The Bungendore Riding Club is an adult riding club for riders over the age of 18. Our members include beginners, adults returning to riding and adults who regularly compete in open events.
Usually, the Club meets for training days at the Bungendore Showgrounds on the last Sunday of the month, pending ground availability. We organise qualified local and visiting instructors to instruct members in an informal, fun and relaxed environment. Instruction ranges from basic ground work, lunging and poles, to dressage, jumping, eventing, working equitation, sporting and mounted games, and hacking. Stallions are not permitted at training days. From time to time, we organise local trail rides and trail riding weekends away. The club runs two major competitions each year - a dressage competition, and a one day event or jumping competition, usually in Autumn and Spring. Club members enjoy reduced entry fees to these competitions. There is also an annual combined adult riding club competition known as STARCC, where members compete individually and also as a club. The organisation of this is shared around the clubs involved.
Lunch is generally available on training days or at events, and provides a chance to mingle, although Covid-19 changed this a little. Dress is casual but there are uniform items available for purchase. These are optional, however, if representing the BRC at other events, such as STARCC, the team will be required to turn out in the same attire.
Club membership fees are used to purchase equipment for members to use at training days, pay for EA affiliation / insurance and to subsidise some instructor fees to keep the costs down for our members.
We are an EA affiliated club and the safety of our members and their horses is paramount - we expect all our members to participate in accordance with our Code of Conduct and that of Equestrian Australia.
Honorary LIFE members of BRC are: Harry Lok, Helen Locke, Val Woodward and Anna McAuliffe.
