September was a whirlwind month…

Saddle Up Magazine Shop Online… fall fairs - horse shows – clinics - get winter hay in - get winter wood in - ride my horse more before the snow flies… every weekend there was something! I’ve almost ridden my horse more this month than I have all year (almost… but not true). But, as some of my friends know, I procrastinate and for some reason I choose to work versus play (or not do housework, Greg can vouch for that!), and now I am scrambling and cramming riding time in. I wanted to do more riding this year, but just couldn’t commit as I felt (feel) ‘work’ takes precedence – gotta get the job done! (they say) and I am in total agreement. But I gotta get a (play) life! And it seems this past month… was my play time, whirlwind as it was! Whew!

Next up I am so looking forward to the Mane Event in Chilliwack at the end of October, as I always do. It gives me a bit of a break, believe it or not. Plus I have the help of my buddies Ruby and Barb to help me (thanks gals)! I truly believe this show is one of Canada’s very best ‘equine expos’ available to any horse lover – a show not to be missed. I hope to see you there! Come and introduce yourself at booth #601.

***HOT OFF THE PRESS*** Just in... Vernon BC (including Armstrong) is the location for the 2017 55+ BC Games! Woo Hoo!!

See you out and about!
All the best,


Horse Council of BC
