    No voting rights...I think it might be worth the extra $40 to have the opportunity to have your say?:))

    So why would anyone bother with Assoc membership?

    okies my turn to add to the barrage of questions.

    im thinking i should join as i plan to be competing in all sorts from showjumping, eventing, dressage (if nannygoat promises to help me) and hacking etc
    as well as being covered all the time
    id be covered for all that right?

    is it worth paying the extra for senior or just paying the associate?

    I guess for the same reason that people want associate classes and the reason why people who advocate for associate classes for riders who do not want to ride in the official classes and who get upset when official riders ride in associate classes! :)

    LOL- lets not turn this into 'whats the point of associate' *#)

    CWAC...associate membership is fine for you- unless you want to be able to vote...

    But there is always a point...a $350 dollar point :p no argument about that!

    maybe thats the point though.

    Still not sure if I will join, purely because I probably won't get my moneys worth. Will have to reasses in January when I can ride again to see if horse and I both stay sound *#)

    I think a lot of people join as Associates so they can do lower level eventing? Same for Juniors.

    Wow I honestly do not think I can afford to do this, which is really depressing... just to join and register my horse is $640... then to do the twighlight series 2 tests Jan and Feb totals $880. That's assuming the performance card is included with the horse registration and doesn't cost more?

    LOL Shera - the performance card is usually another twenty bucks annually!!

    If it is a new performance card it is $40 or $25 for a renewal.

    I don't think $350 (or $205 for a recreational member) is too bad for 24/7 insurance (personal accident and personal liability). My private health insurance is more than that and if I didn't have that the Medicare levy surcharge is something like $1000 per year.

    Awesome so $920 add the microchipping I've already done and that pushes it to over 1k.... Crazy!

    Welcome to the world of dressage - can you see now why it's posh???? HAH.

    No-one is forcing you... Rego is a one off fee...as is microchipping...And the twilight series is hardly a budget show to start at! why not aim for the SVEP shows which are running at the same time?

    The insurance alone is worth it IMO

    Its only as expensive as you want to make it ;)
