Ettington Park Riding Club:
Ettington Park Riding Club was established in 1979. In the early days the club use to hold instructional rides, as well as pub and picnic rides. It wasn’t long before the club started holding its own shows open to non members. There have always been two shows held every year, one in the spring and one in the autumn. The spring show was moved to the summer after only two years owing to it being cancelled due to heavy snow.
Kineton Riding Club:
Kineton Riding Club was formed in the early 1990’s for riders in the southern area of Warwickshire; its members are from Stratford upon Avon, Wellesbourne, Kineton and surrounding villages.
Kineton Riding club would hold Dressage and Show jumping events during the winter and a Novice Show in the summer. The club also ran instructional rides on Friday evenings during the winter months; alternating between poles and grid, show jumping and flat work.
Ettington park and Kineton Riding club (EPKRC):
In 2008 Ettington Park Riding Club and Kineton Riding Club merged to form a new riding club. EPKRC happened purely for economical reasons. Both clubs having a small membership base and were always going to struggle with costs and as both clubs were based fairly close to each other it made financial and logistic sense to amalgamate the two.
