Trail rides

  • Riders wishing to participate are to contact the host before 8:00 pm the Tuesday before the ride.
  • Only confirmed riders will be advised of changes or cancelled rides.
  • For insurance purposes each rider must be an active SATRA member for the current year, and additionally must have a current Alberta Equestrian Federation membership.
  • If you are not a member, and would like to come on a ride, you are allowed to participate on a once-in-a-lifetime basis.  This is to see if you would like what we do.  After that you would be required to become a member.
  • All riders ride at their own risk.  We encourage helmet use.

Arena rentals

  • Riders don’t need to contact the host prior to coming.  However, contact information is provided to inquire about any changes or cancellations (due to weather, etc.).
  • For insurance purposes each rider must be an active SATRA member for the current year, and additionally must have a current Alberta Equestrian Federation membership.
  • We generally start with an hour or so of ground work, then gather for lunch (lunch is not provided so bring your own).  After lunch we ride in the arena until quitting time.
  • There is equipment (pylons, barrels, etc.) at the arena but you are also welcome to bring anything else you would like to use.
  • All riders ride at their own risk.  We encourage helmet use.

Interested in hosting a trail ride?

  • The more trail rides available the better!  If you know a great place to ride consider being a trail ride host.
