Which MHC membership should I purchase?

Competitive Membership:

If you plan on competing during 2022 you will be required to have a competitive MHC membership. An Adult competitive membership is $63.00; a Youth membership is $52.00. The cut-off age between the two is 18. (The systems notes everyone's age as of January 1 - just like a horse!)

Recreation Membership:

If you do not plan on competing in 2022, the MHC Recreation membership offers insurance benefits and other programs, at $41.00 whether Adult or Youth.

Note re Recreation Rider membership: if you compete at all, even at a fun show, or just once a year, a full membership must be purchased. It's an easy on-ine upgrade from Recreation to Competitive, just for the difference in regular cost.

Other Options

Family Memberships are also available for $126 (Competitive) or $82 (Recreation). Can be two adults, or a Youth and an Adult - plus $20 for each additional Youth after the first two members, all living at the same address.

Other options are Golden memberships (Those between 70 and 90 years of age, and who compete) $50.00, and Friends of Horses $27.00 (Non-riders/drivers who take part in horse activities occasionally).
