NEWS FLASH: The Spruston Back Country CTR/Endurance ride on June 24 will now be held at GLENORA staging area on the Cowichan Valley Trail, NOT in Spruston. It was felt that there will be too much "grad" activity for a relaxing ride so likely the Spruston ride site will be used a little later in the year instead. We'll keep you posted. In the meantime, mark your calenders for June 24 and come to THIS LOCATION. There will be camping over on Friday night, vetting 7:30 Saturday morning. Visit the Schedule & Events page to learn more and to access a Registration Form.

The BCCTRA successfully hosted another Introduction to Competitive Trail Riding Workshop (aka "Schooling Ride" for you old timers). Participant received valued classroom instruction from Tammy Mercer-Gervais and then applied the theory to a short mock CTR led by numerous Mentor Riders. Thank you President Tammy and Central/North Island Director Bev Voigt for organizing this valued learning opportunity. Further Thank You's to Bev and her husband Gerd for hosting the Workshop at their Paradise Acres Ranch, including the great lunch and refreshments! Of course, thank you to all the Volunteers for taking the time to serve as Mentor Riders and vet-check personnel to the students and their horses - we could host this event without you! Finally, Thank You to Horse Council BC for the funding support that helps make this event possible. We hope to see this year's students out on the trails!
