Recreation & Participation / Ride and Drive
Ride and Drive
The Ride and Drive reward program is open to all AEF members having fun with their horses! It gives riders, drivers, and vaulters an extra incentive to spend more hours in the saddle or behind the breeching, whether for practice, exercise, therapy or just plain fun.
There is no age restriction — it’s for the young and the young at heart! All that’s required is an AEF membership and entry into the Ride and Drive program. Members then start logging their hours of riding and driving in their Ride and Drive logbook. The hours accumulate and continue to build, year over year, even when you re-register. This means you never lose your hours.
Rewards are progressive, starting at 25 hours and ending at 2,000 hours. Time spent riding or driving must be logged in your Ride and Drive logbook and submitted if requested.
How does it work?
The Ride and Drive program is designed to provide an extra incentive to spend more time in the saddle for practice, exercise, or just plain fun! Work at your own pace and count the hours you spend doing what you love. When you reach a certain number of program-level hours, submit them to us and we will send you your rewards!
Submit your hours when you reach a milestone (25, 50, 100, etc.) via:
- Email: [email protected]
- Mail: Alberta Equestrian Federation 120, 251 Midpark Blvd SE, Calgary, AB T2X 1S3
All you have to do is log your hours in your logbook (supplied upon enrollment). Hour slips must be submitted within 12 months of being earned to be eligible for a reward. For example, if you completed 100 hours on January 30, 2023, submit your 100-hour slip before January 30, 2024, to be eligible to receive the 100-hour reward. Then you will receive rewards based on your hours. Submission of slips is only required once a Ride and Drive milestone is reached.
Corresponding prizes are awarded for the slips submitted (e.g. if you logged 100 hours, submit slips for 25, 50, and 100-hour levels to receive prizes for each level).
