Welcome to Delamere Forest Riding Club

The Club was established in 1983 by riders local to Delamere Forest; a wooded area of 972 hectares which lies between Chester and Northwich in the Cheshire Plain.
Today we remain a small, friendly riding club with approximately 60 members including juniors. Many members are keen dressage riders but we also hold training events, Show Jumping, Combined Training, ODE, Arena Eventing, Horse Camp and a Fun Ride/BBQ.

Please feel free to look around our site and get to know us.
