Join us for our monthly meetings

Club meetings are held at 7pm on the third Thursday of the month.

In 2020 our Club had the same challenges that other organizations had in trying to gather and meet, decide matters of club business, and socialize with our fellow members. Being horse people, and well-accustomed to being outdoors in whatever weather, we held meetings outdoors in socially distanced safety. When we couldn’t be outdoors we’d meet in a member’s indoor arena! Again, being distanced and masked.

Now, in 2022, with the unpredictable weather of winter and spring we have remained on the Zoom platform until we can finally meet in person. See at right for information about our meeting speakers and presentations. We often times have informative and engaging speakers or meet in a venue of interest. We hope you will join us! Soon we will be able to meet in person at our usual location in the Library at the Equine Medical Center.

Most TSRC meetings have an informative presentation. See below for what we’ve had and what is yet to come!

Always something new and interesting at Tri-State Riding Club.  In summer 2020 Stephanie Jennings began offering Working Equitation classes along with her other obstacle and horsemanship lessons.  Working Equitation Lessons

Tri-State puts on one or two fundraisers each year to raise money for the club.  In addition to membership revenue, the money the club raises goes to supplement lessons and clinics for the membership.  Also the club votes to support organizations and other non-profits nominated by the membership.

In years past the club has voted to support rescue groups and therapeutic riding groups and other worthwhile charities.  Also the club provides donations to facilities that support us, such as Camp High Road, which has allowed us hold member trail rides and Judged Pleasure Ride (JPR) on their beautiful property.

Coming Up!

Monthly Tri-State Member Meetings are the third Thursday of the month.
