Berry Riding Club is an ideal club for riders starting out in showjumping and also for the more experienced show jumpers wishing to train over higher heights.
Events held throughout the year include competitions, clear round training days and twilight jumping in the cool of summer evenings.
With plenty of space there’s room to conduct 2 rings of showjumping, an Open Ring (70cm to 120cm) and a Newcomers Ring (X-rails to 70cm).
One show jumping event is held each month using our large variety of fillers and other equipment.

Lending a Hand
Being a very physical sport show jumping needs lots of manpower to make each event run smoothly.
There are several ways riders can help the organisers at each BRC event:
- riders in the lowest heights are asked to arrive early and help set out the course. Over time, this has been perfected to a fine art and often only about 20 minutes is required.
- riders are asked to bring along a friend, parent, partner to help pick up any poles they knock down. By doing this, no one person is left picking up poles all day. A very tiresome and heavy job.
- riders in the higher heights are asked to help pack away the course before going home.
- when not riding riders are asked to help marshall other riders into the ring
- riders can organise lunch and morning tea for judges and volunteers
Any help on the day is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

At Berry Riding Club it is not mandatory for horses to be plaited nor riders to wear jackets at our competitions days or any other show jumping event. However this is not the rule at other clubs and therefore it is responsibility of the rider to know the rules before entering their events.
At all BRC events riders are asked to present themselves and their horse in a neat and tidy manner. Many riders choose to wear our club t-shirt, windcheater or rugby top. Click on the Merchandise for an order form.
