Club information
Name: Albany Natural Trailriders
  • Description
    Albany Natural Trailriders (ANTs) is a group of riders from Albany and the surrounding areas in the Great South of Western Australia.

    We meet twice a month, once for a Play Day where we learn, share and practice natural horsemanship methods; and once for a Trail Ride through our beautiful countryside.  Our rides could be on the coast through Torbay, Walpole, Albany, or in the hills in the Stirling Ranges or Perongerups.  Wherever there is a horse trail, you'll find we go there!

    Since we are affiliated with ATHRA, we comply with their Code of Conduct, which means that our rides are well managed with an accredited Trail Boss to ensure the safety of horses and riders.

    If you are interested in participating in a Ride or a Play Day, we welcome you along.  You can ride with us without being a member, the only fees that you are required to pay for the first 2 rides is basically for insurance.  On your third ride with us, you are asked to become a member.
  • History
    ANTs was originally formed by a student of Parelli Natural Horsemanship, Tom Maher.  Tom passed away in 2004 and Melanie Price has continued his legacy since then.

    Our group has grown in number and strength to the point where we now have over 20 members, with between 5 and 10 attending each Ride or Play Day.

    Our Committee meets every 2 months to help plan future rides and ensure that everyone is accommodated.

    Julie Robins has been our Newsletter writer for the last few years and does a wonderful job.  If you would like to receive an example of the Newsletter which outlines our activities and includes additional information, please contact us.
