Given that the Macedon Ranges is renowned for
its food and wine, it is appropriate that the idea
for the Macedon Ranges Dressage Club was
first touted over a lunch at the Mountain Inn at
Mount Macedon with a group of interested people!
The idea first came from Berni Saunders of
Cyberhorse and Olympian Mary Hanna, then living
at Statene Park at Macedon. The club was then
officially formed and incorporated in 1995 after several
public meetings. Other founding members included
Linda Goller-Moulds, Malcolm Park, Heather Gee,
Beth Whelan, Karan and Karah Grieve, Fiona Cooper,
Sharon and Charlie Bugegja and Lee Howells.
Linda's husband Andrew Moulds was on the steering
committee and he drafted the original constitution.
Since then the club has gone from strength to strength,
always retaining its focus on dressage and providing
the best possible instructors and opportunities to its
Affiliated with both the HRCAV and Equestrian Australia, MRDC holds two competitions a year - an EA competition in February at WPNEC and an HRCAV competition later in the year in the local area. Both competitions serve as major fundraiser's for the club allowing rally lessons to be subsidised by the club throughout the year. This enables members to be able to ride under instructors of a calibre they may not otherwise be able to experience.
It is this commitment to the furtherance of dressage, along with a relaxed, friendly and supportive environment, which is thefoundation of the MRDC.
New members are always welcome. Please direct enquiries to the secretary.
