NorthCountry Riders gets ready for 2006

by Meghan Balogh

Calling all horse lovers! The North Country Riders horse club is beginning their 2006 season, and the plans are bigger and better than ever.

Founded in 2005, North Country Riders (NCR) is a riding club based in Parham , Ontario . Last year, NCR hosted two horse shows, two trail rides and a fun day for their members and for horse people throughout the community.

NCR's focus is to provide riders and horses of all ages, disciplines, and riding levels an opportunity to experience a relaxed show environment, trail ride events, and horse fun days.

NCR horse shows seek to incorporate both friendly competition and learning. The judges are fair, yet also an encouragement to inexperienced riders, and willing to give advice for personal improvement. All horse shows are held at the Parham Fairgrounds.


Trail rides are hosted by various club members from all corners of Frontenac County . These events are a great way to enjoy an afternoon with your family and horses, and you can make new friends in the process.

Fun days are non-competitive and offer standard western games and games invented by the club's members. This is a great event for those who don't like the pressure of showing, who want to have some fun with their horse, and who would love to get to know other members.

We hope that you will join us for some friendly competition and fun in the summer of 2006.
