As a club, we regularly hold flatwork, showjumping and xc clinics which are held throughout the year and offer a good level of training. The club regularly holds events for members and nonmembers. Members have the advantage of entry fees at a reduced cost. See our events page for details of the MRC competitions.
Our members are encouraged to try competing in new disciplines and to compete at the Area level. British Riding Clubs divide the whole of the UK into areas: Malton Riding Club is in Area 4. Members can compete on teams or as individuals at Area 4 competitions if successful get to represent the Area at National Riding Club Championships which has a great atmosphere and a lot of members go down purely for support and a great time is had by all.
We have competed at Lincoln Championships now for several years with many placings. In 2007 Emma Taylor and Downtown Tilly were crowned Individual Junior SJ Champion, 2007 senior team finished 8th team at the Harbury indoor SJ championships, senior team 5th 2008 Aston Le Walls xc championships, senior team 8th 2008 at Off Churchbury ODE Championships where Charlotte Knock took an individual Junior ODE Champion title, senior team 5th Intermediate SJ at Lincoln 09 and Wendy Hoggard took individual Senior Riding test Champion in her arena also finishing 3rd overall at Lincoln in 09.

At the Music champs, Amy Small took second in the Prelim and then took First in the Novice!! As a club each year we attract more and more members and each year we go from strength to strength.
As a club were the only one in the UK in 2008 to be placed in the top 10 in team events at three of the five BRC National Championships that have taken place. Quite an achievement!
