If you have some specialized equine knowledge and can contribute to an existing article or create a new one, register and then have at it!

Heroines and Horses

10 08 2006

Producers of a Canadian film about the special partnership between women and horses are looking for stories. Open Road Productions is a Nova Scotia-based production company developing this film for CBC Television.

Heroines and Horses is an intimate portrayal of Canadian girls and women who overcome life’s obstacles by gaining strength and inspiration from a very unique bond: their friendship with a horse. The film will look at diverse relationships Canadians have with horses and why females in particular are drawn to this large animal as a companion.

Ride for Dreams update

10 08 2006

Kimball Foord and Cody's Triple RevengeSadly, Kimball Foord and his QH Cody have had to call off their cross-country trek to raise money for CANTRA (see Ride for Dreams, June 26), due to Kimball’s wife becoming ill. He’s returned to Guelph to be with her, but vows to continue the ride when he can. Foord and Cody set out from Guelph on May 6th and traversed Ontario, making it almost to the Manitoba border before the ride was interrupted. You can post your good wishes on his blog, and show your support by making a donation to CANTRA.
