Big news for Horse Country’s future

I have had a great ride with Horse Country over the past 11 years, but the time has come for me to hand over the reins to a new and enthusiastic team.

Effective immediately, Horse Country will be owned by S. G. Bennett Marketing Inc. of Winnipeg (Shawn Bennett), with Tara Reimer (Cloud Nine Ranch, Steinbach) representing the magazine for editorial and advertising.

The March issue will still be produced by me, but after that all contact will be with Tara.

I have a good working relationship with Shawn and Tara, and I know they will do a great job with Horse Country.

The past 11 years have been a wonderful experience for me. I learned an awful lot about magazine production and horsemanship and met some great people in the course of business, many who have gone on to be close friends. The handover will be bittersweet, I know, but I am looking forward to spending more time on the trails with my horse, and less time in the office.

To find out more about Shawn and Tara, please read below.

Best regards

Linda Hazelwood

Do you enjoy Trail Riding?

Some of most beautiful, challenging equestrian trails to be found on the prairies are in need of some work. The 25 miles of trails in the Souris Bend WLMA are totally maintained by volunteers. We need some help. We are planning a work bee in April and would love to see a crew of equestrians out to help. We need people with chainsaws, quads, nippers etc. I would also like to get the trails rotary mowed to clear the scrub undergrowth. I have contact someone with a bobcat and bushmower who is willing and able to do this work. He charges $75 an hour. I need to raise some funds to help pay for this. So anyone interested in making a donation of $75 or more would receive a sign on the trail recognizing their sponsorship. If you are interested in helping with the work or making a donation towards the mowing please contact: Myna Cryderman phone 204 534-2390 or email
Horse Country (Linda Hazelwood) has donated $75 to help - who else would like to join in?
