Whilst continuing to keep everyone safe throughout 2022, we’re looking forward to our members enjoying lots of training, fun and friendship. We welcome senior and junior, riding and non-riding, members.
The What’s On page is regularly updated with all the training and team fixtures as well as our monthly Lunch Get Together. The Wey Valley Riding Club (official) Facebook page also provides regular news and updates and members receive informative newsletters via email too.
There are plenty of opportunities for members to compete in Club events and to represent WVRC in online, local and British Riding Club (BRC) Area competitions as well as Area and National Championships. Last year, 39 members represented WVRC in teams with 18 of them qualifying for Championships. We were especially proud when our Senior 90 Arena Eventing Team WON to become the 2021 National Champions and when one of our youngest members, eleven year old Bethy and her lovely pony, Salsa, retained their BRC National Junior Prelim Dressage to Music Champion title.
Our excellent instructors are experienced at teaching all ages and riding abilities. They love to help our members have fun achieving their personal goals as well as preparing our teams for competitions. Training is offered in all disciplines and at a variety of venues throughout the year; it is also great value for money!
Events WVRC will be running this year include three Dressage Series at Priory (a total of 9 shows) and our big, annual Summer Show, offering something for all ages and riding abilities, at Munstead on Saturday 2nd July. WVRC does not charge any online booking fees and members benefit from reduced entry fees to all Club events as well as subsidised team entry fees. Members are awarded points whenever they compete at our events or represent the Club and there are lots of trophies and special awards to be won! These are presented at the Club’s AGM held in January.
The success of these events relies upon the support of our wonderful members, so please be aware that all our members are required to help at 2 Club events each year. We find that having more helpers shortens the helper time ‘slots’ making it more fun for everyone!
We always welcome ideas and feedback from our members; visit the Committee page to find their contact details. If you would like to join our fun, friendly Club, you can do so via the My Riding Life (MRL) form on the Membership page or by contacting the Membership Secretary, email@example.com, 07768 741789.
