Hi I am from Calgary. Currently have three QH and one Thoroughbred. Most of my riding is ranch work but I compete in team penning and sorting. I competed in barrel racing for approximately 20 years. I also enjoy riding english, mostly dressage and a bit of jumping.

Hello from Ontario!!! I currently have 1 horse I bought in May a 3 year old Buckskin colt Lionel in training for Reining and will be going to his first show in the end of September and going to New York at the end of October. I am totally counting down the days until next September when I can start riding him. I have a almost 4 year old Border Collie male named Dakoda. I also have 2 1 year old black cats (not related) I got from the shelter named Ripley and Cole. I guess black cats arent popular around here so I had to get both.

I need a 20" and a 22" fleece backed dressage girth. I have a 26" made by Ovation that I really like. Lots of US sites have this but shipping is crazy expensive.

What part of the Yukonare you from? We just got back from a Yukon trip a couple of weeks ago. It is breathtakingly beautiful up there!

Have you tried Apple Saddlery?

Horse Tack Supply Online, Horse Tack Stores, Horse Tack For Sale – One Stop Equine Shop FAQ <-- they offer a flat rate of $25 for shipping to Canada :)

I'm in Whitehorse. :) What parts of the Yukon did you get to see?

We did a motorcycle trip from Edmonton, AB, p the Alaska Hwy to Dawson City. Once in Dawson, we went p the Dempster to Tombstone Park and then across the Top of the World Hwy into Alaska. Unfortunately, we only spent one night in Whitehorse, but we are hoping to go back and spend more time there. Beautiful place! How are the winters?

I'll try Apple. I can live with $25 on a small order.

Also check ebay for UK sellers. I have bought a few things from the UK now and gotten them crazy cheap. A beautiful well made 5pt breast plate for $95 including shipping. Brand new. Shipping is quick and cheap.

Lots of Canadians from the West. I guess that's where the horsies are!

I order regularly online from US endurance stores and shipping usually is around 25$. Avoid any order coming with UPS as they have outrageous custom fees. USPS are usually reasonably priced and trustworthy.
Talking about customs, I don't know how they decide the charges. Just had two orders in last week, around 200$ each. One I had 40$ taxes and the other... none! No clue why.

I'd like to buy in Canada, but they don't offer any endurance stuff.
NBeventer, what UK store did you order from?

We could talk about our horses, experience, training, tips, or just all around discussions!

I myself, reside in Nova Scotia, with two horses and a husband

So lets here it!
LOL! I laughed at your sentence "I myself, reside in Nova Scotia, with two horses and a husband ". Loved the husband part. You're a funny lady.

I reside in Alberta, just outside Calgary with two horses and a husband!
