Welcome to the North
Oxfordshire Riding Club
(NORC) web site.
NORC is affiliated to British Riding Clubs forming part of
Area 5 and has been established since 1980 and now
has over 80 annual members.
The Club offers a varied program throughout the year, including
training clinics in flat work, cross country and show jumping by a
variety of qualified instructors. The clinics have no more than 4
horses in each session and we aim to cater for all levels of ability
from novice to advance. All forthcoming dates and bookings are
provided via the web site.
NORC holds an annual camp over a long weekend usually in July. This
includes training each day in all three disciplines. The camp is
any member at any level and the main aims are to have fun, meet
other club members and to enjoy a weekend away with our horses.
There is also a Dressage League that runs monthly from March to
November. This is an in house competition and although competitive
our aim is to encourage members to come and enjoy competitive
dressage without too much pressure.
The Club also has an Annual Show in August, and this is the main
fundraiser for the Club, it has grown hugely over the years, and has
been going for 31 years. There are many different classes to enter,
and it is open to members and non members. Watch the NORC Annual
Show page on this website for entry forms and more information
nearer the time.
NORC is always looking for members who wish to compete in team
competitions at all levels and disciplines against other Riding
our Area. These competitions can lead to competing at the various
Riding Club National Championships. If you are interested in joining
team please contact Barbara Conner who will be pleased to provide
NORC also holds social events which include pub rides, fun rides,
and meals out.
Some of the benefits NORC offers to their members include discounted
entry fees at our annual show which is held in August, together with
subsidised training clinics. NORC aims to be a friendly club which
welcomes everybody at every level.
Welcome once again
