High Fen Riding Club Affiliated to British Riding Clubs

About Us:

59 years of High Fen RC - 1963 - 2022

Thanks to our sponsors Carriagehouse Insurance Services for their generous support over many years.

The High Fen Riding club is based in the North Essex and South Suffolk area of the South-East of England. We aim to encourage riding both as a sport and for recreation, promoting fellowship amongst our members and working to improve the standard of our horsemanship. We organise training clinics, socials and competitive events at all levels to include those just starting out right up to the very experienced, and we are affiliated to the British Horse Society through British Riding Clubs.

The club has thrived since it was founded in 1963 by Dietmar Ackermann at his home "High Fen" on the Essex/Suffolk border, and its 100+ members, ranging from 18 (minimum age) up to ...., enjoy their love of horse riding for fun and competition at local and even national level.

Over the years, High Fen teams have competed successfully in all disciplines at British Riding Clubs National Championships and have won the Teams Champions in both Dressage and Horse Trials at various times through the years.

In case we're starting to sound a bit high-powered, we want to emphasise that we are a friendly and inclusive club welcoming everyone who  wants to improve their horse riding and management skills, try out new disciplines... and, most of all, have fun enjoying horses!
