upwards. You can do this quick and easily online by following this link
We are now taking applications for membership 2019. The club welcomes existing members and new members alike. We are pleased to announce that the club has lowered its joining age for junior riders from 15 down to 13 years. There are lots of activities and shows planned for 2019, in addition, we organise visits to other areas competing as individuals and teams. A friendly & encouraging riding club awaits you.
