LOL there's a riding arena up here. Heated, lighted with stalls inside and it's not far from me. Only problem is since its the only one in the Whitehorse its used a lot and is usually crowded in the winter time.

When I lived in Manitoba we had more riding arenas then anyone knew what to do with. There were 3 within 10miles! And you could also go into Brandon and ride at the keystone center. And now its a 45 min drive to get to an arena that's at least warm enough to take your mitts off lol

Weather. Well its been it's typical can of worms lol. Last week we had a bunch of snow. Then we had a ton of cold wind. Some sun. Been some chilly nights. Think Monday night was -15 or cooler. Our thermometer said -13 at 9:30. Started chopping ice for the critters. Over an inch on the dugout already. I figure all the experts(meterorologists and my big hairy saddle horse that looks like and old mossy grizzly) are right about our up coming winter. Another super cold, super snowy one. Oh well. I love winter anyways.
Any other Saskabushers getting excited for Agribition! I am. :)

Checking in from Ontario!

This year has been a bit of a S***show in terms of weather. Seems my ponies have been in mud from spring thaw until now! I'd prefer the ground to at least freeze so I can actually ride!

I vote Canada buy an island somewhere that all us horsey people can go without bugs and winter!! That exists...RIGHT?!?!

From Quebec!
Where in Qc are you wtwg?

I'm in the Laurentians, north of Montreal.
In the woods surrounded by lands owned by hunters. Deer hunting with guns starts this week end, so trail riding is out of the question. And my little (outdoor) riding arena is frozen solid.

Now all this talk about indoor arenas is making me dream.
Or I'll join Cappaloosa on that warm island anytime.
