West Oxfordshire Riding Club

Welcome to the WORC Official Website

West Oxfordshire Riding Club is affiliated to the British Horse Society. Founded in 1975, it covers Witney and the surrounding area of  Oxfordshire. Our aim is to inspire our members to improve the standard of their horse riding and horsemanship. We hope to acheive this through encouraging riding as a sport and recreational activity, promoting good fellowship amongst riders whilst improving and maintaining the standards of riding and horsemanship.


We offer our members subsidised training covering all aspects of dressage and flatwork, show jumping and cross country riding using a variety of instructors who hold either group or individual training sessions at a selection of local venues in and around the Witney area.


Members receive a Membership Card and a monthly newsletter, which contains full details of forthcoming training, social events and competitions. There is the option to buy club clothing - polo shirts, sweat shirts, caps and the like which look very smart at rallies and team events. 

We run low key competitions, such as a our Dressage Series with classes from restricted Prelim to Medium,  Show Jumping and regular Arena Showing. As we are affiliated to the BHS we are also eligible to enter their Inter-Riding Club competitions for teams and individuals, which culminate in National Championships in each discipline for those who qualify.


Throughout the year we run a points system for horses and ponies at all competitions. These points are transferred onto a league table and culminate with a prize giving ceremony at our AGM held in November or December each year. Prizes are awarded for the dressage series, show jumping and cross country performances, as well as most improved senior and junior riders, best team spirit and overall 'Horse of the Year' and 'Pony of the Year'.


All we ask in return is that members are prepared to ‘muck-in’ and help at some of the events, all of which take a lot of manpower to be successful.
