Glenorchy – apart from its natural beauty – is the undisputed capital of horse tracking in New Zealand. Therefore it wouldn’t be Glenorchy without the Glenorchy Riding Club…
The GYRC is a group of horse enthusiasts who – regardless of their riding skills, experience or discipline – come together to enjoy the hacking, training or events that the area can provide. We organise regular hacks to various stations, farms and some conservation areas (gratefully with the support of local farmers and DOC), often followed by a BBQ. For competitive riders or simply for those who would like to improve their riding skills – there are options of coaching by visiting respected coaches (basic schooling, dressage, show jumping).
The current goal that the club is working on is to establish a decent training base for schooling, jumping or local events.
Junior Glenorchy riders in the past and recently have excelled in events like the Springston Trophy and the club is always keen to encourage budding new riders.
There are irregular meetings as needed, an AGM every year, and the club uses the Facebook platform to keep in touch. The yearly membership is $10 (individuals) and $25 (family).
