AS ALWAYS, these are all outdoor events, we pray for good weather but sometimes Mother Nature has other ideas — for last minute changes, please sign up for updates on our website, or check our Facebook page.
These are free events – unless otherwise noted.
Alberta Equestrian Federation insurance (and proof thereof) is necessary for all events.
You are welcome to bring horses and join us, even using our equipment – BUT if you break it, you are responsible for repairs.
