West Sussex Riding Club

Welcome to the West Sussex Riding Club

The committee appologise for the lack of access to this website at the moment but we are in the process of updating the site and hope to have full access in the near future thank you for you patience .

The West Sussex Riding Club(WSRC) is associated to the British Riding Clubs and provides an ideal place for horse riders in the West Sussex area to further their training, compete regularly and enjoy their riding.  The club has been established for a long time and has a variety of members from different backgrounds from single horse owners to professional riders. WSRC offers many events throughout the year in all sorts of disciplines such as cross country, show jumping and dressage, as well as our annual show. There are both senior and junior sections which can compete to qualify for the annual championships – from Club, Area and National levels.

Please keep checking back to be kept up-to-date with all of the WSRC happenings such as information on all disciplines, competitions, results, training information and the latest news from the Club. Please check out the events page: new dates and events are continually being added.

We look forward to welcoming you


On the 10TH September 2014, THE WEST SUSSEX RIDING CLUB are organising a one day camp to be held at HILLANDS FARM - by kind permission of Sam Garry. This day will be open to MEMBERS (£50) and NON MEMBERS (£60) to include lunch. Places will be limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.

The day will consist of 2 training sessions with Sam Garry and Yvonne Huber as trainers for the day.

Sessions will be tailored to the needs of the riders with ALL STANDARDS catered for, ranging from the absolute novice to those at a far higher higher level of expertise.

Sam will be taking the sessions dedicated to jumping - but please, for the slightly nervous who have never actually jumped, do not worry as trot poles will be the order of the day for you.

Sam teaches a whole range of standards and gets great enjoyment and satisfaction helping people who have never or rarely jumped and hopefully the training session will end leaving the rider a little more confident and even wanting to go bigger next time!!!!!!!

Yvonne has judged locally at various dressage events and enjoys helping riders improve their riding and their general horsemanship - hopefully resulting in a few extra points for those of you competing. These sessions will again be tailored to all levels of riding and with consideration given to the horses level of training.

I know some of you out there have never had a lesson or have not been riding for long but I am sure you will enjoy Yvonne’s teaching and personality and will thoroughly enjoy her lesson and learn new and interesting things about riding.
