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. From 2015 it is affiliated to British Riding Clubs and members are encouraged to participate in Area Competitions. However, we will continue to organise events for all levels of rider locally. This year our very popular Annual Show will be held on Sunday, 30th August at Hey Lane, Scammonden.
As always, we'll be holding a variety of events over 2015 including the Fun Show, Dressage and Jumping Clinics and Competitions, Social Rides and Horse Owners Courses. Events will be advertised on the website. We also have a Facebook page which can give you up to date information about current events.
As well as getting all the benefits from being a member of British Riding Clubs, members benefit from discounts for club events such as reduced entry fees at shows. You do not have to own your own horse to be a member. We also have social members. New members are always welcome.
Why not come along to one of our friendly monthly meeting to find out more and meet other riders in the area? 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.

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.
