First of all, Canada is a BIG place with lots of diversity, both equine-related and otherwise.
I live in the Yukon, which only holds 35,000 people for a territory 6 times the size of New Zealand. It is expensive to live here, and although we have a fairly strong, close-knit horse community, anyone wanting to do serious showing has to head down south. We have a few gymkhanas and very small shows every year. As I said before, it's expensive. That includes hay, land, and horses. In fact, most of our horses and supplies come from outside the territory. We are somewhat "behind the times" when it comes to laws and the way we do things. Still, it is wonderfully beautiful country to ride in. It's cold, but dry, but the summers are gorgeous. And I wouldn't trade it for anything.
