Welcome to Battle, one of the most historic riding clubs in the country, having been founded in 1951 as one of the original riding clubs and still thriving today!
This long established and greatly loved club has important connections, one of which was that when at school in Benenden, Anne the Princess Royal was a member!
What we are like:
Battle is a welcoming club covering a wide area that listens to its member’s ideas and endeavours to provide what they really want. You will not find an unwanted high-pressure culture here, but if you want to compete we’ll support you to help you on your way! See Events here
Competing – or not…
We do send teams to the British Riding Club Area competitions, and individuals are also supported at these events too, but if competing is not your thing and you just want to improve that’s fine too. We’re open to new ideas too, so ask away!
We have loads of cups and trophies that are awarded to the winners of events, these include Dressage, Show Jumping and Hunter Trial Championships, and which are included in an accumulative points card scheme. Everything equestrian that you do counts towards our scheme, including training. Points cards can be downloaded here.
Some people think they will be expected to show up at everything we do – not so! You can do as little as you want as a member, which is to help on one occasion only, or get really involved, whatever you like!
We have an attractive incentive scheme, which gives you money off or vouchers to help spread the cost of training and competing, and there are special rates for yard membership or families – just ask! Click here to join us.
