July already – and the whacky weather we have been having – rain monsoons!!!

At least that does help with the fire situation (so far!).

Nancy and BobbiThis pandemic has certainly taken its toll on many, but it is nice to hear that the provincial government and health authorities are slowly ‘opening up’ things a bit more for us. Let’s hope over the next weeks and months we can get out there a little more and start to enjoy our summer! Ride your horse, go shopping, eat in a restaurant (yay!!).

I see some events are being planned, with distancing of course, which is great! Horse events may not be offered in the same way for a long time, but at least a few of them can take place, depending on the discipline and structure of classes, etc. If, and when, they increase the ’50 person’ limit, we may be able to have a regular horse show. Time will tell. We have to be patient and follow all recommended guidelines, particularly to remain safe.

Again a reminder to clubs, tell us how your club started. Give us a bit of history – or share some old photos of days gone by at a club activity.

I hope some of you are looking at the monthly entries to the Photo Contest on our Facebook page. Feel free to ‘like’ or comment. Every month is a different theme – do check it out!
