Rundle Riders Therapeutic Riding Association (RRTRA) invites members, riders, and those interested in volunteering with our program to join us at 7:00 pm, Thursday, December 1, at the Alpine Club of Canada clubhouse Heritage Room, 201 Indian Flats Road, Canmore, for a presentation by Pam Asheton, author of the Alberta Backcountry Equestrian One-Day Trail Guide.
Pam is a former riding instructor with the British Horse Society, and lives on a ranch outside of Cochrane. Her writing has appeared in Alberta Country, Canadian Cowboy Country, and Western Horseman. Pam specializes in restarting difficult horses, believing strongly in a centred rider solution. She will be sharing her approach to working with both horse and rider, and the benefits of being centred when working with horses in all aspects.
There will be a short Annual General Meeting preceding Pam's presentation. Light refreshments will be served.

Our Vision for the Future
Rundle Riders is a supportive group offering horsemanship and riding opportunities for individuals with physical, intellectual and/or emotional challenges.
- To create riding opportunities for all people with all abilities in the Bow Valley.
- To facilitate the construction of a covered arena for all-weather riding.
- To become approved by Canadian Therapeutic Riding Association (CanTRA) and North American Riding for the Handicap Association (NARHA).
"The best thing for the inside of a man is the outside of a horse." ~ Written in the book Greek Xenophon (the oldest know book about riding)
- To provide people with all abilities the recreational and therapeutic benefits of horseback riding.
- To increase public understanding of the abilities of people with special needs.
- To encourage safe equine-assisted therapy through the education of volunteers and members.
The Rundle Riders started in the Bow Valley in September 2000. Our program is usually based out of the Camp Chief Hector YMCA located just east of Canmore Alberta. We are working with Cross Zee for this summer. We always appreciate donations. Thank you in advance.
