Ashby and Orton Riding Club has over 60 years of history. Our 2021 season of events is again being held at Grangewood, by kind permission of the Kirkland family.

Grangewood is an exciting, versatile venue. We host events at the livery yard with its indoor and outdoor surfaces.

In 2021 we will be offering dressage both day and evening events, in hand showing and ridden showing.Unfortunately, we are not offering any jumping or gymkhana classes this year.

PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO COVID RESTRICTIONS AND THE NEED FOR SOCIAL DISTANCING, ALL EVENTS ARE PRE-ENTRY ONLY. NO ENTRY ON THE DAY.

The club welcomes competitors of all ages and abilities and aims to offer a fun and welcoming environment for everyone to enjoy having fun with their horses and ponies. Events are open to members and non-members alike – come along with your equine friend and get involved!

Events are held throughout the year at Grangewood Farm Livery. Dressage tests are ridden on the outdoor school (40x20m) with warm up in the indoor arena. Some of the events are combined dressage with showing shows, and, as such, the dressage section of the event will begin after the showing events. Please check the event dates listing for more details.
