These two little girls, who are visiting from Edmonton, rode with us a few days ago for a 1 hour ride on Pilgrim and Freckles. Their grandma said they loved it so much that they wanted to come back one more time before going home. This time, though, they booked a 2 hour ride and we went all the way around the park. It was only the third time they'd ever been on horses (and that includes pony rides when they were just 5 years old!). Our horses took great care of them and they took great care of our horses. Thanks, girls! We look forward to seeing you again next time you come to the coast to visit your grandma!
Here are a few photos from our sunny Canada Day long weekend and the days leading up to it. It's been perfect riding weather!
Pilgrim is marching along to the next great patch of yummy grass!
Another happy horse snack-spot photo, this one on a one hour ride. From left to right, horses are Freckles, Pilgrim, Jiggers and Traveller.
This grandma brought her horse-loving granddaughter out for a trail ride to help restore her confidence after she fell off a horse a year or so earlier. It worked!
Thanks, everyone, for riding with us here at Glen Valley Stables. And happy Canada Day to you all!
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!
