Professional Development Day fun horse time undeterred by cold

A young Vanderhoof rider braved the cold on Nov. 20 for a horseback event at the Riverside stables in Vanderhoof.

On Nov. 20, Bits N’ Boots hosted horseback events for Professional Development Day at the Riverside stables in Vanderhoof. The events were extreme trail competition, jumping, buckaroos, greenhorns, and a roping Workshop. Keith Ruth and his beautiful horse team (above) also gave free sleigh rides around the grounds.

Despite the bitter cold, it was a great turn out with many brave riders. Riverside stables flooded earlier this year and is now under new management focused on bringing positive community activities and functions to light.

Bits N’ Boots is run by Courtney Vala and her amazing female team comprised of Diana Schneider, Michelle Martens, and Georgia Scott. Vala is currently pregnant with her second child and is so very thankful for all the help and support the ladies volunteered to keep Bits N’ Boots bustling, not only with riding camps and skill workshops but also self esteem, life skills, and anti-bullying programs — all using the horses.

We want to thank Riverside stables and its incredible management for opening its doors once again and embracing not only experiential learning opportunities with the youth and horses, but hosting such events as the Pro D Horsie Day.
