Advice for Equestrians during the Coronavirus outbreak

I hope that all our members, your family, friends and horses are enjoying good health at these difficult times. The committee continues to monitor the latest government advice which is at present to stay at home and stay safe. It would have been a lovely day for our annual Hunter Trials at Coombelands last weekend and there will be no Horse Trials or Open Show for 2020. 

The British Equestrian Federation published an update today, 28th April which explains the challenges facing our sport. Fortunately Horsham has no expensive overheads, the committee are all volunteers and we don't own or rent a venue so when life starts to return to normal we will be able to pick up our programme of competitions and training.

I've attached a link to the latest advice from the British Horse Society which if haven't you already seen in may be helpful.

BRC Coronavirus Update

Attached is the latest statement from BRC about the coronavirus. As a club we had already made the decision to cancel the dressage on 29th March and postpone the Hunter Trials which was meant to take place on 19th April. BRC advises canceling all events up to 31st June 2020 which sadly means that the Novice, Intermediate, Festival of the Horse and Horse Trials Championships will all be cancelled.


Full refunds will be given to everyone that entered the March dressage competition. 


The HDRC committee wishes all members, their families and friends the best of health in these difficult times.

New Whip Rule

Attached is a copy of the new BS whip rule that will also apply to any BRC competitions




Unfortunately Jenny Hickman has decided to step down as a committee member and will be very much missed as an active and supportive member of the committee.


This now means we are seeking someone who has the time and energy to be actively involved with organising training for club members. We have committee meetings every 6 to 8 weeks to discuss the upcoming events and welcome new ideas or suggestions of activities that members would be interested in. Our next meeting is on Monday 13th January and it would be possible to attend some of the meeting to find out more. If still interested you could be voted onto the committee at our AGM in February.


Contact Caroline Exley - or Carol Porter - or any committee member for more information
