Urmston & District Riding Club 

A Trafford Sport Accredited Club

Welcome to Urmston & District Riding Club

A Club originally founded in 1956 by the late Mr Larry Morrissey with only 7 members, and the Club now has   over 100 members.


The Shows, which are listed, have a total of 6 rings. These for inhand classes, 2 for under saddle classes, a large Working Hunter ring, and Showjumping ring with wireless electronic timing. There is a working in area, which is also used for the Lead Rein Gymkhanas.


Our high  quality rosettes are 4 and 3 tier and go to 6th place (4 for the Gymkhanas). There are 2 Cup/Trophy days, plus throughout the season we have a points system based on a horse and rider combination which also carries cup/trophies. These are presented  at the Annual Presentaion Disco. In total there are over 160 trophies to compete for. The Dog show has also become increasingly popular, these being held on the last cup day in September


The Club Ground is at Southgate which is off Church Rd Urmston/Flixton border.(junction 7, 9, or 10 on the M60). The post Code for the field is M41 9QP. There is plenty of secure parking, toilet facilities, and a caterer is in attendance.


The ground has excellent draining facilities, and we have held shows when others have cancelled. If in doubt a call Jackie Kilcourse on 07914402077 or John Oakes on  0161 748 8996 or 07908 592183 will advise, and a definite decision is made by 7am on the morning of the show.
