KRC August Update
Keeping you in the loop…
There have been some recent changes at the Kelowna Riding Club this summer and we currently do not have onsite caretakers. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Tony and Christine Jopling for their years of service to our club and wish them well in their future endeavours. They have provided a great service to club members by keeping the grounds in immaculate condition and they will be missed.
We have contracted out the landscaping maintenance and volunteers will be assisting with keeping the rings in shape. Thank you to all who have stepped in to help. Please bear with us as we move through this transition period!
If you are able to help the club out with grounds and clubhouse maintenance for your volunteer hours, please contact Tracey Green, Volunteer Coordinator.
We will keep you apprised of any new developments as they happen. In the meantime, we do have the upcoming John Turner Jumper Clinic, August 30th and 31st. This clinic is now full but you can get your name on a cancellation list and auditors are always welcome! Please contact Lindsay for more information on the clinic.
Happy summer riding ~ stay safe and in the tack ~
Please note: We regret to inform Adult Camp has been cancelled due to lack of participants.
Check out photos of the 2014 Spring Classic Hunter Jumper show here.
Please check out all of our wonderful sponsors on our Sposors/Links page. We wish to extend a huge thank you to all of our sponsors, please support them as they have supported us!
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.
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!
