PIARC

Phillip Island Adult Riding Club Inc.

PO Box 737 COWES VIC 3922

Phillip Island Adult Riding Club was formed in 2005 and our club grounds (along with the Phillip Island Pony Club) are based at the Ventnor Recreation Reserve on Phillip Island, Victoria, Australia.

PIARC members have access to the show-jumping arena, menage and open area of the club grounds for general riding and training, along with the opportunity to learn and train with top quality instructors at our monthly rallies (generally the 3rd Saturday of each month), and can also take part in club ‘goings-on’ at our club meetings (the 2nd Wednesday of each month).

PIARC uniform colours are black & pale blue. Branded clothing  and saddle blanket logos can be organised for members. Contact the committee for further information.

Rally costs vary from month to month depending on riding numbers and instructor cost but, as a guide are approximately $80 for private lessons, $30 – $50 for semi-private (2 riders) and around $25 for a shared lesson (4 or more riders). Our membership at present is more slewed toward dressage, however several of our instructors are also jumping specialists and when interest is shown either a gymnastic, poles or jumping session will be included in the rally day.

Rally notifications and information are published on facebook and this website site and final lesson times are published in the week prior.

Our July rally has been CANCELLED in accordance with the COVID-19 lockdown. Stay safe everyone.
_____________________________________________

Our next rally is Saturday 17 July with instructor Bev Shandley. We will be offering flat lessons as well as poles/jumping. Costs to be confirmed.

A bit about Bev: During her eventing career Bev rode at many of Australia’s elite events representing her home state of Victoria. Some of these include Gawler (now Adelaide), Melbourne International, Tasmania and Western Australia.

These days, as well as teaching she spends a lot of her time judging as she is a Federation Equestre Internationale (FEI) 3/4 star eventing judge, the highest achievable level for international eventing judges. At the moment, there are only nine 3/4 star level judges in the whole of Australia.

She has a wealth of knowledge as a dressage judge and is a kind, knowledgeable, encouraging person.
