Distance Rides 101: A Clinic for Volunteers and Riders

Topics: Competitive Trail rules;
Volunteer jobs and how to do them;
Taking horses’ vital signs and estimating weight (hands-on practice); Coming to a ride (what to bring, what to do when you get there, when to arrive, handy gadgets, etc.)

Clinic is FREE, but pre-registration is REQUIRED. Contact Susan Heald ( to confirm you will be coming. We need to be sure we have enough horses for the hands-on portion.

REFRESHMENTS will be served.

Directions to the venue will be sent to you once you confirm your attendance.


Pre-Registrations: In order for a ride to be held there must be a minimum of 6 preregistered, prepaid riders.  In order for the 40 to be held we must have 2 prepaid, preregistered riders

Anyone wishing to pre-pay  can send their payment to MaryAnn Kirk at 838 Alfred Avenue, Winnipeg, MB, R2X 0T6.  She must receive it a week before the ride, or it can be dropped of at anyone of the executive at least  1 week before the ride.  In order for the 40 mile to be held there must  be at least 2 preregistered riders. It is now possible to use e-transfers. The money needs to be sent to Mary Anne, her e-mail is .  Follow the instructions on your  bank’s website. Depending on your institution, there may be a charge for the transfer, but on the other hand, you will save on postage (and possibly on cheque charge). Do not send your entry form electronically, just the money. Bring the form along with you to the ride.
