Well we’re just not sure if we will be having an early Spring as the groundhogs could not agree!

Saddle Up 2016

Let’scross our fingers (outdoor) riding season is around the corner for us in western Canada.

March is the start-up month of activities for horse enthusiasts… locally, in Enderby, there is a Tack Sale, then you always see a happy crowd at the Horseman’s Bazaar in Langley, and the Kamloops Cowboy Festival brings horsey folks in from all over BC and Alberta. I’ll see you there!
