|Thunderbird Show Park - North Langley, BC|
|The grounds crew was busy getting ready for the late afternoon competi||tions.|
|If I was to guess, I would say there were easily over 200 horses at this event.|
|These pre-competitions were just as interesting to watch.|
|Fine looking riders and horses.|
|This team was washing down and grooming their ride prior to the big event.|
|Waiting their turn in the practice areas.|
|We had great seats and settled in for the main event. This is the only turf field.|
For the uninitiated, anyone who is familiar with the Canadian brand KEG Restaurants will be surprised to know that the founder of that restaurant chain is the owner of the Thunderbird Show Park. This park is really well maintained and it does host first class competitions.
|We were led to believe that this facility was only recently granted a liquor license. If true, what a treat it was to enjoy a cold beer in the shade on a hot day. What a fun event to attend. We really enjoyed it.|
|Preparing for our departure tomorrow (Thursday) for Edmonton, Alberta.|
|Readying the trailer for my horse - the iron horse, that is.|
|Solidly tethered.....and ready to roll.|
Our two children and their partners live in Edmonton so we'll take advantage and crash in at their respective houses while there. We will also be attending an 88th birthday party for Jeanette's dad.
|Well strapped down and locked into the wheel chalk. It will stay nice and clean through the mountains.|
That's about if for here. Thanks for dropping by.
