Located in beautiful Coldstream, BC, the VDRC is a club consisting of members from all ages and equestrian disciplines. The Club provides a place to share a common passion for all aspects of equestrian sport. VDRC has been part of the Vernon and Coldstream Community since 1955, operating as a registered non-profit society.

Since its beginning, VDRC has provided a safe location to ride, learn, teach, and attend organized horse shows and clinics. The Club regularly hosts lectures and equine-related social activities. The VDRC is also home to the Vernon Pony Club, a youth organization that teaches horsemanship and riding in the English disciplines.
