Why Become a Member?
Well, there are many reasons why become a member is a benefit to all of you Canadian Horse breeders and owners.
First of all, the membership fees allow our club (CHARMD) to pay for the booths and the advertisements (including the actual booth graphics, poster board, brochures, etc) at events such as the Mane Event, Spruce Meadows’ Battle of the Breed, and the Saskatchewan Horse Expo.
Our club also pays for the entry and stabling fees for the Battle of the Breeds and Saskatchewan Horse Expo as well as stabling and other fees for the Mane Event. We also have a budget for the Battle’s Team – in terms of team jackets and other expenses incurred with that event. The club uses membership fees to pay for judges and ribbons and such for our annual horse show, as well as the rental of the facility. This keeps our individual members’ entry and class fees extremely low – thus allowing everyone to have the opportunity to go to a bonafide horse show and gain experience for both horse and rider. We have started to offer members clinics throughout the year and the club subsidizes these expenses to keep our members’ entry fees low and thus allowing everyone an opportunity to participate. We have our drill team clinic every spring, as well as horsemanship clinics, intro driving clinics, trail obstacles clinics and hopefully more to come in the future.
Your membership is important to our club and we are constantly needing new members to join, not only to keep our club fresh and new ideas coming in, but to also sustain all the events that our members can take part in, and to provide increased revenue for new events that we will be asked to take part in, or have opportunity to host.
