The South Cariboo Chapter of the Back Country Horseman hosted 227 participants at its annual general meeting and Rendezvous at the 100 Mile & District Outriders Club grounds, May 31-June 3.
The Back Country Horseman of British Columbia has 18 chapters and the AGM/Rendezvous held at a different venue every year.
Chapter chair Peter Reid said that the Rendezvous was “fantastic.” There were numerous educational seminars, including talks about evasive weeds put on by the Cariboo Regional District and vet speech on equine health issues, he adds.
Reid notes the two biggest hits with the participants were Elisa Marocchi, an Equine Canada certified driving instructor, who put on a driving clinic and she also went over what makes a trail horse a good driving horse, and Carolyn Dobbs who put on a trail class.
The great turnout showed the community is behind these types of events, he says, adding the attendees from around the province loved the community and thought the area was fantastic.
Reid says he appreciates everyone in the community who contributed to the event.
