ALL MEMBERSHIPS ALSO INCUR A COMPULSORY HELPER LEVY (refunded on your helper day).  A day of at least 4 hours (pencilling preferred) at a competition 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.


Our membership year starts on 1 January each year.  Half price membership is available from 1 July each year. 

Moving Forward magazine is now available online from our website and is free for everyone - members and non members.

Day Membership (for people new to dressage or very casual competitors) - $5 per rider - if you are not an EA/AHDC member you can apply for Day Membership twice only during a calendar year.  After that you will need to join AHDC (or EA) to compete.  ***On Competitive comp days, EA only riders in CUR classes riding Elementary or above must be AHDC members (EA rule).  Riders in these classes are exempt from the twice a year Day Membership rule.***

Nominate will recognise that you are not an EA/AHDC member and ask you to renew membership.  Scroll and select "One Day Membership" (not "Senior" or "Youth") in the Membership Category at the top of the page and proceed through.  You will need to nominate a helper day as this is part of the annual membership process (but this doesn't apply to Day Members).  

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
  • 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 $50, payable with your membership.  When you pencil for us for a whole day the $50 will be refunded to you.  Half day pencilling earns you $25.

Members who join for 6 months (after 1 July) will pay $25 helper levies but still receive $50 for an entire day's pencilling. 

Non-members who pencil for us will also received $50 for a full day or $25 for a half day's pencilling.

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 $50 will not be refunded.  The policy is designed to encourage members to assist us in a similar manner to other SA Dressage Clubs.
