Non-members may, by agreement, participate in our events. You must contact the organiser in good time and say you are not a member, you may come to a maximum of two events and then you must join. Two points to note - firstly you will have to pay £5 more than the stated price and you must have your own third party liability insurance cover.
Forms and the appropriate fee must be with the organiser in time to arrange times etc.
It is your responsibility to phone the organiser during the week before the session to find out your time.
Please also note that if you are unable to attend you will still be expected to pay unless we are able to find a replacement.
Current standard riding hats/skull caps (and body protectors for cross-country riding) are compulsory wear for mounted participants at Riding Club events.
If you are interested in attending a non-riding event in this programme, please ring the contact person at least one week in advance to make sure the venue or date has not been changed. If there is a low turnout from members the contact person may have to postpone or cancel the event.
South Lammermuir Riding Club members are most welcome as spectators at all events arranged by the club.
If you are unsure about bringing your horse, please do come along as a spectator and we hope this
will encourage your future participation.
