Becoming a member of the AEC allows for free casual use of the open grounds for general riding and discount rates for hire of facilities. 

The Albany Equestrian Centre hopes that all riders become members of the affiliated Clubs, but if this is ‘not for you’ you can become a ‘Friend of the AEC’, or simply a casual ground user.
