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 novice 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.
3rd July – Members’ only Dressage & Clear Round
8th July – Dressage & Show Jumping Afternoon
We are still falling foul of the flu jab regulations and losing competitors and placings because of it.
Please check that your flu jab dates are correct right the way back to the two primary injections and yearly booster. Unfortunately vets have made mistakes and competitors have therefore been eliminated. It is the competitors responsibility to ensure they are eligible. We cannot expect our team managers to check every passport.
Always ask us if you are unsure or ring British Riding Clubs – They are very helpful. On our ‘Members Area’ tab under ‘Teams’ there is a flu checker app.
Just a couple of important points. (All the info is on line on the BRC online rule book page 19. )
YOU CANNOT COMPETE WITHIN 7 DAYS OF HAVING A FLU BOOSTER JAB.
So you are fine as long as the jab date is due AFTER the competition. It’s because the flu jab uses a live vaccine
BUT BEWARE. If you have to restart the course You CANNOT compete between the primary and secondary injection.
It’s a minefield don’t get caught out!
