Welcome to Capall Riding Club

Providing you with your quick fix of info on what's happening in Capall Riding Club. Here members can have a more interactive relationship with their Club, and see this as a forum for learning, and enhancing their experience of horse ownership. Founded in 1971, the club is currently celebrating its 41st year of a long established and successful history. Based at Cavallo Farm, on the Crawfordsburn Road, the club is indebted to Lady Perdita Blackwood for the use of these excellent facilities. With a membership of approximately 100, drawn primarily from the North Down area, the club caters for all standards of riding ability as well as having a strong, non-riding contingent, who share an interest in equestrian sports.

The main aims of the club are to:

  • Encourage riding as a sport and recreation
  • Promote good fellowship amongst riders
  • Improve and maintain the standard of riding and horsemanship

 

The club organises activities every Thursday night with the exception of the last Thursday of each month, which is often set aside for training events. As well as that the club also hold regular weekend teaching clinics. The extensive range of activities from competitions to training and educational events include show jumping, dressage, working hunter, and ridden hunter, as well as social evenings.

The highlights of these activities are the winter leagues which run from January to April and cover all these disciplines. As well as competing for the individual leagues, riders also compete for the leading rider category throughout the year.

Annual Inter-club competitions are a highlight of the club year. Capall Riding Club is well represented at events including the Northern Ireland Riding Clubs (NIRC) Show Jumping, Dressage, Equitation Jumping, and Horse Trials Championships. The club has enjoyed regular team and individual success in these fields.
