Vernon District Riding Club is open for anyone to join. We believe good horse people come from a variety of backgrounds and diversity keeps a club fresh and healthy!


Get your 2018 VDRC Membership & Waiver here

Early bird memberships are only available until March 31st 2018. Your membership to the VDRC helps us continually improve the facility, offer clinics, put on shows and ensure there is a place for horse sport in the Okanagan valley well into the future.

Our website’s members only section includes minutes from meetings and other items designated to members only. This page provides members with a list of available volunteer tasks, a “honey do” list. When possible, it will include activities you can do at your convenience .

Membership entitles you to use of the riding rings from April until November as well as discounts on Club activities and at local participating businesses. Check out the Friends of the VDRC section for great savings at local businesses. 

Do you live more than 50km from 8408 Aberdeen Road in Coldstream? If you do, then not only are you eligible for reduced rates, but you are exempt from volunteer hours.  How do you know if you are ‘out of town’? Allow Google Maps to be the judge.  50km is approximately Grindrod to the north, Rutland to the south, Falkland to the west and the eastern part of Cherryville to the east.  *Please note;  A printed copy from Google Maps, with your home address to the VDRC, must be submitted with your membership application in order to receive your ‘out of town’ membership.

Drop In Riders are always welcome  Fill out the Drop In Rider Registration Form as well as the appropriate Junior Liability waiver or Senior Liability Waiver, and leave all documents along with your $15.00 payment in the Dropbox outside the Clubhouse door.

*Please note; HCBC membership is required for everyone participating in any and all equestrian activities at the VDRC
