Throughout the year the club organises training at different levels and in different disciplines.

The club normally subsidises the cost for members out of funds raised by competitions. Whether or not you intend to compete for the club, all members are welcome to attend training. Non-members may be able to attend, unsubsidised, if there are any spare places.

Training sessions have to be paid for in advance, on booking. If you subsequently cancel your money is refunded only if you or we can find someone to take your place.

Please find below details of the forthcoming training sessions which have been arranged for Bromsgrove and District Riding Club and Worcester and District Riding Club members. The committees of both clubs are planning to work together to deliver more top class training and hope to have lots of exciting things to offer members throughout 2017. The confirmed training dates are as follows:

Friday 27th January & Monday 13th February (3-7pm) - show jumping training with Alec Trickett at Gracelands Equestrian Centre.
Alec is a British Showjumping level 3 coach and international show jumper based in the West Midlands. He made his name with his own mare Miss Africa who he competed on the national circuit and also competed the gutsy little stallion “What a Business” winning all over the country. As a respected showjumping trainer he is in high demand for lessons.
Sessions will be 1 hour, in groups of 3 and will cost £20/person. Sessions will cater for all abilities and individuals will be grouped accordingly.

Sunday 29th January (from 2pm) - 1-2-1 rider and horse training with Vicki Hancox at Dodderhill.
Vicki is a highly experienced rider who competes regularly at British Eventing and British Show Jumping events. She has extensive experience of training young, inexperienced and difficult horses and teaches a wide variety of clients across Worcestershire and the surrounding areas.
The aim of these sessions is to provide practical hands on training to help riders to get the best from their horse and improve their performance. Sessions will start with a general discussion about your horse and riding experience to identify a particular area that requires work e.g. quality of transitions, you or your horse’s relaxation or balance, Vicki will then ride your horse and will provide you with training and support to enable you to achieve success.
All sessions will be individual, will last 30 minutes and cost £25.

All prices quoted are only available to BDRC and WDRC members (non-member costs will be £30). To book your place or if you have any queries about the training sessions please email or text/phone 07932710271. Payment will be required on booking.
