Team Information

Senior & Junior Team Managers – Sue Stock can be contacted on and Anne-Marie Bishop can be contacted on

This page is designed to give you an idea about Club Team competitions and will carry the latest news and updates regarding team events.  Please also see the clubs Facebook page for Team information.

As the club is affiliated with the British Riding Club (BRC) this entitles members to compete in BRC competitions.

These competitions cover all disciplines and most have Novice, Intermediate and Open sections for both Junior and Senior teams, and individual riders.

The competitions are run in two stages. First is a QUALIFIER COMPETITION which is run at Area (ie local level). Our club lies within AREA 14. (Norfolk, Suffolk and North Essex)

The winning team of these competitions are then eligible to go and compete at the National Championships.

The National Championships are held at various event show grounds across the country.

We have two team managers (details above) who are responsible for organising the entries. They are very friendly and can offer advice and explain what is required of a team member.

Taking part in Team competitions is exciting. You do not need to be an Olympic standard rider but it is the next stage on from taking part in the club competitions. Dressage starts at Preliminary level, and you need to be happy at 80cm for both cross country and show jumping.
