Langley, B.C. Canada


The Canadian Clyde Ride


June 2005


Our next stop was at a campground just south of Vancouver where we could easily make day trips in different directions.  One of the nearby areas that caught our attention was Langley.  Brochures tout Langley as the Horse Capital of B.C. - with 7,000 horses and equine industry valued at $77 million a year.  That was enough to whet Gerry's appetite for more information.  The brochure included what turned out to be a 7-8 year old photo of Wendee Christante and her all-female draft horse musical ride, Canadian Clyde Ride, headquartered at Langley's Cedar Springs Ranch.  But no phone number or address was given and it took a little detective work to even find her.  But, of course, we did!  She was so gracious and showed us around her place.  Gerry got to get up close and personal with the Clydes - Terry, too.  In fact, we have been invited back to watch a practice session - and of course we will go!  And take more photos.
