Our membership year now starts on 1 January each year.

We cater for riders of every level - from beginners to FEI and we hold competitions for competitive as well as non-competitive riders and club days.

  • We offer 4 levels of membership - Senior, Junior, Family and Associate (non riders over 18 years of age)
  • Reduced entry fees
  • Competition opportunities - Competitive EA, non-competitive (Participation, Closed Unrestricted) and Closed Restricted (club members only)
  • Educational Opportunities - clinics and combined training days
  • Discounted subscription fees to our State Dressage Magazine "Moving Forward"
  • An opportunity to meet new friends with similar interests
  • Support the Club and the sport of dressage

AHDC is now including a compulsory (and potentially refundable) annual Helper Levy of $40 (or $20 for half price membership), payable with your membership. 

***Due to Covid-19 restrictions we cannot offer half helper days at this stage (unless you are assisting with setting up arenas).  We need to restrict the number of people on the grounds and keep the same people with our judges for a whole day as much as possible so as not to put them at risk.  Members who joined for 6 months and paid $20 helper levies will receive $25 for an entire day's pencilling, as do non-members who pencil for us and are not charged or refunded the helper levy***

If you are unable to assist on your nominated day you may nominate another day.  Members who wish to ride and not assist us for the year are requested to contact the Secretary and advise of such, in which case your $40 will not be refunded and will be set aside in our Sand Arena Fund.  This policy is designed to encourage members to assist us in a similar manner to several other SA dressage clubs.

COMPULSORY HELPER LEVY (refunded on your helper day).  A half day of helping at a competition (as you are only paying 1/2 price) is required for the refund of your Helper Levy, however also refer to the Covid 19 information above.  We require pencillers at all competitions - a great way to help out and learn as you pencil.
