*IMPORTANT MEMBERSHIP ANNOUNCEMENT*
In previous years the East Clwyd Riding Club year has run from October 1st to September 30th. However BRC now require all affiliated clubs to fall into line with a membership year from Jan 1st to Dec 31st. As a result, for this year only, we have a special membership offer – if you join after October 1st but before the end of December you will get up to 15 months membership (taking you to the end of 2020) for the price of 12 at £30 per individual. As of January 1st 2020 membership will be increasing to £35 per individual with a pro rata increase for family/lifetime membership.
As a result of the BRC ruling, slight changes to the dressage and show jumping league points system will come into play in the 2019-2020 club year. These will be announced at the AGM on October 24th but will not affect the 2018=2019 league results.

The membership year runs from 1st January to 31st December to tie in with British Riding Clubs but you can join at any time during the year.
Please Note: For a member to be eligible to compete at any BRC Area 20 Championships in any discipline, subscriptions must be received before the end of March that year. Membership shall be available to any person having reached the age of 18. Family membership is restricted to 2 adults (18 years and over) living at the same address. Included in your membership is the BRC Public Liability Insurance which is valid whilst participating in any Riding Club activity. This does not include travelling to and from the event. Details of this and your membership card(s) will be forwarded directly from BRC. It is important you keep your membership card with you when attending BRC events as you may be asked to produce them, especially at area qualifiers and championships. It is a condition of the club that information will be entered onto the club’s computer database. Such information is used solely by the club for administration purposes, however, member’s names, addresses and telephone numbers have to be passed to the BRC office for both affiliation and insurance purposes.
It is a condition of membership that all members attend at least one help sessions per membership year. Without such help the club would cease to function, and there would not be such an extensive programme of events. They are also a good way of meeting fellow members and seeing what goes on ‘behind the scenes’.
ECRC will inform you when you are needed. Choosing dates in advance helps you avoid duties on days when you want to compete. If this does happen to clash it is NOT a good enough excuse to avoid the help session. These will be an average of the last 3 calendar month competitions. Extra help days will be rewarded by a ‘free entry’ voucher into any club dressage or showjumping competition.
ENTRIES FROM MEMBERS WHO FAIL TO FULFIL THEIR HELP DAY MAY BE REFUSED, AND MEMBERSHIP WILL BE SUSPENDED FOR 30 DAYS. THE SUSPENSION WILL BE LIFTED ONCE THE MEMBER HAS CONTACTED THE HELP DAY CO-ORDINATOR SHANNON EDWARDS AND BOOKED ANOTHER DATE. FAILURE TO CARRY OUT THIS RE-BOOKED DATE WILL RESULT IN TERMINATION OF MEMBEMBERSHIP
