Hi. The Richland Rider's Club was formed in 1949 and has operated continuously since that time. Members of the club sponsor, organize and host equestrian events for riders in the Tri-Cities (Richland, West Richland, Kennewick, Pasco, Burbank, Benton City) area of Washington State including dressage shows (including the Spring and Fall Dressage shows), jumping shows, schooling shows, fun shows, and clinics. Clinics are normally open to members first; non-members may attend if the clinic does not fill with club members. Some of the club members also offer riding lessons and ground training.
The club owns and operates a nine acre equestrian boarding and riding facility on Van Giesen Street west of highway 240 in Richland, Washington. The facility has two large outdoor lighted arenas for dressage, jumping and western disciplines and has access to a nearby city park where riders can hack out. The barns are owned by individual members; however some of the barn owners sub-lease their barns to other tenants.
A volunteer board of directors operates the club. Membership application (form available on this website) can be made to the board of directors, who normally meet on the first Monday of the month. Meeting locations vary; consult a board member if you wish to attend. Meetings are open to members and to others having business with the club, including member applicants.

HAUL-IN TRAILER PARKING
A new haul-in trailer parking map has been created by the board for members and guests as a guideline of where to park on the property. Please pay special attention to areas and vehicles you cannot block with your vehicles and trailers. Also, if you park on the north end of the property near Van Giesen, do not park parallel to Van Giesen.
