Equine Influenza – Official guidance from BRC in relation to the upcoming area competitions

“A lot of local vets are recommending a booster if your horses have not been vaccinated in the last 6 months which is totally fine with BRC. However please do not forget that horses must not have had a vaccination 7 days prior to an area qualifier. This means the last day for your horses to be vaccinated before the SJ qualifier is 15th February. Unfortunately any horses vaccinated between the 16th – 23rd February will not be able to compete and will have to go home. We really don’t want to send anyone home so please make sure all your teams & individuals are aware of the rules. If you… Read More

Christmas Team Jumping at Allenshill

On the 30th December on a cold but sunny day we had a fantastic turnout for the Christmas team show jumping at Allens Hill.  Sporting our hoodies, gilets and saddle cloths it was hard to miss us!  At one point there was only Ludlow riding club in the warm up arena there were so many of us.  There was a great team spirit, we walked the courses together and supported each other as each team member jumped.  We even managed to park near to each other so it really felt as if we were part of a community.  There were some great results on the day, but more importantly everyone had… Read More

Festive Progressive SJ At Stoke Court

The 28th December saw our first progressive clear round event at Stoke Court, Greete.  We catered for everyone’s needs, starting with poles and small jumps, all the way up to a meter.  There were lots of people on hand to put jumps up or down depending on needs and everyone jumped as much or as little as they wanted.  It was a very relaxed atmosphere, perfect for young horses and nervous riders although everyone was more confident at the end.  We hope to run some more of these events so look out for them on our webpage and facebook.

Why have we set up LDRC?

In response to questions regarding why the new Ludlow and District Riding club has been established we would like to clarify the following: We have set up LDRC to support and provide training for horse riders in Shropshire. Approximately 2.5 years ago the SSRC committee decided to stop providing training in Shropshire. At the time a letter was written through Louise Killey and was signed by members who lived in South Shropshire.  The letter argued that the lack of training wasn’t meeting members’ needs, as no other club provided training in South Shropshire at the time. As a consequence Louise Killey was dismissed from the SSRC committee. In the intervening… Read More
