Thunderbird Summer Festival Horse Show By Lezah
If you’re in the Vancouver area this weekend and looking for something a little different to do with yourself, well – how about going to see a horse show?
Yes indeed, running from August 24 to August 28 at the Thunderbird Show Park in Langley (near the junction of 248th Street and Telegraph Trail) is the province’s biggest horse show. With competitors coming from all over North America, there are six rings going non-stop from 8 am to late afternoon over the next five days.
Thunderbird Show Park is home base for two-time Olympian Laura Balisky. Her father, George Tidball, is founder of the Keg Restaurant chain, so it’s no surprise that Sunday’s feature jumper class is the $50,000 Keg Steak House and Bar 4’9” Grand Prix class. Competition promises to be fierce.
