Welcome to the VWH Riding Club

We are a long established friendly club with members from all around the Cirencester, Malmesbury and Swindon area.

As a club we cater for all levels of rider, from those who just want to have fun with their horse, new combinations starting their training, through to people competing their horses at any level.


We are affiliated to British Riding Clubs, within Area 9, which enables members to compete in qualifiers of all equestrian disciplines and the chance to qualify for national championships at all levels.


We hold regular clinics, residential camps and training days with a variety of instructors to suit all abilities and welcome new members to come and join the fun!

Area 9 Combined Training 

Two VWH teams attended the Area 9 Combined training competition at Rabson Manor kindly hosted by Wessex Gold. With some new members making their debut and some regular VWH members taking new horses, young horses or stepping up a level for the first time it was a mixed but very much enjoyable day with everyone coming home feeling positive having had a good day even if on paper it may not have seemed that way :-) Congratulations to Fiona Russell-Brown who has qualified as an individual for the Championships in the 75cm Prelim section.

New Trainer

Polly Williamson won six gold medals as Junior and young Rider European Championships (as Polly Lyon riding Highland Road and Folly's Last) as well as numerous other wins at International competitions, including placings at both Badminton and Burghley. Polly understands the pressures in preparing well for competitions at all levels. She is a well respected trainer from Pony/Riding Club to International level and this experience and natural empathy underpins her coaching.
