January News

Canadian Recreational Horse and Rider Association– There was no discussion about insurance at the annual meeting. The new insurance that Randy talked about at the 5 day ride was just another  option instead of OEF or your farm insurance. The CSC is not mandating that anyone has to subscribe to this new insurance.    Regards  Ron Karr President
