W.R.C. has around 200 members. This seems to be split fairly evenly between juniors and seniors. Many of the senior members began as juniors, and once Wilmslow Riding Club has you in its grasp, it is very difficult to leave! Members come from a large area of the North-West. People are prepared to travel from as far afield as Oldham, the Wirral, north Wales and Stoke on Trent for the facilities and training that we provide. Our club field is in Ashley near Knutsford in Cheshire and gives us an excellent venue for both shows (with six large rings on the go all day) and for our own cross-country course. You may be wondering where on earth Ashley is. Well, if you look just south of Manchester for the M56 and the area underneath the flight path for Manchester Airport, you will find us. Don't worry about the planes. None of the horses seems to be worried about them and even the take off of Concorde caused no disruption (and what a superb sight it was)! So what else do the members get? Training and lots of it. We provide training in most disciplines and if we don't, ask and we will try to arrange it. We are very lucky in having many highly skilled and experienced trainers in the area as well as a number of excellent venues at which to hold the clinics. As an affiliated British Riding Club and a member of the Northern Liaison Group Area 3 our members are given the opportunity to enter Team Competitions, in various disciplines, and to qualify for the British Riding Club National Championships.
