We are a local grassroots riding club based in Hertfordshire with a big heart, catering to all abilities from tiny tots on lead reins to those more experienced competitors. With several rings to watch or compete in including: a show jumping from cross poles at 30cm to 1m, 1 ring for Dressage, 2 rings for showing (in hand and ridden) and a ring for clear round and Working Hunter. 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.
DDRC 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 competition ladder.
Membership of our club is open to all, for more info on membership please visit the membership page.
If you are new to jumping/showing or dressage then visit this page. We have written down some tips to make your day more enjoyable.
If you need any more information please use the contact us page.
What’s new for 2024?
From the May show onwards, we will have combined training. This is dressage and show jumping together. The aim being that the riders in these classes will have to show two skill areas.
The return of chase-me-charlie. The jumps will start at 50cm and will increase till there is only one rider left. They will obviously be the winners.
We are increasing the size of the warm up arena and will also increase the policing on it to make sure that not too many competitors enter the ring at anyone time.
We have moved the TGCA classes to the beginning of the day.
We will issue start times to competitors so that people have an idea on when and in which ring they need to be. The start times we hope will be withing 15 mins of the actually time, but obviously in the case of a more severe accident then the times could get blown out of the window. This does mean that competitors MUST be ready at the start gate no later than their scheduled time. Classes will not start more than 10 mins ahead of schedule but listen to the tannoy if a class is going to be starting earlier
With the start times we will also have tried to avoid clashes for competitors, but in case times get moved slightly please let us know if you have a problem.
Live results. We are aiming to have live results for each of the classes as they finish so you will be able to see where you came even if you did not place.
You can qualify for lots of shows around the country by competing at Dacorum. Each on has its own rules with a copy of the rules for each type available in this section.
