Berfeley Riding Club

The club aims to organise a number of different rallies throughout the year, these cater for riders of all abilities and groups will be organised accordingly. At all club rallies members are expected to abide by rally etiquette.

To book rallies online please visit our booking page on Equo Events by clicking here or alternatively you can pay by cheque by contacting the relevant rally organiser bleow.

Payment for rallies must be received within one week (preferably less) of booking on to the rally or the place can be given to another member. Please make rally organisers life easier by paying promptly; it is not their responsibility to have to chase members for payment.

Cancellations for rallies must be received at least one week prior to the rally, otherwise payment will still be taken if the place cannot be filled.

In addition helpers are always needed at rallies, if you have some time to spare, please contact the relevant rally organiser to inform them of the days/times you are able to help!
