Mercian Teams

The Mercian Group started in 1984, when Jan Williams of Wolverley (then Stourbridge) Riding Club invited representatives from Affiliated Riding Clubs in an area roughly defined as being `along the M5` to an informal meeting at which the group was formed. Current clubs at the moment currently make up The Mercian Group;  Bewdley Bridle Club, Bromsgrove, Bromyard, Cropthorne and Evesham Vale, Malvern Hills, Shropshire South, Vale of Arrow, Worcester, Wyvern and Frampton Family RC.

The aims were; to exchange schedules and information, to foster inter-club competition at a level below 'Official Riding Club Area Level' to cater for the weekend riding only members.  Whilst all these original aims still apply, the inter-club competition aspect became paramount. Each of the participating Clubs hosts one team competition every year, and as many disciplines as possible are covered, with the season culminating in a quiz. These are all team classes, no individuals, as it is much more fun to share the thrills and spills involved in representing your Club!

Each team taking part earns one point, with additional points being awarded for first to sixth places (12 for first, 10 for second and so on) and points are even available for attending Mercian committee meetings.
