Ride Over the Rainbow to AHA Regional Championship

Ride Over the Rainbow, a 50 and 100 mile ride in British Columbia, has been awarded the Region 17 Endurance Championships from AHA!

The championships have historically been held in Manitoba at Myna Cryderman’s rides however, I hope that we can alternate throughout Region 17 to afford everyone a chance to compete in a Regional Championship ride without travelling half way across the country! I am very pleased to promote the excellence of OUR wonderful Arabians in this discipline!

The rides will be held on July 1st, 2007 (yes, a Sunday) at our usual base camp near Merritt, BC. Trail includes 8,900’ of vertical gain over 100 miles on logging roads and cow and game trails. Views are of four separate valleys and mountain ranges. Start and finish lines are at base camp with one ‘out’ vet check for the 100 mile ride.

Contact Barbara Holmes-Balmer at (250)768-8206 edress: or check out Rainbow’s page on the ERABC website page for information as it becomes available!
