About Morrinsville Te Aroha Dressage Group

Learning - Friendship - Success - Dressage

Morrinsville-Te Aroha Dressage Group was formed in 1980 to organise and promote dressage in our area, and is based at the Waihou Recreation Reserve, which we share with several other sporting groups.

Membership is open to anyone interested in the sport, whether competitor or supporter.

Within our members are a number of approachable and knowledgeable dressage riders who can assist with encouraging ‘new to dressage’ competitors. We try very hard to foster a caring and sharing club environment.
