to the South Devon Riding Club website, affiliated to the British Horse Society

An update from our Chair, Di Penfold (11 May 2020):

Hi Everyone,
I just wanted to touch base with you all and hope you are all keeping well and most of you enjoying being able to spend the extra time with your horses.
As most of you know we are governed by HQ to withdraw from any activities until the end of June when they will review the situation. As soon as we receive further instructions we will post details on the website here and also on Facebook.
We have decided to cancel our Summer Camp in July as we will not have enough time to organise it even if we are permitted to hold it.
In the meantime look after yourselves and STAY SAFE.
Best wishes

‘South Devon Riding Club are the friendliest and most supportive group of people. They run events for complete novices and nervous people,  to more accomplished riders. They make everyone feel welcome and often enjoy success at a national level. They really are a club for everyone.’ Sue Murphy, Member.

If you are an existing member, this site will provide you with dates and information on upcoming events.  Past and present Newsletters are available through the News tab.   You will also be able to find results of competitions held by the club and download application forms or link to Equo to join future clinics and competitions.  (Please note:  you will need to either have an existing Equo registration, or set one up, in order to enter our events that link to the system.  With Membership forms, currently we ask that you complete the form and send it to Elaine Cleverdon and make your payment by BACS to a dedicated account, set up for that purpose.  Please don’t send payments for anything else to this account.   For a while you might also have to enter some events by printing off the relevant form and sending it, along with payment, to the person organising the event.  We hope to use Equo more and more as time goes on though).

If you are new to horse riding, or just a non-member, then this site will provide you with an insight into our club and the events and clinics we organise for our members. The events calendar and gallery shows you the range of activities and opportunities that joining the riding club can provide. There is also a page about membership and joining the South Devon Riding Club and our friendly and relaxed family of members. We know that every rider is unique, with different interests and abilities, and we try to cater for all.
