We run sessions of riding instruction, at all levels, throughout the year. During the winter, from October until March, we hold Rallies at at various venues. These take place on Saturdays, Sundays and weekday days and evenings. During the summer the instruction is more themed and sessions are held during the evenings incorporating flatwork, jumping and cross country.
We run various competitions throughout the year. We hold a Hunter Trial a year on the Frampton Estate in September every year. This is one of our most successful yearly events. Wherever they are held any profits made during the competitions we run are ploughed back into the club to help fund teams and to purchase essential items of equipment. We have spent thousands of pounds on the cross country course in the form of mobile fences over the past few years and have bought three purchases of Jump for Joy show jumps and a few more and we now have a full set. We also have some Jump for Joy cross country skinnies.
There are both Junior and Senior team competitions where members represent the club at Area level. Frampton Family Riding Club is in Area 9, which includes clubs along the M4 corridor from Bristol to Swindon. There are separate Junior and Senior Team Managers who organise entries and collect fees. The Club aim to sponsor the cost of pre-entries where possible but team participants are asked to pay their Area entry fee, currently the club have a policy that anyone wanting to have a go are able but with the high demand the British Riding Clubs are now placing restrictions on how many teams we can enter for Area competitions, in the future we will be back to “the best” in the team.
Members are encouraged to use the website for information and e mail for contact. We also have an active Facebook page which is available for the club to give members up to the minute information with regards to teams and rallies, and for members to post queries. It is a members only page.
Affiliated Riding Club
FFRC is affiliated to the BHS and because of this we can compete in the various Area and National competitions, we hold an insurance certificate and can take Riding Club Tests etc. It also enables members to have certain BRC discounts.
