About this event

Join EBLES in 2022 and support the only organization representing horse riders in Elk/Beaver Lake Park. Your membership is good until Dec 31, 2022.

We are sorry to have to report that the ring remediation in the fall of 2020 did not turn out well. The hog fuel was overly decomposed and the ring footing is now too soft, particularly in the corners, and small and large rocks from the base have been stirred up. Therefore, the hog fuel ring has been closed and the footing needs to be completely replaced. The sand ring is still open.

It is estimated that replacing the footing with new hog fuel will cost $40,000 and last approximately five years. Converting the ring to sand would cost an estimated $80,000 and last indefinitely with maintenance.

A major fundraising effort will have to be undertaken as EBLES does not currently have the money to completely replace the footing. Membership dues and ring rentals have only covered annual expenses and maintenance. EBLES will be applying for Horse Council of BC, BC Community Gaming (Capital Projects), Telus, Sidney Lions Club and Kiwanis Victoria Foundation grants.

Your membership matters.

A large membership puts us in a stronger position to apply for grants, and gives us a stronger voice for access in the park.

The recent donations from members and supporters that have been received recently are greatly appreciated. Any ideas or leads for fundraising are welcome.
