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!
Freckles and Pilgrim grazing amongst the flowers
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!
It doesn't always rain or snow - and we have photos to prove it! It's been a tough winter for riding, what with all the inclement weather, but whenever it dries up there's no better time to get in the saddle. This is a photo of Freckles and Texas with two guests last weekend during a pleasant dry spell. We let the horses have a drink from the stream and snapped a photo. Love this life!
Here's a short video from yesterday of two brothers and a sister out for a ride on a beautiful snowy Sunday. The trails still have some snow on them (which is very pretty!) but it's not icy, making it perfect for a Sunday ride. The brother (on Freckles) and the sister (on Traveller) had never ridden before - they had a great first experience! That's Gene in the front on Annie, followed by Freckles, Texas and Traveller.
We've had a lot of snow around here lately, which has slowed our trail riding down but is very pretty! Our good friend, photographer Sally Rees, took this photo of the Campbell Valley Equestrian centre, where all our riders start their Glen Valley Stables' rides. You can see more of Sally's work on her website www.sallyreesphotography.com
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!
