Open Arenas at Fultonvale Outdoor Arena will be held again on a monthly basis on a Friday night. Dates are TBA for 2020 6:30-8:30PM. This is your chance to get your horse out in an arena for some practice if you don’t have a space at home. Open arenas are open to all members including youth members. No need to register, just show up and ride with your friends.
Starting as soon as trails are clear, Ken will let you know when we will be having a weekday ride, the time, date and location. Please let Ken know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining any trail rides so that he can put you on his SAHA Trail riders Contact List. Also if you are planning to ride out and want some company, let Ken know at email@example.com and he will let the other members know.
Rides are weather and trail condition dependent and rides may be to venues like Blackfoot and Ministik and others. Our next weekend SAHA trail ride will be TBA for 2020 Contact Ken at firstname.lastname@example.org to register.

“BIRDING” on Horseback!
Sunday, June 7, 2020 at 10:00 AM at Blackfoot/ Waskehegan
If any SAHA members are interested in “Birding”, I am proposing a trail ride with a focus on identifying birds that we might encounter as we traverse thru the various habitat types. Propose meeting at the Waskehegan Staging site at 10:00 AM. Will ride to Running Dog and anticipate returning to Waskehegan by 4:00 PM. Bring lunch, notepad, camera, spotting scopes, binoculars, birding reference books. Before the ride, each participant will be asked to prepare a list of the bird species that they expect to see. If interested, RSVP to me via email email@example.com.
Beginner Mountain Trail Riding/Campout with Ken Zelt and family
Monday, July 27 to Friday, July 31, 2020
Location: Ya Ha Tinda-Eagle Creek Campground
Have you ever wanted to go to the mountains trail riding but were concerned that you and your horse might not be able to manage? Join the Zelt family to experience trail riding in the beautiful Ya Ha Tinda valley west of Sundre. Ken and Karen will take you out on short and easy rides that most trail riders who have ridden locally can manage. You will be required to bri ng your own horse, equipment, food, camping gear, etc. for you and your horse. Horses are high lined in the camp-site. Camping is on a first-serve basis and we recommend no dogs as they are difficult to manage and control in this campground. If you just want to come and camp and hike along with the riders, that’s ok too. Numbers are limited and the group will probably meet prior to going to discuss the trip and maybe have a practice ride.
More information to follow but if you are interested contact Ken at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign-up
