Membership 2024

The importance of membership:

When you support Side Saddle Ireland by paying your membership, you are helping us to promote and preserve our sport for future generations. Maintaining these core values will help us to attract more members and to be a strong voice when advocating for side saddle to be included at prestigious horse shows and for dealing with government bodies such as Horse Sport Ireland when we are trying to access support and funding for our activities. By becoming a member, you are joining a collective of ladies who want to maintain the proud and beautiful tradition of Side Saddle in Equestrianism in Ireland. Members are the beating heart of any club and by supporting us you are helping to develop a strong club culture so that we can be an influential voice in continuing to open our sport for generations of ladies to come. Side Saddle Ireland relies heavily on club membership income for the day-to-day running of the club and the money raised is used to cover costs such as insurance, website maintenance, accountants fees, postage and heavily subsidised rosettes which are sent out to all affiliated shows. All of this is supported by people volunteering as club officers to organise everything from sponsorship, preparing accounts, drafting legal documents, helping members to source saddles and other related gear, dealing with show secretaries and organising relevant events. These roles are fulfilled in a volunteering capacity with no monetary reward.

Membership for adults is only €55, while juniors are €30 and must be accompanied by an adult membership for consent purposes (can be a non rider membership also €30). Please join us today and help preserve the proud tradition of Side Saddle in Equestrianism in Ireland! Thank you for supporting our club, have a great season in 2024.
