Membership

ASW_9363.jpg

Members of Rose Bowl Riders have full use of the facility, access to lessons, training and boarding, enrollment in semi-annual vaccination clinics as well as discounts at horse shows and training clinics.

One of the biggest benefits of membership is the amazing trail access. Rose Bowl Riders is centrally located within the Arroyo Seco and adjacent to the Angeles National Forest. There are a variety of beautiful trails for all levels of horse and rider, from easy and comfortable rides through the Arroyo wash and sagebrush to more challenging hills and canyons like Gould Mesa, Cherry Canyon and Brown Mountain. There is something for everyone!

To ride and begin the membership process please complete the following:

BEFORE YOUR FIRST RIDE/LESSON

1. Complete the RBR Waiver for all adults and minor children who will be riding or coming to the facility.

2. If you’re taking a lesson with Myrtle Hill Farm/Katherine Ginzton, also complete their MHF waiver (to be done in person).

3. Complete the Prospective Membership Form and email to us or bring to your first lesson. You have ONE MONTH to enjoy the facility/ride before you must apply and pay dues.

4. Roll up your sleeves: We are all volunteers and it is each member’s (adults & children alike) responsibility to promptly clean up after themselves and their horse or the horse they are riding. ALL manure must be picked up and placed in a muck bucket or bin, rubber mats swept and all debris raked up and thrown away. Strive to leave the facility better than you found it!

IF YOU WANT TO KEEP RIDING/TAKING LESSONS AFTER ONE MONTH

1. Apply for membership!

2. Select your volunteering preference: (Required: 1 hour per month, or 12 per year. Unworked hours are billed at $12.50/hour, annually in November). You may also opt out upfront for $10 per hour.

3. Pay one year’s dues. (Renewals, due January 1st, will be pro-rated based on application date).

STEPS TO FINALIZE YOUR MEMBERSHIP (within 3 months of application date)

1. Attend a new member orientation. Check the calendar for dates and times or email us if you can’t find a time that works for you. Our volunteer membership committee members are flexible and will try to meet when it works for you.

2. Set up an account on Trackitforward to log in your volunteer hours (Your requirement begins from your application date, through November). The club is entirely volunteer-run and members are required to contribute time throughout the year helping at events, serving on committees, participating in our semi-annual work days and contributing to general facility upkeep. You can find out more about volunteering at the Club here. Each membership must record at least 12 hours of approved volunteer service to RBR. Unworked hours will be billed at $12.50/hour.

3. Once you’ve applied, paid your dues and attended an orientation, your membership will be voted on by the Board of Directors at a regular monthly board meeting (usually 2nd Tuesday of the month in the clubhouse). After you are approved you will receive more information, your member gate code, and you may continue to ride, take lessons or otherwise enjoy the facility!
