Whenever you see the brand; you know you have a superstar in the
making, just waiting to share a journey of discovery and friendship
with unsurpassed loyalty and a willingness like no other....
you are the proud owner of a "Standardbred Horse"!
The Standardbred Riding Group was formed by a group of Standy owners passionate about promoting the Standardbred Horse and dispelling the misconceptions and prejudices associated with them; they wanted to prove that this wonderful breed was more than just a harness racing horse or a trail riding horse, that with the right education they can do anything. And so the Standardbred Riding Group of Central VIC (SRG Central) was established and became affiliated with the Horse Riding Clubs Association of Victoria (HRCAV).
Soon after the birth of SRG Central came the South Eastern Standardbred Riding group (SESRG). SESRG was founded in 2008 by a group of similarly minded people. You can now find a Standardbred Riding Group in most corners of Victoria with SESRG servicing the South East and Eastern parts of greater Melbourne from Mornington Peninsula through to the Yarra Valley.
As part of our group's activities some of us aim to promote the Standardbred by competing in various competitions including Dressage, Showjumping, Showing, Nav Rides and even Combined Training and Horse Trials!
We are also a fun group of people who get together once a month for instructional rallies with standardbred friendly instructors. Our rallies and activities are a great place for Standy owners to get together and share experiences and help support each other in our equestrian endeavours.
We are a friendly and social club and we welcome members of all ages and riding abilities. The only conditions are that you must ride a pure-bred Standy or a registered part-bred... and you MUST be friendly and ready for a chin wag during lunch!
We aim to keep this a fun and happy club for all members to relax and enjoy and most importantly have a great time with our wonderful Standardbreds and show that these awesome horses can do absolutely anything!
