Alberta Outfitter Association News

The Alberta Outfitters Association is pleased to offer a $1000 scholarship to a deserving student enrolled in full time study through a post secondary institution in the province of Alberta.

The AOA is a non-profit organization representing various members operating diverse commercial trail riding outfits within the beautiful province of Alberta. Our roots can be traced directly back to the early cowboys, packers and mountain men of the late 1800’s who helped build access to Alberta and establish her as a world class adventure destination.

The “cowboy spirit” is based on our collective past, present and future and invokes the spirit of courage, adventure, and grit that courses through the veins of every individual who has dedicated themselves to a life lived on their own terms.

The successful applicant will pair existing skills knowledge and values with formal education to demonstrate and to perpetuate the cowboy spirit in Alberta.
