55 Plus Sponsor

I think it is safe to say summer has finally arrived!

Saddle UpGood luck to all of you riding in competitions, and a safe ride for those that enjoy a good hack out on the trails!

We have a good mix of articles in this issue, and as usual, they are informative and educational. Clubs are busy with their activities and fundraisers – check them out. Maybe you will want to join them!

I haven’t heard a peep from anyone in BC or Alberta hosting a Children’s Wish Trail Ride this year, but Reesor Ranch is hosting one in Maple Creek SK.

I hope those of you 55 and over will be entering the (Equestrian) 55+ BC Games in Kelowna in September. If you are not into competition, or just can’t be bothered… you should definitely consider volunteering – they are looking for helpers!

TownsendWell do enjoy your summer everyone.
See you out and about…
