Despite the rising waters and some impassable roads this past weekend, the equine community showed their strength and passion towards their equestrian lifestyle and came together to attend Horse Council B.C.’s Community Talks Travelling Road Show Equine Education Summit at the South Thompson Inn and Conference Centre.
Equine enthusiasts from all over the South Thompson Okanagan region were treated to a day of learning, listening and laughing with four experts who spoke on equine nutrition, “What your Vet wants you to know,” 55+ B.C. Games and horse grazing, pasture, manure management, the B.C. Environmental Farm Plan program and the possibility for obtaining funding for your farm.
Kamloops was the first stop on HCBC’s Travelling Road Show educational tour this year, with Creston and Courtenay rounding out the other two locations.
Speakers included Ken Wilkinson, equine nutritionist, Dr. Jennifer Jackson from Kamloops Large Animal Veterinary Clinic, King Campbell of Topline Stables and Carolyn Farris, the 55+ BC Games Equestrian Sport chair.
