T.P.R.C. is one of the largest clubs in the State, with a membership of around 40 riders, ranging in ages from 6-25 years. TPRC is one of ten clubs in the Northern Zone. Our rallies are held on the third Sunday of each month at our home grounds of 'Powranna', near Symmons Plains. Our rallies include a diverse range of activities such as flat, show jumping, cross-country and theory to polo-crosse, campdrafting and games. TPRC encourages all riders to complete efficiency tests, as this is a great learning experience for both horse and rider. 

Members of our club regularly compete at State Championship level, in all disciplines. One of our main events for the year is our Club one day event, which is held at Powranna. We also hold the Northern Schools dressage competition, where over 100 riders, representing all northern schools, compete for the school team shields. Each January we hold our annual Summer Camp, which runs from Monday to Friday, held at the Westbury Show Grounds. The week offers a variety of activites for all riders, as well as an opportunity to camp at the grounds.

We welcome new riders throughout the year. Each rider can attend three trial rallies before joining the club.
