Evenlode Riding Club is a British Riding Clubs affiliated organisation which was formed in March 1956 to provide training opportunities and competitions for riders in the Cotswolds, including those interested in dressage, showjumping and eventing, or horse trials as it was known then.

This friendly club is run entirely by volunteers and has in the region of 80 members. We aim to hold regular training sessions in dressage, showjumping and cross-country at venues in the local area using popular and talented trainers to help our members get the best out of their horses. We also run both a summer and winter dressage series of unaffiliated shows for riders from beginner to elementary level. In addition we send teams and individuals to represent the club at area level competitions (BRC Area 18), with the aim to qualify and compete at the various National Championships that take place throughout the year in the core equestrian disciplines.

Winter Dressage Series

Our final  evening winter dressage series at the Unicorn Equestrian Centre in Stow is on Wednesday 13th March 2024.   Warm up is limited to 4 people at a time (plus the person riding the test) in the superb indoor school, so plenty of room for warm up inside.  This is for the Members’ points league and non-members are very welcome.  Start times will be from approximately 4 pm onwards, depending on numbers.
