2010 BC SUMMER GAMES – Equestrian Day 1

A huge welcome to all the participants to this year’s BC Summer Games!!!  Athletes and Coaches have come from all over BC to compete for Gold, Silver and Bronze in their sport. 

I was excited when I learned that the Games would be held in Langley this year!  How fun would it be to volunteer at a Games and give back to a sport that I love!  Growing up in Langley, riding was something that I LOVED.  I cherished every moment with my horse either on the road or at home – but simply just loved having him as a best friend.  I know what it takes for these athletes (I have to note that it’s all ladies… not one male qualified this year!)  to compete and sacrifice to be here – and know the excitment of a win and devistation of defeat… but it’s all worth it!

If you’re new to the sport – come and check it out!  Located at Thunderbird Showpark in Langley there are 5 different diciplines competing here:

Show Jumping

Dressage

Para Dressage

Reining

Vaulting

All of these are amazing to watch – so bring your family to encourage these athletes! 

If you are an athlete, trainer or parent of anyone in these images, please contact me to coordinate passing them on to you!

Enjoy!!!
