Welcome to Tendring Hundred Riding Club
THRC is affiliated to the British Riding Clubs (BRC) which exists to provide support and encouragement to amateur riders of all levels – from the dedicated competitor to the happy hacker.
THRC run a variety of events, with something for everybody. Events include dressage, show jumping, arena eventing, in-hand & ridden showing, gymkhanas, rallies and training clinics. There are also opportunities for members to be part of a team and to represent THRC at BRC Area and Championship events. We usually run a few social events and have an AGM with prizegiving at the end of the year.
The club runs with a voluntary committee, although help is always needed and very welcome to assist with setting up, running & clearing away after events. If you are interested in volunteering please visit our contacts page. Please remember that as a member of THRC it is expected that you will help at one or two events each season.
Please use the left hand navigation bar to guide you round the website. You will find schedules and entry forms for each discipline under the 'THRC Events' tab.
Please visit the 'Club News' page for photos, event reports and more!

EQUINE INFLUENZA STATEMENT
With the competition season in full swing at our Club field, THRC Committee advises all horses and ponies to be vaccinated up-to-date for equine influenza. We would also like to reiterate to competitors the importance of basic biosecurity procedures like avoiding nose-to-nose contact between horses (especially important at a showground with lots of different horses), washing hands, not sharing grooming tools/cloths/water buckets etc. since all these things may help limit the spread of equine influenza. If we feel that a horse or pony is showing signs of equine influenza, we reserve the right to ask that you leave the showground.
