Welcome to Ellis River Riders. We're a family oriented non-profit organization that's been "Horsing Around Since 1985!" The public is always welcome and admission and parking is free!
We have game shows and open shows. Our open shows are Western and English Pleasure and Equitation. Our game shows have barrels, poles and other types of classes. We have all levels of riding from walk - trot to senior novice. If you join then it is a $20 single member fee or a $25 family member fee. This includes a subscription to the Horses Maine newspaper. The classes are $5 for members or $7 for non-members. Each show you pay a $5 trophy fund fee and a one time charge of $1 for a number for each horse you ride. These are yours from that time on. Please note that proof of Negative Coggins (6 months out of state or 3 years in state) & Rabies (yearly) Certificates are required for horses to enter the showgrounds.
Our grounds consist of the riding ring, practice ring, food booth and pavilion, a 20-stall barn, which is available free of charge on a first come basis. We have water for the horses. We also have overnight camping for shows and seasonal camping for members. There are tons of trails from the grounds and we have several organized trail rides scheduled this summer. If you are a member, you are allowed to use the grounds at any time unless there is a show. For more information, feel free to contact us anytime! We are a great family oriented club and have lots of fun.
