I hear folks mention venues like Bromont and Rebecca Farm as bucket list events that they want to compete or spectate at someday and, don’t get me wrong, those are amazing places that I want to go also, but high up on my list of places as well is actually The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto.
Now, now … I know it’s an indoor event and not a real horse trials, but I’m a real sucker for a fair and the more agricultural the better! The Royal really sounds like just my kind of place. I can completely do without a midway full of cacophonous and rickety steel rides and carnies hawking cheap prizes — give me some horses to watch, some baby goats to pet, some maple syrup to sample and my week will be made!
We’ll be keeping our eye on The Royal’s indoor eventing this weekend as well as Galway Downs International. Stay tuned!
