Cool Hi! Introducing myself

HELLO everyone :)
My name is Laura and I'm from Canada... I'm origionally from Ontario but I moved to Calgary, Alberta last summer and I'm currently working at Spruce Meadows in one of the offices (www.sprucemeadows.com). I go to Queen's University in Ontario, so I'm only really in Alberta during the summer.

I found this website when I was searching google for a horse to summer lease... Looked around for a bit and I thought it looked fun, so I joined!
I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone!
Is anyone else here from Calgary?

Laura

Hi, welcome to the forum!

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.

Hi! I'm from Calgary! Just joined today - lucky you getting to work at Spruce Meadows! Did you find a horse to lease?

Thanks everyone! :)

@glynis14:
Yeah working at Spruce is pretty cool. Its interesting to see all the work that goes into their tournaments. Hopefully I'll be doing things outside more once the bigger tournaments roll around, cause for now I'm stuck at my desk in the office :( hahaha
And no, I never quite found what I was looking for unfortunately. Since I'm working full time I really only wanted something more along the lines of a 1/4 lease, and I'm fingin that most people in Calgary are the all or nothing type! Hahaha... Maybe next summer...
Where do you ride?

I'm at Cadence Stables - it's SE of the city (in Dewinton). It's a nice small facility, dressage focused. I don't get out to ride very often though :( What type of riding do you do?

Hi! I'm sure you'll like it here. If you don't mind me asking what is Spruce Meadows?

@Phantonstallion:
Spruce Meadows is a world class show jumping facility! Most (if not all) olympic jumpers from around the world compete here in the summer. So needless to say, it's a pretty cool place to be during tournament season!

@glynis4:
Cool! Maybe if I'm ever out that way I'll come visit, hahaha! I'm looking for a place to ride that's close to me (I'm in the SW) but there aren't very many. I already drive so far to get to work, I don't want to have to drive far again to ride :(
