It’s beginning to look a lot like spring in our neck of the woods...!

...No blossoms here yet (like Vancouver); but my tulips are sprouting up big time with the Okanagan sunshine!

Last minute going to press and I just got back from the Quarter Horse Bazaar in Langley (always a good show – lots of activities going on). On my way to that show in Langley, I dropped in to the Kamloops Cowboy Festival; it was really busy and parking was at a premium. I enjoyed seeing many familiar faces (and finally meet e-mail names! Ha!) at BOTH shows.

Saddle Up Magazine Shop OnlineNext up we go to the Mane Event in Red Deer – another fabulous show! In my opinion, THE BEST equine trade show and educational experience in western Canada (including their Chilliwack venue)!

Our new deadline of the 5th of each month (versus the 15th) is slowly catching on, but even I am having a hard time with the adjustment. So please be patient as we go through this ‘quicker/earlier’ deadline. Thank you.

This issue has our annual Fashion Feature inside showing what’s new in riding and casual wear for 2015. And if you are a retail store, you might look at bringing in some of these fine and exciting new lines!

All the best,
