Dacorum and District Riding Club

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: 2 rings of show jumping from cross poles 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 helpĀ 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.
