Since our club was officially formed in May 1995, we have tried to marry our Annual General meeting with a hands-on horse related activity. For many years, we combined the AGM with either a “Demonstration Day” at a members farm, or clinics, which ranged from conformation and classification, to how to hitch and drive your Canadian horse. In 2005 we combined our AGM with our first Canadian Horse “Futurity and Fun Show”. The breed show was so popular with members and spectators alike that we organized a show each September in conjunction with our AGM for the next seven years!
After several years of hosting a breed show in conjunction with our AGM, 2013 saw us return to a Demonstration day format, hosted by members Sterling and Colette Gates of McGinnis Lake Farm in New Ross. The Gates are long-time supporters of the Canadian Horse and our club and with a full day planned, members gathered on October 5th to enjoy the demonstrations and then attend the club AGM, to take care of club business. Everyone was in agreement that the demo day format was a huge success!
In 2014 we combined our AGM with another Breed Demonstration day, this time at Spirit Reins Ranch in Parrsboro, NS. Our member host, Karen Yorke-Gilbert and her Canadian mare, Willow, joined other participants throughout the day, showing the spectators just what the Canadian Horse could do! As usual, the day wrapped up with a fabulous pot-luck supper and the club AGM.
Thanks to everyone for supporting our club events!
