Welcome to Rundle Riders Therapeutic Riding Association
SEEKING VOLUNTEER COORDINATOR!
Rundle Riders Therapeutic Riding Association is (still) looking for a volunteer coordinator (Casino Chairperson) to help with our casino. The casino is our primary fundraising activity. Funds raised enable us to offer affordable riding and horsemanship programs for our riders, and are being accumulated toward our longer-range goal of a covered riding arena.
The Casino Chairperson is our point of contact with Alberta Gaming & Liquor Commission and will be assisted and supported by the RRTRA Treasurer and members of the RRTRA board. The chairperson will ensure necessary casino application forms and volunteer forms are completed and submitted to AGLC in a timely fashion. S/he will identify and coordinate the RRTRA volunteer teams who will work at the casino. Major tasks will begin in September.
For further information, please contact Sue today.

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.
