It’s a full circle cycle .... STARS Air Ambulance flys out to equestrian accidents when we need them most.  In return this fundraiser event exists to raise money for STARS and keep them in the air.  It has also turned into a well loved community event that we all look forward to year after year.


THE RIDE

The ride is broken into small groups of 10-15 riders that are each led by an experienced Wrangler and depart 5min apart.  This works great as we avoid all the tension of having big groups of horses riding out at the same time.


The trail ride will be about 3hrs, with a 30 min stop at a fun-filled half-way destination.  We will have food and live entertainment at the half-way point again.  A limit of 150 riders is now in place, so get your registration in early to avoid missing out.


HIKE & WAGON RIDE

Join in the day with a hike or ride in the wagon to the half-way.  This was an awesome time for those who took part last year.  You don’t have to have a horse to get to be part of all the fun.   The hike was around an hour and a half out to the half-way and half an hour back.  All ages welcome.


The wagon ride shuttled grandmas, grandpas, those with disabilities, young ones & everyone just out to experience the gorgeous views and watch the ride.   Limit of 50 people for the Wagons and 50 people for the Hike.


CALGARY HUNT CLUB

Back for it’s second year the Calgary Hunt Club is going to join the day and offer up a hunter jumping course.  Riley Harvie and the boys have been out setting up natural jumps around the property and there will now be a hunt course to ride as well.  The hunt will take a different route than the trail ride but will end up at the half-way cabin as well.


LOCATION:  Pat Harvie, Homestead Ranch

The Foothills Ride for STARS offers the unique opportunity to ride at the Homestead Ranch in Priddis.  It is a magical place and absolutely perfect in every way.  Fish Creek wanders through the property and there are well cut trails all over the 4800 acres of hills.  This is private land and the only opportunity for public to see it.
