Welcome to the Kelowna Riding Club!

Congratulations to our 2014 Volunteer of the Year, Mark Prevost! Mark was instrumental in helping out the club with grounds and ring maintenance this summer and fall. Thank you Mark for helping to keep the rings in fabulous condition!

Tatjana Gjesdal Sportsmanship AwardWe also wish to congratulate our 2014 Carol Schellenberg Memorial Sportsmanship Award recipient, Tatjana Gjesdal! Thank you to Lynda Ramsay for presenting this special award to Tatjana. Tatjana exhibits exemplary sportsmanship qualities and is an inspiration and role model to our up and coming young riders. Way to go Tatjana! Tatjana received a plaque and has had her name engraved on the large trophy on display at the clubhouse.

The Volunteer and Sportsmanship Awards were presented at our 2014 AGM on Saturday, November 8, 2014.

With two directors stepping down, two new ones were appointed being Darryl Ramsay and Kate Mincey. Welcome to the Board, Darryl and Kate! We look forward to working with you in 2015!

In addition to the AGM, we also had a potluck, door prizes, year-end awards and silent auction. We had a free membership draw which was won by KRC member Lynne Arbuthnot.

A special appreciation was presented to Dwayne from Prairie Coast Equipment/John Deere for providing the club with a tractor at a very reasonable rate and we look forward to continuing this great relationship in 2015.

Thank you so much to all our sponsors who support us throughout the year and provided us with silent auction items to help our club fundraise. Sponsors include: Prairie Coast Equipment; Diamond H Tack; Greenhawk Kelowna; Kelowna Flightcraft; Day Orchards; Lynne Arbuthnot; Susanne Zimmerman ~ thanks to all!

It was also announced that we have completed the upgrades to the caretaker’s trailer and we welcomed our new caretaker, Joan Gibson. Welcome Joan!

Be sure to join us for an Equestrian Christmas Fair at the clubhouse on Saturday, December 13th! This mainly equestrian-themed fair will include tack boutiques, local crafters and artists as well as a quality used tack and clothing sale. Contact Lindsay Kern-Legroulx for more information.

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!
