So it began
Dianne started looking for acreage, and in 1969 the family sold their house in West Vancouver to move to a place more suitable for horses – Fort Langley.
From that point on, the horses always came first. While the indoor arena and stables were built, the family lived in a trailer. Their house would come later.
In 1970, George and Dianne purchased property at 200th Street and Highway One. Soon after, construction began on an indoor riding arena, two stable buildings and two outdoor riding rings which would host their first show in 1972 – a quarter horse show and team roping at Thunderbird Equestrian Centre. Jumping horses soon followed, with the first hunter/jumper show just a year later.
