Well of course it snowed in Red Deer while I was at the Mane Event – and had mini blizzards on my way home. Great show though – as always!

Saddle Up 2016

Mark McMillan has been writing the Cariboo Chatter column in Saddle Up for ten years now, and this will be his last column – as he and wife, Kathy, have many things on the go, and just don’t have as much spare time anymore. Thank you Mark for your years of keeping us informed, and entertaining us with your ‘What’s This?’ each month.
