2021: Happy New Year!

Despite all the struggles that 2020 brought us, as a Riding Club we still managed to hold some very successful events. The year started off with an amazing talk by Sara Green on Dressage to Music which was really well attended and requests for another one came thick and fast. Great fun was had at a showjumping clinic with Mark Corbett held at Rawlins Farm, Ramsdell and in the latter part of the year we had a clinic with International Dressage rider Matt Hicks at the fabulous venue Hurstbourne EC. Another event we hope to repeat in 2021.

Well Done to all of you who have represented Tadley & District Riding Club in 2020 and we have had some great results. In February before lockdown we had representation at showjumping and then, even with restrictions in place, we attended events which included Dressage to Music, Arena Eventing, Intermediate and Novice dressage. The Intermediate dressage held at Wellington EC was won by a team from our club and massive congratulations go to Amanda Taplin, Janet Zaremba , Melissa Howett and Claire Shoesmith and hopefully they will be able to attend the BRC Championships this April at Bury Farm.


See the Team News page for reports on the great achievements of some of our members in October 2020.

See the Training page for a super report on the XC training organised by the club.


The Committee hope that you are all coping throughout this unprecedented situation and are managing to spend some time with your horse, what therapy! We have run 2 “video” dressage competitions this year.



Darren Doyle will be sponsoring the Intro Test and the Pick Your Own classes in our Open Unaffiliated Dressage Competitions at The Croft. The results will accumulate throughout the year and the winner will be announced at our AGM.

In 2020 we cannot have an AGM so the results are on the Results page of our website.





CONGRATULATIONS to our own Lyn Barley who is now a List 5 BD Dressage Judge!

Well done from all at Tadley & District Riding Club.
