Welcome to Our Club!
The club was founded on 10th March 2003 and is a non-profit making organization which promotes the interests of horse owners and riders in the Pole Moor area. PMRC is a non-affiliated club.
Since the club began we have held a variety of events ranging from our very successful first annual show (held at Carr House Farm, Scammonden), children's events, social rides, lectures, treasure hunts and social events such as a fun swim and a trip to the dogs.
Pole Moor Riding Club aims to:
- Bring together local horsey people, enabling us to help each other with any problems and provide a friendly environment, as well as giving us more power in the on-going battle for bridleway access.
- Provide basic training in horse care and road safety.
- Encourage all horsey people to get the best from their horses by holding a wide variety of events.
The club holds a meeting at 8pm on the first Tuesday of each month at The Rose & Crown, Cop Hill, Slaithwaite. Everyone is welcome to attend. You can also contact us by email
The club also supports various charities through fundraising events. The club is currently supporting:
World Horse Welfare
World Horse Welfare are an international horse charity that improves the lives of horses in the UK and around the world through education, campaigning and hands-on care.
When founder Ada Cole witnessed a procession of work-worn British horses unloaded at the docks of Antwerp and whipped for four miles to slaughter, she was determined to stop the appalling cruelty of these journeys. Ten years later the campaign succeeded and 85 years on World Horse Welfare is still driven by the same desire to stop unnecessary suffering, using a practical approach and scientific evidence to deliver lasting change across the full spectrum of the horse world.
