About Us

    Berry Riding Club (BRC Inc.) was formed in 2007 to provide training and competition for riders of all levels, but principally for those novice riders from ‘entry level’ onwards.  

    Right from the beginning the Club’s motto has been “Riding Fun for Everyone”. We believe riding at all levels should be pleasurable, and friendship, mateship and happy smiling faces are encouraged.

    The Club’s activities, which include training clinics and competitions in dressage, show jumping, eventing, working equitation and social riding get-togethers are held at the Club grounds, Berry Equestrian Centre, 50 Schofields Lane, Berry [ see map].

    Competitions & Training

    We provide competitions and training in flatwork (dressage), show jumping, eventing and working equitation. Riders also have the opportunity to attend training with professional coaches, and we encourage the use of our grounds for social riding and coaching. 

    We also host the annual Pink Ribbon Funkhana (hacking and jumping programs) and BRC Interschools Equestrian Championships.

    History of our club

    Berry Riding Club was originally set up by the committee of Worrigee Combined Horse Trials Inc to act as a fund raiser to make good losses caused by cancellation of the ODE. As the organisers lived in Berry where less expensive and more readily available facilities existed, training and competitions were run locally and hence the sub committee adopted a local name to distinguish it from the annual event. When early in 2007, the management of the 2007 Worrigee ODE was not given to the club, its members determined to change the name to BERRY RIDING CLUB. This was passed at a Special General Meeting held on 23rd June 2007.

    We love to receive feedback with suggestions on how to continue providing riding fun and good experiences. 

    Please note - we are not a riding school, and do not provide horses for lessons or instruction. If you wish to go riding and do not have your own horse, we recommend you contact a local riding school. The closest is Regal Riding School at Shoalhaven Heads.
