canuck place

BCRCHA president, David Parker presents Jeff Thiessen of Canuck Place with a cheque in the amount of $2,250.00. The money was raised as a result of a Bridleless Calcutta held at the year-end show at Thunderbird Show Park. The winning bidder was Mandy Fill, who purchased Travis Rempel riding Rio Merada. Mandy generously & graciously donated her winnings back to the club, which enabled us to make such a wonderful donation to a truely worthy cause.



Saturday, October 26 at Thunderbird Show Park the BCRCHA ran its first Never Won A Buckle Final. During this past season the club offered the Never Won A Buckle Class at three shows (Stradling’s Arena, Stetson Bowl and Fast Times Farm), each winner received a beautiful custom made silver belt buckle and the chance to ride in the finals for a pair of custom made chaps, donated by Chaps By Lynn and Merck. Vying for the chaps were Jan Behm riding TR Smart Rey, Madelyn Gosselin riding Freckles Perana and Leah Slattery riding Sneakin Out To Play.

Youth rider, Madelyn Gosselin emerged victorious and will be sporting a new pair of chaps, along with her belt buckle the next time she steps into the cutting pen. Congratulations Madelyn.


It was a nail biter,  came right down to the last class of the season to find out who would be the proud and deserving winner of the Limited Rider Aggregate saddle. Coming into this show there were 5 riders well within striking distance (Bill Rempel, Jim Mann, Jan Behm, Karen Popil and Doug Vandekerkhove) and when the buzzer sounded after the last rider it was Bill Rempel and All About Jason who rose to the top. Congratulations Bill and may you continue to ride in the center of the pen.

The beautiful Jeff Smith saddle was donated by LaFarge Canada, to whom we are enormously grateful.



September 22, 2013 Jim Mann presents Leah Slattery, winner of the third and final Never Won A Buckle class, with her covetted buckle. That means that Leah, Madelyn Gosselin and Jan Behm will all ride off at the Thunderbird Show in October for the change of winning a custom made pair of chaps, sponsored by Lynn Saunders (Chaps 4 You) and Merck Pharmacuticals.



This gorgeous saddle will be presented at the Thunderbird Fall Show in October to the high-score limited rider for the 2013 season. Not a bad little award for working hard, showing up and supporting a great little club. Huge thanks goes out to LaFarge for stepping up and making it possible.
