Club history


The history of the club goes back to the 1960s when there was a single riding club in the whole of Shropshire. In 1969, this club separated into Shropshire South Riding Club and, in the north, Shrewsbury Riding Club. Our Club constitution, written in 1978, talked of “promoting good fellowship among riders” and “improving the standard of riding and horsemanship”. This is still at the heart of Shropshire South R.C.

The organisation of events is undertaken by the Committee who try to make it as easy and as much fun as possible for everyone to take part in club activities. Currently there are 9 members on the Committee and they meet regularly to arrange training, social events, educational talks, demonstrations and competitions.

The help of club members is vital to the smooth running of activities. We encourage and acknowledge the help from our members who realise that being part of a club entails helping with the organisation of some activities through the year. Newsletters are emailed directly to members; they detail training, social events and Mercian and Area 18 competitions, in addition to other news and views.

An AGM is held annually to elect the Committee, adopt the audited accounts, and award the trophies. This is the time when pertinent matters can be raised. The AGM is also a social event providing the chance to catch up with friends over refreshments.
