Trail Supporter Fund


The Alberta Equestrian Federation (AEF) Trail Supporter Fund (TSF) was established to provide support for AEF member clubs or businesses who have researched and planned a specific project related to the construction and/or maintenance of an equestrian trail, trailhead, or horse camping site in Alberta for public use. The fund over the past few years has totaled more than $25,000, allocated by the AEF board of directors, and increased annually by individual and corporate contributions.

Trail Supporter funds should be used as “seed funding” to obtain additional funding from other granting agencies. A review committee appointed by AEF will receive, review, and approve specific funding proposals. Submission deadline is May 15 of each year.

Every applicant who is approved to receive money from the Trail Supporter Fund must submit a final report to the AEF.  These reports will be included in Alberta Bits. Additionally, projects that have been supported will be posted on the AEF website, and can be accessed at the following links:
