Hello there :)

Im new to this whole horse forum thing so bare with me lol. I figure this is as good as any place to introduce myself, I live smack dab in the middle of BC, enjoying the warm snow free Fall, it sure is nice. Of course now that I said that, I better prepare for 3 feet of snow tomorrow LOL.

I hope everyone else is enjoying our lovely weather :)

Lucky you WTWG! Both for the arena and riding in St-Lazare. That is a horse paradise! I rode the Forestiers trails this summer, what a fantastic trail system. I have many endurance friends that train there.

Welcome NorthernHorse! Welcome Saskgal! I understand about well fed and underworked animals... No doubt I work much harder to keep them than they work for me. But they provide priceless therapy!

It's a default setting for Sask horses I think, especially farm ones, the only times that you get really great riding weather is when you are to busy on the land to be able to ride!

I'm from Nova Scotia, so close to the ocean that lobster is cheaper by the pound than bologna! Yes I am related to a boat captain/owner, and people sell fish door to door (it's good too).

It's not a horsey area though so you make do with you have and buy 90% of everything via internet or have it trucked to you (hay).

Couldn't agree with you more! The trails are A-MAZING. We even have a field owned by eventers that we can "borrow".

I absolutely love love love the area. Lots of property for sale now, if you're interested. Maybe one with an arena? :P

Perhaps we can discuss trading lobster for hay

Sure! Considering the price for lobster every where else seems to be so expensive. I'm sick of lobster by the end of our season, ick.

That`s one of life`s cruel ironies for me as I`m partial to certain seafoods and I probably live as far away from them as is possible (and given that I could never afford the expense it would take me to actually tire of the taste of lobster, if it was even possible).
