Welcome to Rundle Riders Therapeutic Riding Association


Volunteer!

Alberta Equestrian Federation for its generous support that helped RRTRA to send two members to the CanTRA Mentorship Clinic, in April, in Lethbridge in Alberta.  Participation in these clinics builds instructor and volunteer skills, as well as our connections with other CanTRA therapeutic riding programs in Alberta.

We are always preparing for the Rundle Riders Therapeutic Riding program at Camp Chief Hector YMCA for the upcoming season. Rundle Riders Therapeutic Riding program has been very fortunate to facilitate our program in the Spring, Summer and Fall at Camp Chief Hector since 2000! Through the years we have seen some amazing achievements by the participants and we look forward to continuing on with new and returning participant's horsemanship experience and skills. The therapeutic riding allows the participants wonderful physical therapy on the back of a horse to strengthen and stretch muscles. There is also the special bonding of the participants with our horse friends at Camp Chief Hector YMCA that makes this experience so unique and fulfilling for all!

The weather can be very different out at Camp Chief Hector compared to Canmore. We will contact you if we will need to make any adjustments to the lesson if the weather is not good for outdoor lessons. Lessons will go on poor weather days with activities indoors.

We will have 4 lessons this Fall at the cost of $100.00 per participant. Preference will be given to participants able to attend all lessons.

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)

Our Mission

  • 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 always appreciate donations. Thank you in advance.
