Membership

Our Membership quota for the remainder of 2020 is now full.  We don’t want to have to turn away any of our members from competing with us, but we have to adhere to the restrictions of numbers on the show ground in line with government guidelines.  As restrictions ease off, this will be reviewed.

Who are we?

  • We are a friendly club based in Ashley, Cheshire, close to M56 J6 with our own showground and cross country course.
  • We are a member of Area 3 of British Riding Clubs, known as the Northern Liaison Group (NLG).

What do we do?

  • We run a variety of competitions for our members and training sessions to help improve their riding and confidence.
  • Our main aim is for people to have fun with their horses.

Who are our members?

  • We have around 150 members aged from 4 to 70+ years.
  • Abilities range from the true amateur through to the more competitive rider.

What does membership offer?

  • Access to shows, competitions and training at reduced prices.
  • You will receive a membership card and subscription to the BRC quarterly ‘Rider’ magazine.
  • You get a 10% discount at Chelford Farm Supplies (with some exceptions).
  • Compete on teams or as individuals at BRC Area Qualifiers and perhaps even National Championships.
  • Compete on our Show Team at STARS (subject to being points winner at the end of the show season).
