Winter Use


We move the jumps to their winter quarters at Mill Barton, EX16 8NU, where there is a 50x25m outdoor arena and plenty of hard standing for parking.  They belong to WRC members so please do come and use them whenever you like, but ring me first to let me know you're coming.  There is no charge for this - we just ask you to leave the arena as you found it.

You are more than welcome to bring your own trainer.  Mary Baillie will be teaching here most Thursday afternoons, so do get in touch with her (01884 881323) if you would like to join one of her lessons (shared or private).

Lastly, many thanks, yet again, to Andy and Mary Paxton for allowing us to use their field through the summer and for all the work they do keeping it - and the jumps - in order.  We are privileged to have the use of lovely old turf.

For Members Only

We welcome all members to use the field for lessons, schooling  and competitions .. we are happy if you want to bring your own instructor but NEVER come alone  .. you need to book in either with the lesson organiser, or to use jumps and or arena please book in with Mary Paxton either by phone or text on 07549 698576 or 01884 881548 ( a message can be left on this phone) or by email: mary.paxton@live.co.uk saying which day and the time you want to use the field.. Please try and give a day or twos notice ....Mary will only contact you if the field is unavailable.


The field is available for use by Witheridge Riding Club members only and they ride/compete at their own risk.

The OS grid reference is on entrance gate if needed.


But when using our field can you please follow these simple rules.............


  • Firstly it is a stock farm and there will be sheep in the field on some occasions... so please shut all gates at all times.


  • If in doubt regarding field conditions due to bad weather please ring and check with me on my mobile 07549 698576 even if you have booked in.


  • Please move arena if and when necessary and always leave a schooling arena up with the corners and white boards in place after use.. several members hack up to use the field for schooling and don't want to have to build an arena each time.


  • You can use other flat areas of the field if the arena is getting cut up.. but please take care with the sheep and don't canter all over the place if you want a good canter please use the bridle path (this goes down field next to the schooling field) .. again please keep to it not do not gallop round the fields.


  • If you use any letters please pull them up and put them back under the hedge  .. or the lambs wear them as necklaces.


  • Please do not leave poles in schooling area ... they need to be put back under the hedge as do the fillers.


  • Do not use plastic poles for trot/schooling work ......they break if trodden on so there are some wooden ones in the show jumping area especially for this.


  • All competition organisers please text or email me to let me know your setting up plans as we like to know who is going to be about.


  • Instructors/trainers / lesson organisers ...please confirm number of riders and lessons each week and use other flat area of field if the arena is getting cut up.


  • Move show jumps and arena between lessons if ground getting cut up.


  • Please leave show jumping area tidy any spare poles etc. put back under hedge neatly.


Thanks, Mary Paxton
