Whitemud Equine Learning Centre Association

Welcome

Each year at WELCA, 2,200 Edmontonians of all ages discover the joys of equine sports or rekindle their love of horses, and over 600 Edmonton children develop the confidence and self-esteem needed to excel at school, succeed in life, and become leaders in the community. For over a decade, WELCA has made it easier for people with physical and mental health issues to access equine-assisted therapy in the heart of the city, increasing their quality of life and well-being.

Run mostly by volunteers, WELCA is dedicated to improving the lives of Edmontonians through equine-related activities. We plan to contribute even more by making Edmonton a world-class centre for equine research, learning, and therapy.


WELCA’s REDEVELOPMENT

WELCA has an exciting redevelopment planned!

The redevelopment will include two new riding arenas, new barns, classrooms, multi-use areas and indoor bathrooms. Our planned facilities will have both heating and cooling systems, so our students and horses can work together year-round.
