Whitemud Equine Learning Centre Association

Calling All Alumni

These are exciting times at Whitemud Equine Learning Centre as we embark on the redevelopment of our facilities and the realization of our vision of being an unparalleled learning centre supporting equine learning, therapy, recreation, research and sport. We need your help to maintain our records and provide alumni news from the various groups that have rode, worked and loved this site over the years. We would also like to 'spotlight' our alumni in newsletters and on this website. If you were a student, employee, trainer, coach, competitor or visitor, we want to hear from you.
