Don't worry if you have never entered anything before, we are happy to talk you though the classes, rules of the different events and everyone is very understanding.
We look forward to seeing you, come along and enjoy yourself.

SHOWING - 12th May
Our first showing show took place on Sunday and what a fantastic start to the season. With STARS in mind, we had lots of new members join, and some really great classes. The new showground layout worked well and we received some lovely feedback. Looking forward to seeing you all there again on 23rd June.
SHOW JUMPING - 7th April
We kicked off the first of our show jumping shows at our new venue Fir Tree Farm (courtesy of Richard Davenport) yesterday and were delighted to have so many members and non members attend. Already looking forward to being there again on Sunday 9th June.
MDRC Competitions 2020
Having fully reviewed the guidance provided by British Riding Clubs on running competitions/events in line COVID-19 safety measures, the MDRC committee have taken the decision to cancel our planned summer calendar of events for 2020.
We are sorry this is disappointing news, but the safety of all involved and the essence of holding our family friendly enjoyable events that are financially viable are just not possible with the restrictions that BRC and Government guidance impose on us.
We will look to plan a more comprehensive winter series of events should guidance allow this and will keep you updated.
For those who have already completed memberships, these will be carried forward to 2021, with only a nominal additional payment required to cover BRC fees for 2021. MDRC have to pay £15 per year per member as an affiliation fee to BRC and will be expected to pay this regardless of our inability to run any competitions.
Your membership does allow you to pay members entry fees at other Area 3 riding club competitions on production of your BRC membership card, so is still of value and will allow you to compete at local competitions run by those clubs if you feel comfortable doing so.
BRC themselves have cancelled all Area Qualifier and National Championships for this year (with the exception of some dressage to music).
