Live Outside the Box

Everything is More Fun When it’s Real!

Are you ready to slap on your boots, secure your helmet, and head outside to have fun with your horse? You could win some wicked prizes for doing just that! We want you to spend less time in front of the TV, computer, and other electronic devices, and spend more time outside being active and healthy. Less screen time and more horse time equals great rewards; it’s just that easy!

This creative program, made available in partnership with CapriCMW Insurance, has stirred up a lot of interest and enthusiasm over the years. Alberta Equestrian Federation (AEF) members from all over Alberta aged 7 to 15 are leaving the electronics behind, getting out and spending more time with their horse. Not surprisingly we receive support from parents too!

Youth members keep track of how they spend their time April 1 until September 30 each year and can win great prizes. You don’t even have to own a horse to participate, and best of all it’s FREE to join in on the fun!

How to Participate:

Youth members aged 7 to 15 years old select the ‘Live Outside the Box’ option on their membership form or through the online membership walk-through process.
A confirmation email will be sent to all those who select this option during their membership renewal.  A followup email to confirm program enrollment email will be sent closer to the program start date.
Upon confirmation of enrollment being received, each confirmed participant will be mailed a log book and custom program zipper pull (mid to late March)
Track your daily hours of activity and healthy servings in the log book provided to you for each month (April – September). At the end of each month log into your AEF profile online and submit your totals for the month.

Registration closes March 1.
