Our first Hummingbird of the year arrived just the other day!

Spring has officially arrived and the show season has begun! I’ll have a report on my trip to Red Deer’s Mane Event in the next issue.

Saddle Up Magazine Shop OnlineWe have two very adventurous rides across Canada happening; one in appreciation of our Veterans (page 3) and the other of a man seeking ‘his gold’ by heading west to BC (page 25).

Good news for racing enthusiasts… Century Downs is now OPEN! See page 14 for that story.

Does your horse have Sweet Itch? Mine does – and there is a new product on the market that I am trying out – see page 21 for more details. I’ll keep you posted on my horse’s progress.

Looking for something different to do for yourself or your visiting family or guests? Take a look at our “Getaway” feature on pages 26-31.

Enjoy the ride (or drive)!

All the best,


Horse Council of BC
