Starting Out? This might be for You

So, you’re just “Starting Out” on your equestrian journey. You want to give it a go … but not sure whether its dressage, jumping, endurance, eventing or para for you? Or perhaps a combination? No need to make your mind up so soon, as our Introductory Membership gives you access to all our 5 disciplines for one flat fee. This is a membership that currently exists, but is not widely known about. So, if you’re a grassroots rider, having easy and simple access to multidisciplinary competitions might just be what you are after. You can do lower-level competition across all 5 disciplines for an all-up annual fee of $54.30 per rider. (No horse registration is required at the levels described in the infographic.) Just sign up via our website and you’ll be ready to go this coming season!  (Note that there are also other options that accompany the introductory membership which allow access to higher levels of competition e.g. graded level 1 dressage, CCN 80 + 95 eventing but they cost a bit more.)
