RUS New York is becoming a success thanks to the growing efforts between members, riders, trainers, owners and fans. However, we are a small group trying to get a lot accomplished. We need every person who has passion for the sport to succeed to be involved for it to continue to grow.


No matter how little you can contribute we would like you to be a member of our group. Members do not have to live in New York and can be anybody who wants to see the sport flourish.


​Why Be A Member:


The biggest benefit is networking. You will be included in group emails to keep up to date on race schedules, upcoming meetings, press releases, fundraising and more. As a member you are entitled to voting rights during our annual meeting to elect a Management Committee.


Members are encouraged to attend meetings, help fundraise and participate in discussions. However, membership does not give the power to vote. The only time members get to vote is during the the Group’s Annual General Meeting to elect a Management Committee. Members should express matters with Directors so they can keep these things in mind during voting sessions. Members can sit on committees and help with proposals that will go in front of the Management Committee.


Membership is completely free. All you have to do is keep your contact information current with our group. If you would like to learn more about the group, visit rus-newyork.com
