Mercian Inter-Riding Club League
  • Hereford and District Riding Club are very proud to be part of the Mercian Inter-Riding Club League.
  • The various equestrian events are held at a range of venues based around the M5 and M50 corridor hosted by Clubs in the league and the competitions are broadly aimed at horse and rider combinations who are not competing at the same Area level.
  • The League was first set up in 1986 by Jan Williams of Stourbridge Riding Club with other local clubs to provide team competition at a grassroots level and that ethos remains the same today.
  • There are a variety of competitions throughout the year, covering Dressage, Show Jumping, Style Show Jumping, Hunter Trials, Arena Eventing, Combined Training, Mounted Games and the all important end of year Quiz.
  • Dressage classes starts at Intro and Jumping classes start at 60cm.
  • Mercian competitions are all about having fun by representing your club in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
  • There are no championships to qualify for, but team successes earn points for their club culminating in the annual league award.
