2023 Wild Rose Futurity & Foal Show Information

Rimbey Agrium Center, Rimbey, AB

DATES:   October 13 – 15, 2023

Location:   Rimbey Agrium Center, Rimbey, AB

Directions:    4800 – 47 Street at the Rimbey Rodeo Grounds

Other Events:    In conjunction with the AB Percheron Club Foal Show and Chore Team Competition

Barns/Stalling:   There are 50 – 60 box stalls in an indoor heated building and 15 covered outdoor box stalls.

Cost: $35 per night, bulk shavings are available for our use.  You are more than welcome to bring your own bedding (shavings or straw)


There are 3 big outdoor stock pens 45′ x 45′ (holds 6 horses) $40/night and 6 small outdoor stock pens 20′ x 20′ $20/night.  These are best for the chore horses.

Self penning is welcome to the South of the barn.  Please clean up after yourself.

The WR Futurity is going to try to subsidize the stalling cost as we did last year. The cost will likely be $25 for 1 day, $40 for 2 day stalling. This is a tentative cost depending upon sponsorship.

Tack Stall:   The Futurity will pay for tack stalls.  Please share your tack stalls with others.  We will be tight on indoor stalling so please share tack stalls.

Wash Racks:   There are wash racks available inside the barn area as well as the arena.
