High Fen Riding Club Affiliated to British Riding Clubs

About Us:

55 years of High Fen RC - 1963 - 2018

Thanks to our sponsors for their generous support  - please look here for their web site links.

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 instructional meetings, training clinics, lectures, 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.

The club won the British Riding Clubs' Area 14 Chairman's trophy again in 2014, having held it for most of the last 10 years through its enthusiastic and talented members, hard working and dedicated committee, and the support of its trainers and volunteers willing to give their time to the club. Over the years, High Fen teams have competed successfully in all disciplines at the British Riding Clubs National Championships and were the Riding Clubs’ Team Dressage Champions in 2012.

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!

Three High Fen members qualified for the Championships held at Lincoln Show Ground.

Many congratulations to Kelly Greaves and Fentons Flint who qualified in the Pick a Test, (Medium or Adv Medium). Kelly rode Adv Med 91 and WON the class. There was also a rosette for placed riders with both tests combined and Kelly was 10th.

Kim Petley - Waldens Fusilier qualified as an individual in Novice 38 and was 13th, just missing out on a rosette.

Our third member Pami Nixon competed in the veteran riders Prelim test on Charlie and was placed 12th.

Pami and Charlie also qualified in the show jumping and achieved two lovely clear rounds, unfortunately a technical error kept them out of the high placings.

On behalf High Fen, well done for your achievements and thank you for representing High Fen.
