British Riding Clubs (BRC) have changed the way we join and renew our membership. Membership of the club will now be managed through the Sport80 portal and not through the Flint and Denbigh Riding Club website.
Current members will receive an email from BRC asking you to register. Once you receive the email, you have 24 hours to set up a password. Once you have set yourself up with a password, you will be able to renew your membership and pay your fee. If you are hoping to join the club for the first time, please use this link to access the membership portal:
Enter your email address and hopefully you will be asked which club you want to join etc.
BRC have increased their part of the membership fee by £4. In the past, FDRC has managed to absorb small increases but this is too big a hike up to continue to do this. Therefore, the membership fee for 2024 will be £38 but there is also a £1.50 transaction charge.
If you have any problems or queries about the system please contact:
Ten benefits of joining the Flint and Denbigh Riding Club

2. Members only have to do two help duties
3. Opportunity to pay an additional £50 to opt out of doing a help duty
4. Members get discounted clinics
5. Easy booking of clinics and events through our super website
6. Clinics and events to suit all abilities, both riders and horses
7. Dressage competitions and league
8. Fabulous instructors, and great venues

10. Most importantly a healthy, happy and friendly bunch of members
Only members may take part in our subsidised training clinics, and only members may compete for league points in FDRC dressage competitions.
It is a condition of membership that each member completes a help day during the membership year. A help day consists of a whole day or two clinics.
Membership of the FDRC is only available to those over 18 years old. 2024 membership year runs to 31st December 2024.
Without helpers the club is unable to function, and persistent failure to carry out a help day (i.e. refusing 3 times when requested) will result in suspended membership. For those who genuinely cannot do a help day, a buy-out option is available, at £50. By becoming a member of FDRC you agree to abide by the Rules and Constitution of the Flint And Denbigh Riding Club and agree, when requested to help with the preparation, running or other aspects of club events, this includes non-riding members.
THE COMMITTEE RESERVES THE RIGHT TO TERMINATE THE MEMBERSHIP OF ANY PERSON FAILING TO COMPLY WITH THE ABOVE RULE.
