Etowah Riding Club
was founded as a nonprofit (501c4) educational club in 1966
. ERC is completely run by volunteers and is dependent on income from sponsorships, hosting horse events , & a very low yearly membership rate ($30 per year) .
The show grounds, arena, & existing buildings are in desperate need of updates after many many years of use for the whole community. We need to raise funds to afford bringing the electrical, arena lighting, speaker system, and the registration booth up to safe standard code.
More specifically, we are looking to rewire the "not up to code" electrical, replace the current half broken halogen arena lights with new working LED Lights, replace broken speakers so the show announcers can be heard on the hill by the horse trailer parking, and repair the very aging registration/show booth. These updated items will help Etowah Riding Club continue to host shows and clinics at affordable rates to the community, host evening horse events, & enable us to maintain a stream of income to continue leasing the ERC arena grounds. ERC takes pride in offering a safe place for riding and equestrian fellowship, across all disciplines, at an affordable rate, even in the midst of a shrinking pool of resources for equestrians. Any donation, will be put to good use in maintaining this long time ERC legacy.
