Calgary Western Riders
Calgary Western Riders is dedicated to promoting fun, safety and enjoyment for both horse and rider of all ages and experience levels.
We facilitate the pursuit of equine activities in a fun, family-oriented and relaxed atmosphere; encourage good sportsmanship and good horsemanship and promote the conservation of western principles and preservation of the history of the Club.
The club has been in operation for over 60 years and every year the club is expanding. We currently have over 80 members varying between ages 3-70 that participate in gymkhanas between May and October.
Gymkhanas are held at the SES (Springbank Equestrian Park) which is located directly off Lower Springbank Road in the SW of Calgary. Besides the monthly gymkhanas, CWR hosts sanctioned barrel racing jackpots, cowboy challenge events and participate in Airdrie & Calgary stampede events.
