Unbelievable that summer is almost over – at least if you can call what we had a normal summer.  

Saddle Up 2016

Fires and smoke have caused havoc on people’s lives, their homes, ranches and animals. Shows and events have been cancelled as well. Let’s hope the fall season is long, healthy, wet and green!

September is a busy month for me with fall fairs and events happening every weekend. Hopefully none will be cancelled due to the fires.

And we have our 55+ BC Senior Games coming up as well – the Equestrian portion (Sept. 13-15) is being held in Armstrong! Come out to cheer on the old-timers (wink wink) riding and driving! Did you know there are over 100 ‘equestrian’ entries? That is HUGE! The most ever since they added in ‘equestrian’ to the venue. Good luck to all the competitors!

See you out and about!
Stay safe out there.

Until next month…
