AEF programs and services cover a wide range of equestrian activities for beginners to experts in a multitude of disciplines. Services range from the provision of reasonable cost insurance for all members to services in the areas of recreation, sport, education, breeds and industry.
The federation provides provincial support and administration for the National English, Western, and Driving Coach Certification Programs and the English and Western Rider Development programs. It established and supports the Wild Rose competitions program across the province. It is dedicated to the well-being of equines.
The AEF works for the equine and equestrian community in the province. The Board of Directors, elected from the equestrian public, enables the federation to serve its members with a contemporary and dynamic approach. The AEF is poised for growth in membership and increased equestrian participation at all ability levels and in all areas of equine interest.
The AEF is the only equestrian body recognized by Alberta Sport, Recreation, Parks and Wildlife Foundation, thereby having a voice within the Alberta Government.
