Joanne Perlich Ride for Dreams

The 36th annual Joanne Perlich Ride for Dreams is fast approaching.  This year we've scouted out a new location.  We'll be riding the coulees at Matheson Farms, and ending the day with a dinner and dance like never before.  As a friend and supporter of the Lethbridge Therapeutic Riding Association, we’re extending an invitation for you to join us on Saturday, September 21st.


Both riders and non-riders can register to help our fund raising by gathering pledges.  A minimum of $150 in pledges is required to be collected and submitted by adult riders; youth riders (age 17 years or under) must collect a minimum of $25 in pledges.  This provides participation in the ride, evening supper and dance.

Teams can have a maximum of 4 individuals which may be a mix of either riders or non-riders.  Each team must collect and submit a minimum of $500 in pledges, and all team members may participate in the ride, supper and dance. 

If you prefer not to ride but would still like to attend the evening events, tickets are available as follows:

  • Tickets for the supper and dance are $45 each, with children 14 years and under $10 each (starts at 5:30 PM)
  • Tables for 8 are available for $300 each
  • Tickets for the dance only are $20 each (runs from 9:00 to 11:00 PM)
