Spruce Meadows hosted the “Harvest Classic”, October 16 thru 20, hosting riders from around the world. As always, Chestermere’s own Sweet Talk Stables was on hand to showcase the talents of their many riders. Varying in age from 6 thru 16, the girls truly put on a great show garnering ribbons and coolers in all divisions they were entered in.
Serenity Enders(6), Kristin Gretener(10), Mikaela Brabant(12), Karissa Enders(14), Taylor Lamphee(14), Jessica Mcmorran(15), Hayleigh Hollingsworth(15), Shae-Lynn Enders(15), and Hope Enders(16) all put their best effort forth and showed well amongst a record number of their peers.
Sweet Talk Stables has long encouraged and fostered the equestrian sports in our locality and not only do these girls compete in jumping events they are also very well versed in western riding. Hope Enders recently took first place in the senior youth division for the Canadian National Penning Association and her younger sister, at the age of 6, won the Canadian National title for youth last year. Many of the girls compete in both Western and English events.
Sweet Talk regularly hosts Gymkanas and both English and Western shows and welcomes anyone to come out and watch. It really is a great spectator sport and as it is hosted in an indoor, heated arena, weather isn’t an issue.
