British Columbia, Canada's westernmost province, is located on the Pacific coast, and has a land and freshwater area of 95 million hectares. It is Canada's third largest. The province is bounded by the U.S. states of Washington, Idaho and Montana in the south, Alberta on the east, the Northwest Territories and the Yukon on the north and Alaska on the northwest. British Columbia is characterized by mountainous topography as seen in the coastal mountain range behind the Thunderbird Show Park grounds in the foreground of our banner. Along with substantial areas of lowland and plateau country as well as an abundance of waterways, the province has many areas suitable for breeding and raising top quality Warmblood sport horses utilizing the best bloodlines available. Featured horse Viking, an FEI dressage competitor, is by Vulcaan, one of the first Canadian Warmblood stallions to be fully approved. The winning jumper featured is typical of the quality of BC bred Warmbloods competing at top levels in Canada and the USA.
