Calgary Regional Appaloosa Club holds at least 3 trail rides a year.
Mountain Meadows- Waterton, July 2014
Blue Rock- August 2014
As part of the 2013 Club trail rides, a trip into Banff National Park was made on the August long weekend. The group was eight riders, with six packhorses: Jesper Trangeled, Jackie Pratt, Gene Danysk, Murray Van Koughnett, Gina Howard, Jordana Fraser, Brad Strangeland and Jason Edworthy. Due to the extensive flooding in the park, a reconnaissance trip was made by Jesper, Jason and Ramona Matheson into the planned area about 10 days ahead of time and found that many trees had fallen across the trail, and severe washouts had left gaps in the trail, which they worked to fix. On the long weekend, the group rode about 75 km of rough, steep trails, spent 3 nights in a wild area of Banff National Park, climbed 2 of the most beautiful passes in the Park, and honed their horsemanship and mountain skills. read more
