Bling is a volunteer team. Our motto is 'Friendship first, without friendship and trust we ride alone'. We raise funds to cover team costs of new uniforms, camp supplies, team coffee and dinners (that are supplied at the rodeo). Some of our current fundraisers are Neufelds Farms Meats, Skin So Soft, and a pub night Halloween party and encourage additional fundraiser ideas as well.
If you feel that you can make this commitment, we would love to meet you and your horse.
Our open rides for tryouts for the following year are in November/December. Please get in touch with us here.
Don't ride but have something else to offer? Get in touch with us with a brief description of your proposal.
