Ashby and Orton Riding Club has over 60 years of history. Our 2019 season of events is again at Grangewood, by kind permission of Mrs Jane Kirkland.
Grangewood is an exciting, versatile venue. We host events – either at :
- the livery yard with its indoor and outdoor surfaces; or
- the summer show field in the National Forest.
In 2019 we will be offering
- show jumping
- showing – in-hand and ridden
- gymkhana games, for our younger riders
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!
Dressage events are held throughout the year at Grangewood Farm Livery. Tests are ridden on the outdoor school (40x20m) with warm up in the indoor arena. Some of the events are combined 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.
