This year's RV is in Merritt, BC, beautiful BC ranch country with lots of gorgeous trails to explore right from the grounds of the Nicola Valley Rodeo Grounds. The Kamloops Chapter is organizing the trail riding for RV this year and we are looking forward to expanding the trail repretoire from when RV was held in Merritt in 2015.

RV will be action packed once again, with the usual fun acitivies, including the Packing Competition, Dutch Oven Cook Off and Demonstration along with our amazing silent and live auction, Saturday night supper and lots more.

There will be a great selection of clinicians to help you hone your riding and horsemanship skills. This year's clinicians include Sam Sunderland who is coming back again this year, Andonia Reynolds who specializes in Equine First Aid and we will have Steph Laversin and Robert Boros teaching mounted archery, a new and exciting activity for RV. Register for your clinic when you buy your weekend pass to RV.
