WELCOME TO BOOKHAM RIDING CLUB
Bookham Riding Club is a BHS affiliated riding club based in Leatherhead, Surrey. We aim to offer fun events and training to encourage both novice and experienced riders and their horses.
Events are held throughout the year and include show jumping, dressage, showing, gymkhana, trec and social events. We also run regular jumping and flatwork clinics. Most events are open to all but members benefit from reduced entry fees.
Our events and clinics are held at our club field and at a number of local venues. We regularly send junior and senior teams to compete against other clubs locally and nationally. We are a member of British Riding Clubs Area 11.
The AGM planning is underway with a date of Monday 21st Feb 2022. We will have the AGM first, with virtual access for those who would prefer to dial in, and also in person for those wanting to be social. Location is Fairmile Cobham https://www.chefandbrewer.com/pubs/surrey/fairmile/
We are delighted to have as our guest speaker film maker and actress Caitlin Innes Edwards (Hanna, the Black Mirror, Cormoran Strike, the Leaf Blower). Caitlin has recently finished shooting her new short film, Traveller, which explores the hope and connection created when a woman, travelling in the aftermath of a global disaster, bonds with a loose horse. The horse in the film is played by one of our member’s horses – Tuco, the Appaloosa owned by Adrian Planer. Caitlin will be with us at the AGM with a sneak preview of the film, and to talk about how the film came about, how she got paired up with Spotty, the trials and tribulations of filming with animals, and to answer any questions.
We hope you’ll be able to join us for this really special feature and guest. Unfortunately Spotty isn’t able to attend!
