About Us

Moorooduc Saddle Club was founded in 1973 as a family riding club by a group of enthusiastic Moorooduc residents wanting to ride together on their beautiful piece of the Mornington Peninsula.

Operating for more than fifty years from the club grounds in Derril Road - Moorooduc, the club offers formal instruction rallies and trail rides each month, as well as weekends away and camps.  All members enjoy a love of horses and riding and strive to improve their riding and horse management skills in a safe and friendly environment.

The Club became a member of the HRCAV in July 2007 and provides members with the opportunity to compete in events offered throughout Victoria, by member clubs of the HRCAV.
