Tanya Levorchick and Logan Hill just returned from a successful two weeks at Thunderbird Show Park in Langley, BC, with Chester Meadows two horses Baloubina and Zanzibar.

Baloubina won all of her classes except one, in which she placed second.  For her spectacular efforts she was awarded Champion week 1, and Reserve Champion week 2.

October 27th & 28th: Joe Wolter Horsemanship Clinic (Hosted by Debbie Rocha)

October 27th & 28th: Joe Wolter Horsemanship Clinic (Hosted by Debbie Rocha)

Joe’s list of achievements is too long to mention. He has earned the highest regard of respect from his peers. Is considered an exceptional teacher and master horseman.

Before the legendary Ray Hunt passed away, I asked him who to turn to for a teacher to continue learning the things Ray had started me on. Rays response was without hesitation when he said, “Joe Wolter and Bryan Neubert”.  

It is an exceptional opportunity for horsemen and women in the area to come and learn from one of the industry’s best. Don’t be fooled by the clothes. Joe also has experience riding Hunters and mentors some of the best dressage riders in the country.

The clinic will begin at 8am. There will be a one hour break for lunch where folks can visit with Joe. Things will then continue until 5:00. Joe will be working with riders one on one.

Spectators are encouraged to bring a chair, lunch and beverage. The cost is $25/day to spectate.

Testing the New Versatility Trail Course

Testing the New Versatility Trail Course

Debbie Rocha has designed a Versatility Trail Course that was presented to the Trails Committee.

The Association now is ironing out the details and there are hopes that this course will be built in the near future in the area commonly known as the “Butterfly Trail”. The course will consist of log obstacles as well as a teeter bridge. It will be a fun and challenging course that will offer something for everyone!
