I am on Vancouver Island, so even milder than Vancouver but I grew up in Alberta (near Edmonton) so I know those snowy scenes (even kind of miss them, oddly enough!) We have had the most awesome weather here so far (fingers crossed). We will get the monsoons though at some point and it will be miserable., the horses will be soaked and freezing, everythimng will be a mucky mess and the mud will be our worst enemy.

Sunny day out,so decided to saddle up took my 2 yr old i'm just starting for a spin in the snow!!Was a bit ago since I last rode her but she hasn't forgotten stuff Even braved taking her out of the confines of a ring or corral for the first time! Wasn't particularly warm out actually,the sun is deceiving But have to take advantage of the few semi warm days we have & those times of feeling bold,as they don't come around often

Hello hello fellow canucks!! I'm from Quebec, st-Lazare area, I board my mare (non horsey hubby lives with me and my dog ) She's a 4 year old TB, I bought her as a 3 year old, totally green and is very very of my life lol! We are at present doing groundwork to level 1 dressage and I will show her next year.

Of course pics are a must! I have so many that its hard to choose, she loves her bran mash and only gets it when she's VERY good, unfortunately she gets it up to her eyeballs and slathers it all over her wall lmao!




love that property GH, and its only 230k.....if I could get my hubby to move it would certainly be to an equestrian property, there's a beautiful one for sale on the street st. Angelique in my area, but waaaayy out of my price range, 2.5 million I believe....

Welcome to the thread Paige/TBStorm and Fahntasia!
TBStorm; what kind of protective vest do you wear? I'm considering getting one but wonder how hot it gets in summer.

Fahntasia: beautiful mare, really. You live in such a nice equestrian area, lucky you! I rode in the Forestiers trails last summer and stayed at Club Renaissance. Just loved the trails and plan to go back next year.

I'm surprised I didn't see this thread before... Hello my fellow Canadians!
I do not have a horse any longer, but here is the girl I had. She's a 4yr old Nokota mare named Spirit, and is 1 1/2yr old in this picture
