April 14-15

Hello Everyone,

Hope all got home safe after the snow storm this weekend. Our clinic with Jim Dunn was great, Thank you to Cowboy Up for hosting us again, such a wonderful arena to ride in. We also had tryouts for the Canadian team travelling to Wales and New Zeland this year! We had 6 people try out, Lisa McKenzie, Jazz Graham, Hilary Mclean, Taylor Masse and Shelby Masse. We also welcomed Kathleen Beekman from Britsh Colombia for the clinic and tryout.  Wish everyone good luck and hope you are selected for the team!  Our winter practices have come to a close, and soon we will be starting up our Pairs Series.

Well the weekend is over, back to the grind!

We had a great Clinic with Pola Preugel. Ponies were pushed to the limits this weekend. Racing and pass offs, the ponies took everything in stride for the first real test of the year. New ponies were tested out with only a few minor rider falls! All the riders showed great progress over the weekend! We will be putting our new tricks to the test over the next months to prepare for our Pairs Series! This looks to be a promising year for Alberta Mounted Games! With much more to look forward to! We will be continuing our scheduled practices, adding World team try-outs with Coach Jim Dunn the second week in april.

Many thanks to Pola for putting on a geat clinic! I know everyone had a great time and learned lots! I know one one thing that will stick with me is: "Mounted Games is about keeping your hand in the same spot for the longest amount of time." Applying to placing all the props/ equipment on bins, poles etc. We all learned lots and I know my muscles were pushed to the test! Much needed Advil to get on with work this morning haha..

Hope everyone has a splendid spring break! See everyone very soon!

Alberta MGA thus far 2012


Hi All,

We have been working very hard to get a group going in Western Canada for the past few years. This year so far we are pleased to announce that we have 26 members in Alberta!

This season is looking very promising with a variety of clinics and competitions planned! Canada Mounted Games has a Super Clinic Series running right now, where Pola Preugel will be going to all 3 regions to put on clinics! This past weekend she was in Ontario. The weekend coming up she will be joining us in Alberta, then finally moving on to British Columbia before she ventures back home! We are very excited to have her out! 

We will be having our World Team tryouts for the Alberta riders in April. Those who are selected for Team Canada will have the opportunity to attend the 2012 Worlds in Wales and to the 2013 Worlds in New Zealand! We send good luck out to all riders trying out for their respective country teams as well!

Alberta also has a clinic planned in June with none other than Huw Whitney and Steven Chorley. We have their flights booked and we are waiting not so patiently for them to come out west!

This year we are also putting on a Pairs Series. We've booked 4 dates so far. Hopefully adding more, possibly teams or individuals if we can generate enough interest! Description: http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/images/blank.gif
That’s what is going on in Alberta thus far!
