ALBERTA TRAIL RIDING ASSOCIATION / COOKING LAKE SADDLE CLUB 16th ANNUAL STARS TRAIL RIDE Sunday, Sept. 23, 2018 at Ministik Bird Sanctuary Please join us to raise funds for STARS – a valuable service that some horseback riders may find necessary to use during their lifetime, especially in wilderness areas. Bring your horse, pack a lunch, water/juice and experience a 3-4 hour autumn get-away on a guided trail ride through the beautiful Ministik Bird Sanctuary.

To ride: You may: 1) make a donation directly to STARS 2) buy one/more poker hands ($10 each) and take a chance to win cash for drawing a winning hand or 3) choose a combination of both. Riders may even bring in donations from friends or businesses (cheque made out to STARS with correct mailing address) and/or cash to play poker hands for them. To donate if you can’t ride: Donation forms will be available at the ride or may be downloaded from the clubs’ websites: or Receipts will be mailed for income tax purposes.

Let’s have fun and make STARS the big winner. Meet at 10 am to saddle, make your donation or register/draw your first cards. Ride out at 11 am.
