monthly equine wellness networking event Angela

Equi-Bow Canada Inc. kicks off Saieva,

“It’s all about the welfare of

CEBP/CETP/CEMT Equi-Bow Canada held its

inaugural equine networking event called Wild About Equine Wellness on Thursday, June 19. The evening, hosted monthly by Cedar Lane Farm near Freelton, was an opportunity for equestrians and industry professionals alike to connect with one another with a focus on sharing information within the equine industry related to various aspects of equine well- ness.

Equi-Bow Canada provides

an experiential educational envi- ronment with a focus on continu- ing development of resources for the wellness and welfare of the horse. The organization offers a results-oriented bodywork train- ing program to people who want to know how to improve a horse’s behaviour, posture, performance, and overall health. Co-founders Cheryl Gibson and Simone Ussel- man-Tod are excited to offer an- other forum for conversation, community and collaboration out- side the classroom. The aim of the Wild About

Equine Wellness networking group is to engage, inspire, and support one another in an open- minded community.

From Our Founder

Remembering JUL

Y 1985 It looks like Summer has ar-

rived. After all this rain farmers fields are all mud. Spring planting is on hold and hay is going crazy.

The Fonthill Lions club an-

nounced their first horse show with the annual Summer Carnival on July 5-7. The show was held at the Lions Fair Grounds.

The Burlington International

Horse Show bounced right back from the news that the service club was withdrawing the show due to

the horse. This event is for people who are interested in learning and collaboration,” said Usselman- Tod. “Our hope is to foster open- mindedness and provide an opportunity for trust and growth, to share our challenges and re- sources with one another in a way that honours other’’s experiences and to create richness and unity in the equine community.” In addition to being a net-

working event, each evening will include presentations from two professionals within the equine community who will share in- sights and experiences from their various perspectives within the in- dustry. June’s event featured Dr. Paula Dupuy DVM who ad- dressed the topic of quality of life for the geriatric horse. Linda Agnew, CEBP, Bowen Health Therapist, CranioSacral therapist and Equi-Tape Practitioner, spoke of the benefits of Doterra essential oils for grounding and focusing both horse and rider. Certified Equi-Bow Practi-

tioner Katherine Curran attended the evening and says she is already looking forward to future events. “The Wild About Equine

Wellness event was a fun-filled and informative night with a great

Aubrey and I shared a lot of time to- gether and enjoyed a lot of chit chat about horses and rodeo… you see The Rider was printed next door to Aubrey’s business so I was his visitor on many occa- sions. He was indeed a great horseman.

My Turn I do not have much to

gripe about in this issue, ex- cept that no one was able to come up with the reasons for the Auto Industries “Best in Class”. I just noticed that the Ford 150 has claimed 3 “Best in Class “ thingy’s. I’m not sure how they ar- rived at that.

I have noticed that Mr.

T opens his illustrious gob only to change feet… I did see him lay political insults at the USA War Graves site at the D-Day ceremonies in Normandy. You can always count on him making any event all about “ME”. What an insult. Soon they will take him away to the Funny Farm.

Did any one know what

-30- meant? I will leave it and see if anyone takes a chance at telling me.
