April already? I cannot believe how the months are passing so quickly.

It is almost Spring-like in my neck of the woods, but so many other areas still have winter. You gotta love the Okanagan! (I sure do) Although I am a little envious of the Canadian ‘Arizona bound’ winterites.

Activities and events for the ‘Year of the Horse’ 2014 have started… in March we had the Horse Council BC Equine Education Summit in Richmond, the Kamloops Cowboy Festival, then the Horseman’s Bazaar & Country Fair in Langley. Reports on all are in this issue.

I wish there was more time in each day (or month) to be able to take in all the horse events and activities… there is so much that I would like to do… ride more (priority!), and volunteer when I can. And I do enjoy volunteering. Did I mention clubs only survive through their volunteers?

We have our annual Fashion Feature in this issue – hope you enjoy!

Our next article and ad deadline is April 15th for the May issue. As we are prepping to go to The Mane Event in Red Deer (April 25-27); please try to get everything in on time – would sure appreciate it! Makes my life easier… and maybe I could get in an extra ride or two!

See you out and about…
