Welcome to the home of BRC Area 2

We are part of British Riding Clubs. (BRC) exists to provide support and encouragement to amateur riders of all levels. From the dedicated competitor to the leisure rider.

We offer a range of events and training through Area 2 during the year, both through qualifiers for BRC Championships and also through our Winter League which runs from October to March.

Our clubs and centres give BRC members the chance to ride, compete and train together at national competitions, training and social events.

Please look at the BRC Championship updates on the Event page.  


MICROCHIPPING - From 1st January 2020 all horses must be microchipped-spot checks will be carried out

We have had three lovely events, the first was the Horse Trials held at Northallerton EC which was brilliant with lovely facilities and great volunteers.   The second event was the show jumping held at Richmond EC, again lovely facilities, with really hard working volunteers, the last event was held on Sunday at Horsley, Near Corbridge with the dressage and riding test, again lovely event field and although quite warm, did have a breeze coming across occasionally, again our volunteers, were marvellous.    In all these events, we cannot forget the judges and the scorers.   Photographs from the event at Northallerton and Horsley are on Paul Dobson web site, and the Richmond event was photographed by Chris Lax again on his website for photos, thank you very much.

Our next event which is held in conjunction with Burgham International Horse trials on Saturday 31st and Sunday 1st August is Equine Expert Combined Training, a dressage test, followed straight after by show jumping, thank you to Jo Winfield, Equine Expert Co. for sponsoring this class, together on the Saturday is the Angel of the North Stakes, an Accumulator show jumping competition, on the Sunday we have Riding Club Team Show Jumping very kindly sponsored by LaLand Bo.  We have another sponsor BSquare Controls Ltd,  who will be sponsoring the Style Jumping.

Equine Experts was established in March 2020 to deliver online training in the wake of restrictions to travel and face to face training.  Comprising of a group of experts experienced in everything horse related, training has been designed to assist with the achievement of British Horse Society qualifications and progress towards BHS career pathways.  The training also ensures knowledge can be gained about horse welfare, handling, riding, communication and enables ongoing CPD for people that work within the equine field.

Although training is often based on the British Horse Society career pathway stages, training is offered to a global audience.  We therefore encourage suggestions regarding future training courses that students would like to take part in and encourage you to contact us with ideas for future training topics
