Welcome to Reining Alberta



Reining Alberta proudly celebrated 25 years of Reining in 2018.  2019 was a great year and we look forward to seeing everyone in 2020.


Proud to provide AQHA reining classes at the Reining Alberta Classic Shows with generous funding in part from the Canadian Quarter Horse Association.  www.cqha.ca



 Reining Alberta would like to express their sincere condolences to the Lauder family for the recent passing of George Lauder. George was a long-time Reining Alberta member and supporter.

Born and raised around horses George had more than a little horse blood running in his veins.  George’s parents and grandparents were active participants in the horse world. George's great grandfather, "Doc Lauder", came west in 1874 as a veterinarian with the Northwest Mounted Police. In 1923 George’s grandfather was the first winner of the now world famous Chuck Wagon Race at the Calgary Stampede and has been inducted into the Canadian Cowboy Hall of Fame.  George was an active supporter of the local horse community participating as a Ring Steward, NRHA Representative, and Scribe at major AQHA and NRHA shows in Alberta.

The Lauder Family is establishing a Reining Alberta Crisis Fund in memory of George, his love for horses and his dedication to supporting the community. The George Lauder Crisis Fund will available members of Reining Alberta when they or their families are in a moment of need.  In lieu of flowers or cards the family ask that contributions be made to the fund -  gf.me/u/xat6ic  or those that wish to send cheques, please make your cheque out to Reining Alberta with Lauder Crisis Fund in the memo line. Mail to: Reining Alberta PO Box 10279 Airdrie AB T4A 0H6

George’s celebration of life will be held Sunday, January 12, 2020 at 2 pm at the Jumping Pound Hall, 44208 Township Road 250 (north of the Jumping Pound turn off on Highway 1).
