Live Outside the Box


Everything is More Fun When it’s Real!

Dust off those bootsget outside and have some fun with a horse. You could win some great prizes for doing just that. We want you to spend less time in front of the TV and computer and spend more time outside and being active. Less screen time and more horse time equals great prizes, it’s that easy!

This creative program has stirred up a lot of interest and enthusiasm over the years. Alberta Equestrian Federation (AEF) members from all over Alberta aged 7-15 are leaving the TV and computer behind and getting out and spending more time with their horse. Not surprisingly we receive a lot of support from parents too! Young members keep track of how they are spending their time this year from April 1st until September 30th of each year and win great prizes. You don’t even have to own a horse to participate!
