It is with immense gratitude and excitement that we write to you today. We extend our
thanks to everyone who took the time to complete the survey. Your valuable feedback has shed
light on the collective aspirations of our diverse equestrian community.
Based on your input, we have distinguished our top requests as a membership, including but
not limited to:
- More Clinics: We understand the importance of ongoing education and improvement in
our riding disciplines, and share your vision for a wide variety of clinic opportunities
throughout the year.
- More Social Events: Organizing more social gatherings, bringing together riders of all
disciplines, was identified as a top priority, and we share the excitement in creating fun
and engaging events for our membership to grow as a community
- Covered Arena: Many of you expressed the need for a covered arena, which will provide
us with a year-round training and event space, sheltering us from the heat of summer
and snowy winters.
- Perimeter Trail:We have heard your desire for a scenic perimeter trail. This addition
would not only serve as a beautiful riding path but also serve as a great training, warm
up, and cool down area.
- Increased Shade: To ensure the comfort of our spectators, horses, and riders, we hope

However, none of these ambitious plans can come to fruition without the active involvement of
our dedicated members. We encourage you to consider volunteering for one of the various
committees which will be forming in the near future, each of which plays a crucial role in shaping
our club's future. Whether your passion lies in event planning, fundraising, facility management,
or education, there is a place for you to contribute.
Furthermore, we invite those who are passionate about our club's mission to consider a position
on our Board of Directors. Serving on the board is a unique opportunity to drive the direction of
the Kelowna Riding Club and make a lasting impact on our equestrian community.
Together, we can transform our shared vision into a thriving reality. Your commitment, passion,
and involvement are the cornerstones of our success. We hope you will join us November 24th
at our Annual General Meeting. If you're ready to take the next step, please reach out to us or
attend our upcoming AGM to learn more about how you can get involved.
Once again, thank you for your invaluable input and unwavering support. The future of the
Kelowna Riding Club looks brighter than ever, and we are excited to embark on this journey
