Whitemud Equine Learning Centre Association
Whitemud Equine Centre occupies 48 acres on the south bank of Edmonton’s River Valley. Originally a farmstead owned by Dr. Frederick Keillor in 1917, the site has operated as an equestrian facility since 1959. The community facility provides Edmontonians access to a variety of equine experiences including the Little Bits Therapeutic Riding programs for persons with disabilities, lesson programs for all ages, equestrian competitions and events, City of Edmonton River Valley day camps and access to the river valley trail system. The new facility replaced an outdated facility that no longer met the needs of the users and did not have a high level of accessibility. Efforts were made to make the new facility accessible to everyone, from beginner to advanced riders, children to adults and those with physical or mental health issues.
