Our clinics are friendly and encouraging. We usually serve tea and refreshments too, so it's a great way to meet other members and potential fellow team members !

We are always pleased for members to come forward and represent the club at area competitions. Horses are required to have an up-to-date flu vaccination certificate, please view the flu vac checker 2012 and the flu vac checklist.

Hats and body protectors will be checked at all Area Qualifiers in 2012. Here are some general guidelines about hats and body protectors and specific details about hats.

Events & Results


Information for booking

If you’re not sure about which training sessions to try, just call the organiser (No telephone calls after 9pm please). They will be able to tell you all about it and help you decide if it’s right for you. You can book using the Events Booking Calender on this site. Or you can send a cheque for that amount, made out to Bicester Riding Club, together with completed booking form, which will hold your place on the lesson, which can’t be held until payment is received. If you can’t send a cheque, you should arrange cash payment with the organiser.

If you find that you can’t make it to the lesson you should let the organiser know AS SOON AS POSSIBLE (and not half an hour before the lesson!) If they have a waiting list, or they have time to find someone to fill your place, you won’t have to pay a thing. However, if the organiser is unable to fill your place we will be unable to refund your payment.

Helpers are always welcome for putting up fences and making tea and coffee, it's a great way to meet fellow members !
