HISTORY and INFORMATION

WDRC is South Australia's oldest running club in history. WDRC was founded in 1937 and still is a running club today.  WDRC was formally held at West Beach, Adelaide shores but sadly lost there grounds in the year 2013. WDRC is now lucky to be able to hire out Trinity College Equestrain Grounds for there rallies.

WDRC are celebrating 80yrs in 2017 !!  

WDRC is a club that caters for all ages and abilities and has in- house accredited instructors to assist members to increase their riding, horsemanship, knowledge and skills around horses. WDRC is a family friendly club with a social, friendly atmosphere for members and the public. 

WDRC has had and has some very successful show horse, jumping and dressage riders, throughout the years. At the moment we have some very successful juniors under 18 yrs out in the showing world and are competing at a high level. Our young riders are the stars of the future and they improve every ride at our rallies and are always learning something new. WDRC congratulates you in your successful showing careers ! Well done and keep it up :)  

 

 

 

RALLIES!! 

WDRC holds 2 rallies every month !  Our rallies vary from instruction, jumping, trails rides, games day and the list goes on! Our rallies are jam packed with excitement for everyone not just the kids :) 

WDRC rallies are designed to educate but have fun. The rallies we have a system for the kids to make sure they are progressing each time, so they can get better and better with their riding skills but also horseman-ship.  During each rally we always give a rider something new to try and help build their confidence with trying something new ! Our amazing committee and instructors help riders reach the stars and help them reach their personal goals :) 

WDRC works with every individual no matter their skill/ confidence level. For our nervous riders we work hard to help the get through their fears and become a game/ confident rider. We love to have our riders ride around together and work together to build team work confidence.  

 During our rallies we always expect our members to be sensible and use manners around each other to prevent conflict between our members, as our club is a happy, friendly environment:) 

At our rallies we love to have non horsey siblings around! At the moment we have a few non horsey siblings who love to kick the footy at the end when horses are complete. This is a great way for all kids to engage with each other! 

BUT... the main thing is we have FUN !!!! 

OPEN SHOWS !! 

WDRC is able to hold up to 2 open shows a year!! Our open shows cater a Open ring, a Standardbred ring and one of our special rings for the littlies and newbies the L&P Plate ring. Our shows are very fortunate to have some wonderful sponsors that help support our show. WDRC thanks you very much for all your support to our shows !!

The grounds are very nice with a grass area and a sand area. These areas are maintained well. The shed and toilets are a clean area, so germs and dangerous animals are prevented. The grass is kept short in parking and riding area for safety needs. 

 

WDRC hopes to present to the public a well, smooth show with no dramas!!
