Our Mission DRHC is a family oriented club for horse enthusiasts of all ages to encourage, stimulate and promote riding, driving, in-hand, learning, or simply enjoying the closeness of their pasture pal(s). We welcome all abilities of the person and horse, and strongly encourage varied horse events.
Our history Founded in 1991, the Dog River Horse Club, or DRHC, has continued to thrive on the enthusiasm of area and non-area horse lovers. We currently have several three-generational families who are active in the club. DRHC's members continue to suggest, host and work on many various family friendly activities throughout each year. Included, but not limited to, trail class challenges, English and Western dressage schooling shows, and the annual three gymkhana circuit held each summer at the Carpenter Park arena. Outside of the arena there are a variety of trail rides (including the annual Tunbridge ride that has riders participating from all over New England and Canada), and riding/driving log program with awards given, see the downloadable form on the forms page. Membership DRHC has a yearly membership fee that goes the calendar year, January 1 through December 31. The current cost is just $15 per year for a single member 18 or over, or $20 per year for the entire immediate family consisting of parent(s) or guardian(s) and children under the age of 18. This gives access to all club events, use of the ring, and a discounted price for the Christmas party dinner.
*Membership fees do not include the registration costs for certain club events such as the gymkhanas, trail challenges, the poker ride, and some clinics.
Our Facebook presence Our facebook page is meant to help our members connect with each other through the sharing of upcoming event information, as well as sharing photos from past events.
