Provincial Award Recipients!


Please join the Alberta Equestrian Federation (AEF) in congratulating our Provincial Award Recipients!

Over forty (40) nominations were submitted in five (5) categories. The AEF Awards Committee put in many hours to determine which candidates were most deserving, “it was not an easy decision to make from so many worthy contenders,” said the Chair of the committee.

We are extremely proud to announce and congratulate the 2017 Provincial Award Recipients:
  • Victoria Forbes – Outstanding Instructor/Coach of the Year
  • Fenella Murphy – Sportsmanship Excellence Award
  • Dallyn Shields – Outstanding Athlete/Rider of the Year
  • Jean Smith – Outstanding Volunteer of the Year
  • Patty Carley – Outstanding Contributor of the Year
  • Barron Barn – Outstanding Stable/Facility of the Year
  • Amanda Penner – Above and Beyond Excellence Award

Award recipients will be officially presented with their awards at the annual Stride With Us event in conjunction with the AEF’s Annual General Meeting on March 24, 2018 at the Executive Royal Hotel in Leduc, AB. Please show your support for these deserving individuals and the significant contributions they have made to the equine community by joining us.

Throughout the evening, guests will enjoy informative presentations and a gourmet buffet dinner including cash bar. In addition, a silent auction (value of $9,000 in items) with all proceeds going towards the purchase of an Emergency Livestock Handling Equipment Trailer for the Foothills region. This event is business casual attire and we will be celebrating with our members for AEF’s 40th anniversary! We hope to see you there! Register at the link provided above.
