I just got back from my most favourite trade show… The Mane Event in Chilliwack.

Saddle Up Magazine Shop OnlineWe’ll have a full report in the December issue. Thank you to Ruby and Barb for helping me at the booth again this year – very much appreciated.

Well the show season is winding down, with winter right around the corner, but I am still hoping to get in a few rides before the snow flies. I am a fair-weather rider, so if it’s cold or raining… forget it! Although I do love to ride through, what I call, a ‘virgin snow field’. Great workout for the horse too!

Congratulations to Marion Weisskopff and her horse ‘Rosie’ on making the trek to the American Horsewoman’s Challenge in Oklahoma – the only Canadian to compete in the event… and doing so well! See stories on pages 20-22. We are all so proud of you Marion!

Inside this issue we offer our Christmas Gift Guide on pages 24-29 to get you thinking on those purchases for your two and four-legged loved ones. The December issue will also have a Gift Guide for last minute gift ideas!

As we celebrate our 14th anniversary of publishing Saddle Up, I want to thank everyone who has supported us from the beginning and to the present day. To all the clubs – thank you for your news – it keeps us community-minded. To the trainers and authors, thank you for keeping our readers informed and educated (if not entertained… in some cases). And a very appreciative thank you to our advertisers… since we are a FREE magazine (in print and on-line) we rely on our advertising revenue to print each month (11 issues per year).
