Traralgon & District Adult Riders Club

Affiliated with HRCAV and Australian National Working Equitation

Welcome to TADARC

Traralgon and District Adult Riders Club was formed in the year 2000 and has been through many changes over the years.  TADARC is primarily a HRCAV club with members who compete in Dressage, Showing, Eventing and Showjumping.  In recent years members have also taken an interest in Working Equitation so TADARC has affiliated with Australian National Working Equitation and runs training days and competitions.


The membership year commences on Nov 1st 2016, so renew this month to be sure that your membership and insurance does not expire.  TADARC membership includes both HRCAV and ANWE affiliations, a club for everyone.

Working Equitation and Garrocha clinic - June 2016

Working Equitation 3 Phase Event  - May 8th 2016

Thank you to LVEC for helping us run our second event at their grounds.  Riders braved drizzly wet conditions to compete in dressage, style and speed tests.  Once again we had competitors from as far away as Bairnsdale and Geelong

Sofia Valenca - The Valenca Method

In April we had Sofia Valenca from Portugal giving half day clinics as an introduction to the Valenca Method of horse training.  Participants refined some basic skills in lunging  and in-hand work before progressing to the ridden part of the lessons.

Working Equitation competition - February 7th 2016

Our first Working Equitation Competition was such an exciting day.  Entries were full and it was wonderful to see so many people out giving it a go.  There was such a range of riders, from those who have never competed before at all, to experienced dressage riders and working equitation enthusiasts.
