Are you looking for a horse/pony show that does showing, jumping and fun events? If so we are a local Horse Show club based in Hertfordshire with a big heart and cater to all abilities from tiny tots on lead reins to those more experienced competitors. With several rings to watch or compete in including: 2 rings of show jumping from 40cm to 1m, in hand and ridden showing, clear round jumping and an additional ring with a few new, fun classes, you will not be bored. We encourage anybody to come to the club and join in.

We are based just outside Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire in several acres of grassland within easy access from the M1/M25.

We run 5 unaffiliated Horse shows during the summer which are open to both members and non-members and so try to help  competitors get on to the first rung of the ladder. Many of the classes are qualifiers for the Horseradar CTR Championships, Festival 21 UK Championships and Think Pink Show  competitions.

Members do get a better price for entry fees as well as the chance to enter our end of year championship.

If you need any more information please use the contact us page.

DDRC runs an end of season championship for our members.

During the season, all fully paid up members are awarded points depending on their placings in each class at each show. Points are awarded to the horse/pony/rider/handler combination.

The points are awarded as follows:

1st Place = 6 points
2nd Place = 5 points
3rd Place = 4 points
4th Place = 3 points
5th Place = 2 points
6th Place = 1 point

At the end of the season, these points are added together and the member with the largest number of points for each class wins a Championship Trophy for that class. The second highest placed member wins a Reserve Champion Medal and Rosette. These trophies get presented to the winners at our Presentation Evening which takes place in October/November time.

Please make entries clear using the same name throughout for the horse/pony (and rider).

All of our members are welcome to attend, regardless of if they have won an Award. It is also a good opportunity to give us any feedback, ideas for new classes etc. We look forward to seeing you all there.


The DDRC committee would like to say a very big thank you to all of those who help, sponsor, advertise, judge and enable us to continue running of this club, not to mention our members and competitors.
