Letter from the President!
I would like to welcome members old and new and non-members to Cliviger Riding Club in 2019!
Cliviger (a small village in the Burnley Area) Riding Club was formed nearly 50 years ago by a group of enthusiastic parents and has grown over the years. We are a grassroots club and cater widely for the younger members and those starting in competition, with showing, working hunter and showjumping! Many of our members have gone on to compete at Royal International Horse Show and Horse of the Year show!
I hope you will come and compete and enjoy this season! Unfortunately our pre-season show blighted by the worst weather of the spring, but thank you to those who came.
Our points show are 14th of April, 12th of May, 9th of June, 14th of July & 8th of September. We do not hold a show in August because it clashes Trawden Agricultural Show (and our holidays!) Our committee organises the horse section at Todmorden Agricultural Show (Held in Cliviger) on the 15th of June Both these shows have a variety of classes to suit all.
We hold varied qualifiers at our shows - see the schedule for details - and we hope to organise some training for the summer. Our committee works hard and I hope you find us a friendly and welcoming club, and we hope to see you soon!
