Welcome to Bullengarook Adult Riding Club
Bullengarook ARC has an enviable reputation amongst HRCAV clubs around the state., we are considered as being one of the most sociable, as well as been successful. In 2010, our club celebrated with Champion Riders Level 2, 3 & 4, taking out three of the five main awards in the HRCAV. We also had the top showjumper in the Association (much to the recipients surprise!), along with several in the Top Ten in varying disciplines. With a membership of around 70 riders, we are located just out of Gisborne, at the Bullengarook Recreation Reserve, Bacchus Marsh Road, Bullengarook, Victoria. (60 kilometres north west of Melbourne.) We are constantly improving the faciliities at the Bullengarook Recreation Reserve, which we share with the Bullengarook Pony Club and also with many outside users. The equestrian facilities are maintained by the Equestrian user groups for the benefit of the whole equestrian community. Just recently, with a joint project between the Bullengarook Recreation Reserve & the Macedon Ranges Shire Council, the ARC & PC installed a large sand arena.
Our club is a member of the Horse Riding Clubs Association of Victoria (HRCAV) which has a club membership of around 200 clubs and over 5000 members, including members in southern New South Wales. The HRCAV hold annual Top Teams Trophy (TTT) Events (equivalent to State Championships) in each discipline of Showing, Dressage, Show Jumping, Horse Trials, Combined Training and Navigation Rides. Clubs compete in teams of four. TTT events are prestigious within the HRCAV with the Horse Trials being one of the largest.
We hold our rallies normally on the second Saturday of the month (but they are actually on the Saturday of the second weekend so occasionally are on the 1st Saturday - just to confuse everyone). Rallies consist of flat & jumping and eating and drinking, with members bringing along yummy food for all to share.
