*For the Working Membership, minimum meeting attendance and minimum volunteer hours are required to maintain this membership level. Requirements will be reviewed quarterly to see if the individual or household is on track for the year. Volunteer work sheets will be available to fill out at workdays or other events.

Volunteer time may be submitted to the Executive Board for approval (for example, if a member volunteers time for the club that is not necessarily tied directly to a horse show, event or grounds maintenance.)

If the requirements are not being met, the individual or household will not be allowed to renew at the Working Membership level for the upcoming new year. The individual or household may apply again the following year (for Working Membership level).

Supporting Membership level has only the meeting attendance requirement (at 2 meetings per year), however any volunteer hours are welcomed.

ERC strongly believes that the two membership levels that include independent grounds access should have minimum in-person meeting attendance requirements annually. This is so members can know what is going on with their club, any changes, and the current state of the ERC grounds.

The ERC Arena shall not be used for personal gain, i.e. giving or participating in lessons/training for money. Use of the arena lights and water access is reserved for club activities and events. Riders under the age of 17 years old must be accompanied and supervised by a responsible adult.  Members are required to sign a Waiver of Liability form when paying their yearly membership fee. 

 

Regular Meetings are usually on the THIRD weekend of the month.  In warm weather, we meet at the show grounds & in cold weather we meet at Mills River Restaurant.  We encourage you to follow our Facebook page for the latest updates. We also host an Etowah Riding Club facebook group that we welcome community use for equestrian sale ads, community agricultural events, group discussion etc. Please also see our arena use rules under the"Arena Facility" tab.
