The Summerland Dressage Club Inc. is a not for profit organisation which promotes dressage in the Northern Rivers District, New South Wales Australia. Our Club is based at the beautiful Bangalow Showgrounds and has been providing a place for dressage enthusiasts to compete, train and enjoy the sport in the Northern Rivers Region of NSW since 1982. The club's members are made up of both senior and junior riders, those just starting out in dressage and all the way to Grand Prix and professional riders.
Summerland Dressage Club has gone from strength to strength over the years with a membership of over 100 riders with a strong committee keeping the club alive. The club's activities are aimed at riders who wish to participate at all levels of the sport.
