Club Rules

Below are the Delamere Forest Riding Club Rules.

All horses must present an up to date Flu Vaccination. A copy of this should be sent to in advance of the event to prevent queues checking vaccinations on the day. No horse can be unloaded without the vaccination being checked first. We are operating a 12 month rule. 

Neither Delamere Forest Riding Club, its committee nor any persons acting on its behalf, accept any liability for any accident, loss, damage, injury or illness to any person, animal or property whatsoever from whatever cause. 

A properly fitted, secured hat must be worn at all times when mounted:

  • PAS 015 (1998 or 2011) AND BSI Kitemark
  • VG1 01.040 (2014-12) AND BSI Kitemark
  • ASTM F1163 (2004a or 04a onwards) AND SEI mark
  • SNELL E2001 or 2016 AND Official SNELL label and number
  • AS/NZS 3838 (2006 onwards) AND SAI Global mark

As part of your membership, we require that you fulfil at least two 1/2 day or one full day session helping at an event.

The helpers’ list will be posted on our website.  Members not fulfilling this requirement without a valid reason can be declined future membership or event entry.

The wearing of a body protector and medical armband is recommended for jumping events, individual event schedules will state when this is mandatory (ODE etc)

Stallions are not allowed at any DFRC event. 

No dogs are permitted at Forest Gate Farm and no hay-nets to be tied up outside boxes/trailers. 

All horses must be a minimum of four years old to take part in any DFRC ridden event.

Parking may be limited so please follow directions of the parking steward and park considerately. 

We are very lucky to be able to use excellent facilities, please always leave these in the condition you find them. Please clear up droppings and take them away with you and keep gates closed. Please respect that in some cases this is someone’s home and always be courteous.

If you have any concerns, feedback or suggestions please contact a committee member directly in the first instance.
