From the Editor

Good luck to everyone dealing with fires in their area, so many of them! And the smoke has been getting worse here in the Okanagan, plus the high temperatures, i.e. 35C to 38C, brutal! Cross our fingers we all get through this summer safely!

I had some fun putting this issue together, with different articles, and some good reading material for everyone. Grab that favourite beverage, sit back, and read on.

So why am I including a story on the reality TV show Farming For Love? Because I found out one of the contestants was one of “our own”… a horsey lady! And Ashleigh Tuhkala tells us about her experience on the show – see my interview with her on page 18.

Check out Back Country Horsemen’s 2023 Raffle on page 5 and 6… some great prizes to win, plus the money raised goes to support the society and all that they do!

Sad to hear about the passing of AQHA Horseman Roy Goodman; Cowboy Roy (as I called him) always made a point of coming over to me at a show or event to say ‘hi’ and tell me a story or two. Condolences to his son Jaret and the family. (see more on page 6)

September is going to be busy… see you out and about!
