A grounds key can be purchased for a cost of $50 annually plus a $50 bond. Keys are only available to FULL Members who join between Nov 1st of the current year and Feb 1st of the following year. People joining as full members after this date will have to wait until re-joining the following November to purchase a key. You will also be asked to sign a form outlining the responsibilities of the registered key holder which in short is that you are not allowed to loan your key to another person to use the grounds, even if they are a member. Anyone that loans their key out will be asked to return their key immediately and will lose the right to hold one again.
Riders must be FULL Members of either PHRC or LPC to be allowed to ride on the grounds. Any members letting unauthorised persons on the ground to ride will have their membership terminated.
Full members can use the grounds at any time other than Langwarrin Pony Club rallies, events and camps. (LPC rallies are on the 1st Sunday of the month.)
Other events to watch out for will be published on our FB page. The keys are changed in November each year.
Grounds keys only open the gate and no equipment sheds or amenities. Members using the grounds are required to clean up any manure in the carpark or on the arenas. Either take it home or move it to the base of a tree for fertilizer.
Members are required to wear approved boots and helmets at all times when riding on the grounds and in line with HRCAV regulations. We also require members to wear accredited protective vests when using the grounds for cross country.
This includes rallies, training days and clinics as well as members with keys using the grounds at their leisure.
If you are going to ride on the cross-country please check the area before jumping, unfortunately vandalism is an issue at our grounds so a safety check prior to jumping is required. We have had broken bottles on the take-off or landing of fences, or there may be rubbish or branches down on the tracks. We strongly encourage you not to ride alone.
Instructors may teach at the grounds, but may not be mounted unless they are a Club Member
REMEMBER - DO NOT LEND YOUR KEY TO ANYONE.
Langwarrin Equestrian Recreation Reserve is not a dog leash free zone.
Dogs at our grounds must be restrained at all times regardless of how well behaved your dog is. Dogs must be restrained in a way that they will not affect other horses and riders. No dogs are to be in the clubrooms.
