Benefits of Joining
Becoming a member of HCTG allows you to access subsidised training and reduced entry fees for the competitions and events we run. By providing subsidised rates we aim to make training more accessible to everyone and support our values of encouraging high standards of riding and horse care.
These subsidies are possible due to the fund raising activities we run and the levels are agreed annually depending upon our financial position.
As we are affiliated to the BHS you can also access a host of additional benefits from British Riding Clubs and you can check these out here.
2016 subsidy –
For lessons a general discount of 10% is given and when members have helped on two occasions during the year it increases to 20%.
Team entry fees are also subsidized in the same way for Area competitions. Should members qualify for the National Championships all entry fees and stabling costs, if necessary are paid by the club.
A reduced entry fee is always offered to members for our open competitions and these are detailed on the relevant schedules.
Our club dressage entry fees are offered at highly reduced rates and are exceptional value.
How to claim your discount:
For competitions the entry fee for members will be quoted on the schedule and this is the rate you will pay. You will generally be asked for your membership number on the entry form which will be checked.
For lessons and team entry fees you will need to confirm with the organiser the two events you have helped at. These are within a rolling 12 month period and you can check how you are doing on the helpers list on the ‘Volunteering’ page.
