Solihull Riding Club is affiliated to British Riding Clubs and is part of Area 5, the area for the Midlands. Several of our members form teams and regularly compete against other Riding Clubs. We practice through training sessions and meeting using our unrivalled Riding Club facilities, and often hold the bigger Area 5 competitions on site.
BRC team competitions are a fantastic way to compete with your friends and for your Club, having a lot of fun along the way! Points competitions are a great introduction to British Riding Club competitions and the qualifiers are a unique chance for amateur riders to qualify for national championships throughout the year.
