Calgary, AB The Alberta Equestrian Federation (AEF) and Capri Insurance are proud to be hosting the third annual fundraising trail ride on Sunday, September 14, 2014. Named the Wild Rose Trail Ride, the event is organized to create a great community gathering where AEF members and horses can get together for a trail ride. This year’s ride will take place at the Red Lodge Guest Ranch in Bowden, Alberta.
The other and very significant reason for the trail ride is to establish a continuing fund to support therapeutic riding associations. Thank you to Capri Insurance for being the main sponsor of this event and supporting this important cause.
Across the province, the therapeutic associations’
great work in helping adults and children enjoy the beneficial relationship with horses in a safe and positive environment makes them ‘unsung’ heroes in Alberta. Without a doubt, these associations have provided many positive learning and growth opportunities and also provide an important recreational and mental break. These associations have strict guidelines in working with vulnerable people. The well trained horses with quiet dispositions and dedicated and experienced volunteers ensure a positive and enhancing experience. A number of these associations are part of the AEF membership. Each year, 3 AEF member associations benefit from all the funds raised from this event.
The event starts at 10:00 am, includes a brunch and your relaxed trail ride. The trail wranglers will ensure a marvelous adventure in the area and will be guiding riders along the way.
This ride is open to all AEF members (membership available for this event at registration)
, who may bring their own horses or rent a horse from Red Lodge Guest Ranch, the day will be fun and memorable for the whole family. Of course, equestrians may join the AEF at any time and register for the event. Cost for brunch, trail ride per person and their own horse is: $75. A perfect day for memories, fun and to help support the therapeutic riding community.
