Equestrian Club8-12JackEverything about horses! The D. W. Poppy Equestrian Club is for anyone who has horses or is interested in learning and sharing about horses. You do not need to own a horse to join. You just need to love horses. We share knowledge about the care, upkeep of horses, and the different options for these topics. We also learn about different training methods, disciplines, and techniques either by sharing, videos, or on occasion, going to the barn to work with the horses together. Sometimes we go to visit different suppliers in the area or we have guest speakers on a variety of topics. Every year we attend the Mane Event (the largest horse expo in BC) in Chilliwack. We also try to rent horses and go on a school ride at least twice a year at Campbell Valley Park. This club is also a connection to the Back Country Horsemen of BC events and meetings where you can also learn about horses. This club is open to everyone and all ages! We meet every Tuesday at lunch in the Aboriginal Room. See Ms. Jack if you have any questions.Year-round
