Castle Craigs Club

Home » About » Castle Craigs Club

On the ‘Seterday Afoor’ the Common Riding in 1935, a dozen local men, led by Cornet Stuart Paisley, rode to the Castle Craigs and back. Later, at a tea in the Crown Hotel, Mr Walter Robinson proposed forming a club that would give a prize for a horse race on the Common Riding Day.

The first Castle Craigs Club Race was won by Mr Drew Stevenson on ‘Brown Sugar’. Since then, as well as organising all pre-Common Riding Rideouts, the club has dedicated itself to fostering the Common Riding spirit and ‘supporting all appertaining to the Common Riding ceremonial’.
