Take Your Best Shot!
We love sharing pictures of our horse adventures. You’ve seen some of our best – and our worst – horse days. Plowing, seeding, and getting out into the mountains are our favourites. Now it’s your turn!
This very creative image is our #geehawphotos winner for March.
It was sent to us by Bud Gustafson showing a night ride with friends behind his Clydesdales, Ryley (10) and Ranger (8). Photo by Julie Gustafson.
Thanks to everyone who sent us their #geehawphotos this month.
They are awesome! Keep ’em coming.
Here’s our #geehawphotos winner for February.
Sent to us by Rhonda Monahan, this photo was taken by Rhonda’s daughter, Shannon Heil (Rhonda’s hitcher) and shows 25-year-old Clanci pulling Rhonda and her granddaughters, Paige, Zoey, and Ella. Rhonda started driving in 2011 when she attended a beginner driving clinic at Alberta Carriage Supply and immediately knew she had found her passion.
Clanci’s career has included team hitches, farming, mountain treks, parades and the Calgary Stampede. Now enjoying semi-retirement, Clanci harrows arenas and enjoys pleasure driving around the beautiful property at the El Caballo boarding stable near Millarville, Alberta.
We proudly present our #geehawphotos winner for December.
