Welcome to the Kelowna Riding Club!
The Kelowna Riding Club has just been spruced up at the Spring Cleanup and is ready for the Spring Classic Hunter Jumper Show! Come by for some speed and excitement in show jumping and fantastic entertainment April 23-27!
Members please note: the sprinkler system has been started up for the season. Regular sprinkler times for the season will be: 6:00 am, 12:00 pm and 10:00 pm.
We also wish to note to members that there will be equipment on the grounds April 14th/15th to put up the portable stalls for the Spring Classic show and they will be dismantled on May 8th, so if your horse spooks easily please plan your rides accordingly.
Attention all Dressage Riders: the prizelist is now out for the 2014 Spring Dressage Festival. Check out our Events page or see the Schedule below for the link to the prizelist and entry form.
Hunter Jumper Show Participants: if you are interested in renting a golf cart for the show, please see the poster below. $99+ tax for five days of the show, must be booked by April 19th by calling 1-866-886-6893.
The Kelowna Riding Club wishes to extend a huge thank you to Prairie Coast Equipment for providing us with an awesome lease on an affordable John Deere tractor for the Club! Now Tony can get out there and get our rings in tip top shape in Green & Yellow Style! Prairie Coast even offers an “Equine Discount Program” to support the equine industry – check out the Prairie Coast website for more info.

Did you know the Kelowna Riding Club is available for rent for your horse show, clinic or even non-horsey event? You can rent the entire facility or just one ring, or just the clubhouse. Please see the Facility Rental tab at the top of the page for more info.
The Kelowna Riding Club is a non-profit facility run by volunteers. We welcome all new members, whether you are a rider in any discipline or a horse lover (non-riding memberships are available). We are not a boarding or teaching facility, rather we are a gathering place for equestrian sports. Members are welcome to use the four rings at our 10 acre facility to exercise and train their horses. We also welcome coaches to come and provide lesson programs on site. We hope you will consider becoming a member of this Kelowna institution! The club is officially in its 50s but has been in existence since the early part of last century – perhaps as early as 1898!
