Showground:Coton Lane, Whitacre Heath, B46 2HL
The club got its name from the public house of the same name in Nether Whitacre, North Warwickshire.
Back in 1960 a small group of local equestrian enthusiasts got together and ran a show in the field adjacent to the Gate pub. That was over 50 years ago and the club is still going strong.
Our permanent show ground is now in Coton Road, Whitacre Heath (B46 2HL). We have three show rings, lorry/trailer park, spectator areas, toilets and a catering facility on site.
“The Gate” offers show jumping, showing and dressage competitions and runs these throughout the year from March to October. We also offer other social events throughout the year.
We cater for all ages and abilities and do our best to encourage novices and more experienced riders. Members have the opportunity to gain advice and support from qualified judges and officials.
Many competitors and supporters are the children of our members who competed at ‘the Gate’ in previous years. There is always a welcome for faces old and new!
The ground is flat, well-maintained grass surface with disabled facilities and car parking available.
