Our club was founded in 1946 by the mother of famous show jumper Pat Smythe and as such is one of the oldest in Great Britain still in operation. We presently have a membership of over 150 riders.
We cater for all abilities and accept members from eight years upwards. The club aims to promote events that enable riders to both learn and have fun, whilst offering the opportunity for members to share equestrian experiences with other riders.
We hold competitions throughout the year which may include Dressage, Show Jumping, Hunter Trials, One Day Events, Horse Shows etc. We also aim to provide many activities such as Camp, Training, Dis-mounted Rallies,
Demonstrations plus much more.
Bath Riding Club is affiliated to Area 9 of the BHS British Riding Club, this enables our members to participate in regular area competitions and training.
