As all not for profit organizations, we are always looking for volunteers to help! This is also a great way for students to earn some community service hours!!
The Club is always looking for help at the shows (setting up courses, jumps, etc.) If you are interested, please contact us and let us know.
To All of Our DHRC members and future members,
Dwyer Hill Riding Club will not be running any shows again this year (2021) due to the continued Covid crisis.
At this point we are a financially stable club and with some patience, will remain so.
The cost to our small club to set up in a Covid friendly environment cannot be justified.
As your President, it is my responsibility to protect the future of our club so it may be enjoyed by horse lovers young and old for many more years.
Sorry for the sad news....
Keep your heads up, get vaccinated, and hopefully next year we will be up and running, celebrating our 25th anniversary in full splendour.
The Dwyer Hill Riding Club, founded in 1995, is an entry-level non-profit organization that promotes good horsemanship and provides mentorship to new and upcoming riders. Horse owners and enthusiasts are encouraged to participate in various equine disciplines in a fun yet safe environment. The Club is managed predominantly by volunteers; however, show expenses are offset through funding from Club members as well from support of local businesses and citizens. We welcome spectators to cheer on riders who range from 4+ years of age to several of our mature members. The shows are all held at the Richmond Fairgrounds (same location as the Richmond Fair). 2020 we are celebrating 25 successful years of horse showing and horse/rider development!
The DHRC Shows are PAC Approved for 2019!.

To All DHRC Members,
Due to the current pandemic situation and in the best interest of our club members, the Dwyer Hill Riding Club executive have made the tough decision to cancel the 2020 show season in its entirety. This has not been a decision we have taken lightly, and have had many discussions but feel this is the right course of action.
The Dwyer Hill Riding Club has spent the last 25 years developing riders and horses from the greenest lead line riders into riders showing on the international show circuits, as well as horses from some of their first courses developing into quality show horses of all types including showmanship, western pleasure, gymkhana as well as various levels in the hunter/jumper rings. Our club is about development at it's core, and it's something we have committed to and will continue to for many years to come.
As disappointed as we are to be missing DHRC's actual 25th anniversary, we will look forward to celebrate our 25th year next year with all of our members and executive, with the same initiatives and same enthusiasm as we approach every season.
Please monitor our website and Facebook page for updates regarding 2020 fund raising efforts and new information regarding the 2021 show season.
We were so happy to see everyone at the 2019 Awards Banquet/AGM. It was nice to see everyone dressed up (although I had to do second looks to recognize everyone). Everyone went all out in their costume and makeup, and looked great. Thank you all for coming out!
I’d also like to thank everyone who brought food, every single dish was delicious. It was the perfect spread for the fall evening. We appreciate your efforts in creating the meals, salads and deserts. Some of the executive needed to be rolled out of the hall after eating!
We would like to congratulate our Champions and Reserve Champions winners for their well earned awards. This was a year of learning and hard work, and we are so happy to see everyone’s progress through the season. The judges in both rings were impressed by the horses, ponies and riders this season. We are extremely proud of the riders in our club.
In addition, we would like to congratulate Val Guilbault for her submission in our logo contest, as it was voted to be DHRC’s logo!
We wouldn’t be anywhere without our 2019 sponsors. Their contributions made the club what it was in 2019. Thank you so much to all of you!
We look forward to the 2020 season, our 25th anniversary! Have a safe and happy winter folks, will keep you updated with all of the information as it happens.
