Burbage Riding Club has had a strong influence in grass roots equestrian show for over 60 years.
We currently hold our main shows at: Stoke Lane, Hinckley, Leicestershire, LE10 3EB
Our dressage shows are held at: Lakeside Equestrian, Hall Park Farm, Enderby Road, Thurlaston, Leicestershire, LE9 7TF
With a hardworking committee every year, the club runs grass roots events ideally suited to novice, nervous riders and the more experienced alike.
Historically, Shows run on a Sunday however for the 2022 season, we have opted to run on a Saturday. This proved to be a huge success and will continue to run on a Saturday for the 2023 season. Whilst still maintaining our regular events every fortnight from 1st April through to the end of October.
With a range of classes to suit every discipline of rider from Showing, Fun showing, Dressage, Gymkhana games, show jumping and mini show jumping. We cater for the very young riders just starting out to our more experienced and competitive riders.
We pride ourselves on our warm friendly atmosphere, allowing our competitors to time and advice in gaining experience and confidence, whilst empowering each and everyone to build on their self-esteem.
Our show ground allows masses of parking space ( For those of you who struggle manoeuvring! ), large warm up arenas and well maintained flat rings.
Onsite at shows, we do have toilet facilities and an outside catering supplier. We will have a photographer at the majority of the shows where photographs can be purchased from their website.
Our dressage shows are held at: Lakeside Equestrian, Hall Park Farm, Enderby Road, Thurlaston, Leicestershire, LE9 7TF on large 40 x 20 sand ménage with good parking and warmup areas. This allows us to also run through the rougher winter season although this is weather conditions depending.
Without the ongoing support of the dedicated and hardworking committee, none of our shows would be possible. Every year, the committee is responsible for:- organising shows, setting up, packing up, maintenance along with judging and running the shows and organising the “behind the scene” things in order to allow the shows to happen.
