Welcome to Glenbrae riding club in central Scotland
Glenbrae Riding club was established in 1976 and operates in and around Scotland's Central belt area, and is affiliated to the British Horse Society in the British Riding Club's Area 1.
We are an active club with approximately 120 members and our objective is to encourage riding as a sport and recreation, to promote good fellowship amongst riders and to improve the standard of riding and horsemanship.
We have a busy summer planned this year with lots of different types of events on, hopefully with something to please all of our members. We are running our monthly members Combined Training nights (detailed below), and our regular lessons and team training sessions. In July we have our summer camp at Auchinleck from Friday 17th to Sunday 19th July - more details below - only a few spaces left for the camp so if you are considering it get in touch now.
In addition we are planning a day at the Perth Races on Saturday 22nd August - on the STV Appeal Carnival Party Race Day. On the Sunday 6th of September we are running a Summer Show Jumping and Dressage Show at the Blue Ridge Equestrian Centre open to members and non-members, more details coming soon. We are also planning a social night to raise funds for the club in the form of a Race Night on Friday 2nd October at Stirling Cricket Club. More details on all of these will be emailed, posted on Facebook and updated here on the web.
