SADDLERS RIDING CLUB
2020 SHOW SEASON
The Committee regrets to announce that we have taken the difficult decision to cancel all Saddlers Riding Club Shows for the 2020 season.
This has not been an easy decision for the Committee to make. Following the guidelines which have been set out by the government regarding Covid 19 for the forthcoming months it would not be responsible for us to hold the shows safely .
Our paramount concern is for the health and wellbeing of our competitors, judges and stewards during this time.
Also, we feel that as adequate vaccination of horses is difficult, and following 2019 equine flu outbreak it would be negligent of the Saddlers Committee to risk the health of your horses.
We hope for your support on this decision.
We will be back in 2021! Please feel free to contact us if you would like to join the committee and help to make 2021 the greatest year possible!
We wish you all the best and stay safe.
Saddlers Riding Club was first established in the 1960's and we will soon be celebrating our Diamond Anniversary.
Saddlers Riding Club got its name from its Walsall origin, after Walsall Football Clubs nickname and in recognition of the famous Walsall Saddle Makers.
The club moved to Burntwood near to the Redmoor Inn during the 1970's and then later to Chorley.
Back in the early days, competitors would turn up with their horses and whatever equipment they had to set up jumps and gymkhanas.
Famous riders such as Geoff Glazzard and Carl Freeman started out at Saddlers Riding Club and more recently we have seen riders go from learning the ropes to competing at HOYS, Olympia and The Royal International to name a few.
We cater for the genuine grassroots competitors and those looking for a fun and supportive environment to enjoy their horses.
