Let's ride breast cancer into the ground!
Hats off to these fabulous companies for their help:
Modern Housewares ~ Hornwood Agencies ~ Permatex Canada Inc ~ Lyman Agencies ~ Weaver Leather ~ Holland Importers ~ TC Transcontinental Printing ~ Wilmar Corporation ~ Husqvarna Canada Corp ~ Cargill Animal Nutrition ~ Kane Veterinary Supplies ~ Ruchlu Manufacturing ~ Signature Products
Now here's the scoop:
The "cost" per day is $50 in breast cancer research pledges for one horse-and-rider. Payment may be by your own personal cheque (in which case you get a tax receipt). However, most riders choose to raise pledges and find that it is not anywhere near as difficult as they thought it might be.
Registration is $100
for each of the weekends you choose to ride.
We provide everything but your sleeping quarters and fuel.
Count on us for:
- breakfast, lunch and dinner for you on Saturday and Sunday
- breakfast and lunch only on holiday Monday
- hay (or cubes) and SafeChoice horse feed for your horse(s)
- a safe place to camp (sleep in anything you'd like) noting that we will likely be in bear country on the Heritage Day weekend.
Both Canada Day and Labour Day rides will involve staying at a rodeo or ag grounds so there will most likely be pens. If there are not, we will have electric fencing that we'll put up for you. You can also use your trailer as a stall (or tie your horse on the outside of your trailer). Each morning, you'll have breakfast and we'll give you a packed lunch for on the trail. At the end of the day, dinner will be served back at the grounds.
If you don't have a trailer and want to come anyway, give us a call. We will see if we can find a trailer with an open stall for you. You'll have to bring a tent and you'll be expected to share the cost of fuel for the rig that is giving you a lift.
On both Saturday and Sunday there will be two guided rides for you to choose from: a shorter one that will be 2-3 hours long and a longer one that will be 5-6 hours in duration. On holiday Monday there will be one ride that will be between 2 and 4 hours in length so everyone has time to drive home for work on Tuesday.
If you are between 12 and 18, you need a parent or guardian with you on the ride and you MUST wear a helmet. (If you're nice and co-operative, and if no one else can do it for you, Jane Hurl, our Trail Boss, will be your temporary guardian.)
Because of insurance liability issues, riders must be at least 12 years old to participate.
It's more than an adventure.
You'll be doing something great!
Through the pledges you raise,
you'll support breast cancer research
happening right here in Alberta.
Three unforgettable weekends!
We're starting something new this year.
No more Longrides.
Starting this year we're doing
three long weekends instead:
Canada Day (July 1,2,3) in Cypress Hills
Heritage Day (August 5,6,7) to be announced
Labour Day (September 2,3,4) in the badlands of Donalda
Come ride with us!
You'll meet new friends, see great country,
have a lot of fun
and possibly win great prizes.
Unlike in previous years,
this year you absolutely MUST
so we know how many we are feeding.
