Best Benefit Ever: Giving Equestrian Aficionados What They Want Most

A new partnership between the Ontario Equestrian Federation and Horse Country Campground offers horse enthusiasts the perfect excuse to get out and ride.

What’s the benefit? After a long, frigid winter, horse lovers are itching to get back in the saddle and enjoy the outdoors once again. The Ontario Equestrian Federation is helping its members—competitive and recreational riders—do that via a new partnership with Horse Country Campground, an equestrian-focused recreation destination in the Ottawa Valley. To get equestrians ready for summertime fun, the program will offer OEF members 10 percent off regular camping rates. And members who complete a short survey about trail riding can enter a contest to win a free weekend at the campground.

Why it works for members: With this new benefit, OEF offers members the chance to spend quality time with the animals they love in a venue well suited to their needs. “For many of our members, the perfect day with their horses is one spent on the trail,” OEF Executive Director Dianne Graham said in a statement. “This new member benefit is just the beginning as we work to meet the needs of our recreational riders. We’re very excited about this partnership and think our members will really enjoy bringing their horses—and their families—to this campground.”

Other perks: OEF also provides exclusive rider/driver programs and discounts on events, magazine subscriptions, and various products, so members can hone their riding skills and stay up to date on the equine industry.
