Ruth Starey passes her BHS Senior Equitation and Senior Coaching assessments

Huge Congratulations to Horsham & District RC's member Ruth Starey for passing her British Horse Society Senior Equitation and Senior Coaching assessments.

Ruth runs a small livery yard and competes her horses to different levels including BS foxhunter and BE novice and is hoping to progress two to intermediate level as soon as the weather permits. Ruth has regularly represented Horsham at Riding Club Championships over the past years all on horses she produces herself. Ruth is inspired through her passion to learn and to push herself to new levels and will be hoping to take her stable managers assessment soon. She loves to teach and see people progress, this brings Ruth a lot of joy. 

Ruth is not just content to be a succesful rider and coach she is also a qualified Equine Body Worker. An Equine Sports Massage has proved to have many benefits for your horse including improved gait and mobility, improved circulation, relief of tension and much more.


If you would like to have a lesson with Ruth or discuss the benefit of a sports massage for your horse contact her on 07708 066089 or email rseventing@gmail.com


The committee would like to wish AJ and Richard congratulations on the birth of their son Alfie in March.


As you can see from this picture AJ is having a wonderful time being a mother but it means that sadly we are losing her as a committee member, although thankfully not from HDRC completely. Her energy, enthusiasm, IT knowledge and great sense of humour will be greatly missed by the committee. This means that we have a position available to fill. If any members are interested in joining our lively group please contact any committee to find out what's involved.

Your club needs you!

The Hunter Trials on Sunday 22 April and the Horse Trials on 3rd June need lots of volunteers to arrange.

This year especially Carol Porter has lost her usual Chief Dressage Steward at the horse trials and really needs someone with experience to run this. 

There are many different jobs to do at both competitions and you don't have to be horsey. We always provide our volunteers with refreshments so why not put the date in your diary.

For the Horse Trials on 3rd June contact Carol Porter carolporte@aol.com

For the Hunter Trials on 22nd April it's Caroline Exley, caroline.exley@talk21.com




Horse Passports

A reminder to members that when traveling with your horse you MUST have your horses passport with you. It is an offence to move your equines without their passport. Should you breakdown and you call  for recovery the first thing they ask is do you have your horse's passport? If no they have to report you to DEFRA and no transporter can move you. It is a very large fine plus the cost of being recovered by the Ministry
