Our Governance


We are a not-for-profit stable and are led by a Board of parents and riders. Our horses are owned by the club. Our Board of Directors is committed to the highest standard of governance. Our Board is comprised of adult riders and parents of our junior members, all of whom are elected by our membership for a three-year term. Our Board mandate includes guiding the strategic direction of Lancers, developing and implementing club policy, maintaining our financial stability, and ensuring the preservation of our historic building.
