Welcome to S&DRC
Welcome to the Shillingstone and District Riding Club. Established in 1975, we are a BHS affiliated club and form part of Area 17.
We are a friendly, welcoming club catering for riders of all abilities and interests.
Some members compete at affiliated level, while others, just starting out on the competitive road, have plenty of opportunity to gain experience at the many club based competitions.
Our events are normally held in the Shillingstone, Blandford, Sturminster Newton area, but we do venture further afield to access different facilities and instruction.

Christmas with SDRC
Next up the SDRC Christmas Party
Enjoy some horsing around over supper and a game of skittles
The Christmas ride was a great success. The ponies were a bit naughty on the first canter but then we took them for a mile long canter in the Woods and that sorted them out!
Mulled wine and mince pies in the sunshine and then a relaxed ride with stunning views from the top of Rawlsbury Camp back to the trailers
It was so much fun perhaps we should have a spring ride as well and explore a different part of Dorset
Here's to a festive season with our four legged friends
