Interview with Amber Marshall

Interviewed by Melanie Huggett - CBC’s hit TV series Heartland, a drama set on a ranch in the foothills of southern Alberta, has captured the attention of horse lovers across the country. The series centers on sisters Amy and Lou Fleming who live with their grandfather, Jack, on his horse ranch.

Interviewed by Melanie Huggett - Karren Winther is a realtor with RE/MAX Aldercenter Realty in Aldergrove, BC, where she helps horse lovers realize their dreams of owning that perfect equestrian property, whether it’s a small hobby farm or a large stable facility. An avid horsewoman herself, competing in National Reined Cowhorse Association competitions, Karren knows the special requirements necessary for keeping horses that other realtors might overlook.

Beth Underhill is one of Canada’s best known show jumpers, having competed in over 25 Nations’ Cup competitions as well as multiple Olympic Games, Pan Am Games, and World Equestrian Games. I have distinct childhood memories of sitting in front of the TV cheering her on as she and the black Monopoly flew over the fences at Calgary, Alberta’s Spruce Meadows.

Interviewed by Melanie Huggett - It’s a rare person in the Canadian equine community who hasn’t heard of Bill Collins. An exceptional horseman, Collins has done more for the horse industry in Canada than perhaps any other individual. Not only has Collins been a great competitor, winning multiple events in roping, cutting, and other disciplines, he has been a judge, a teacher, a leader, and a visionary.

Interviewed by Melanie Huggett - Sheepskin has become increasingly popular to use with our horses. It can be made into saddle pads, girth covers, halter pads, seatsavers, and other accessories for horse and rider.

Interviewed by Barbara Fogler - This fall, Robert Dover was named Coach and Technical Advisor for the Canadian Dressage Team, so when I sat down to interview him I expected a cut and dry discussion about strategy, goals, and timetables. What I got was so much more. Robert is, quite simply, an extraordinary person to talk to.

Interviewed by Melanie Huggett - From quiet Qualicum Beach, BC, artist Joan Larson paints beautiful images with her pastels. Born in Sexsmith, Alberta, Larson has been involved with the arts for her entire life. She has studied at the Banff Centre, the University of Victoria, and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.
