My long-distance walking buddy, Karen, thought it would be a great idea to bring her "daughter" Carmen and her actual daughter, Eva, for a ride to celebrate Carmen's birthday. We thought it was a great idea too! Karen rode her own horse, Polly, while Carmen rode Annie and Eva rode Traveller. We sure had a lot of fun! Thanks for bringing the girls to ride with us, Karen! I hope we get to see them in the saddle again!
Martina was in Vancouver for a conference this week but she skipped out yesterday afternoon (shush! don't tell anyone 😉) for a ride around the park on Traveller. We had a wonderful ride! Thanks, Martina, for riding with us here at Glen Valley Stables - Traveller and I both enjoyed the cantering!
Texas is our big, brown Appaloosa gelding with a ton of personality. I thought I'd post a couple of recent pictures of the big guy. This first one is of him telling us he's EXHAUSTED from carrying a little girl on her one-hour ride (yeah, right!). Freckles and Pilgrim were along on that ride, too.
And this second one is on a ride yesterday with his best buddy, Rio.
Most of our photos have been going up on Facebook and not on our blog - sorry about that! So I thought I'd post a few recent photos here to catch up a little. You can always drop in at our Glen Valley Stables FB page to see fresh photos of our beautiful horses. We appreciate seeing you there and are always glad when people LIKE and SHARE our page. Thanks for checking in on us here at GVS!

Happy riders at the end of their ride, loving Freckles and Traveller!
A family celebrating Grandpa George's 60th birthday, with Gene
Shawn and his lovely daughters who get to come for a ride once a year... or more, if they can make it happen!
Annie is dwarfed by the long grass when we stop to give our horses a little 'snack'
How a perfectly clean horse gets dirty... right before you put a saddle on her and take her to the park for a ride. Sigh....
We'll do our best to clean her up before you come ride with us - promise! Call or text 604-649-9818 to book your ride on a CLEAN horse! www.glenvalleystables.com
Paragon Testing chose trail riding for their spring team-building outing and we thought that was a great idea! There were more of them than we had horses so on Friday afternoon, half the group set up their bbq on a picnic table and played bocce ball on the lawn while the other half rode down the trail. Then they switched places. Lots of smiling faces both on the horses and around the bbq! Thanks, Paragon, for choosing Glen Valley Stables for your group event!
If you have questions about hosting your own company event here at Glen Valley Stables, please give us a call at 604-649-9818. We'd be glad to hear from you! www.glenvalleystables.com
Here are a couple of visitors from Australia who rode with us today and for Andrea, it was her first time on a horse. Freckles took great care of her! Here's just 15 seconds of their ride today. Thanks for choosing to ride with us here at Glen Valley Stables. Happy travels, you two!
David and Angel are getting married in July. But first, they wanted engagement photos with horses. We were happy to oblige! The weather stayed dry (for the most part!) and they got some great shots. Thanks for choosing Glen Valley Stables for your engagement photo experience!
Here's a short, fun little video of a very fun spring break/early birthday present ride. Thanks for riding with us here at Glen Valley Stables!
Here's where we share photos and memories of some of our guests and the horses they get to call their own for an hour or two. Saddle up!
