The group originally started in Monmouth and took its name from ‘Offa’s Dyke’, which was built to divide England & Wales. It covers the area either side of the Dyke and also Herefordshire and parts of Gloucestershire. Anyone, in any location, can choose to become a member of Offa’s Dyke Group and non members are also welcome at all our locally organised Fun Rides.
We are a very friendly group with members of all ages and levels from beginners to advanced level. We are lucky to have quite a few riders of international experience in our group. They all started as complete beginners and are very willing to pass on their knowledge to us all.
As well as rides, we also organise training and social events throughout the year. (see Rides and Events page for details). Our members can use their trophy card to collect points throughout the season towards the group’s annual rosettes and trophies (see ‘Annual Awards’ for what you can win). These are presented at our end of the season Annual Meeting & Award Evening, which is always great fun and a lovely way to catch up with everyone without a sweaty horse in tow!
