Spooks and WYGT have teamed up to sponsor professional show jumper, Andrea Strain. Langley trainer and resident, Andrea has a wealth of experience and many titles under her belt. Andrea began horseback riding when she was 6 years old. She has competed all across North America, from Indio, California to South Hampton, New York, including Madison Square Gardens to Toronto, Ontario and back to her hometown of Langley, BC at Thunderbird Showpark.
At the age of 15, Andrea won her first major title, the Sunlife Cup. From then on she's gone on to claim World Champion Junior Hunter Rider for the Northwest Division, third place in the AHSA Metal Finals in Pennsylvania, and competed twice in the North American Young Riders Championships placing 10th and 7th as well as claiming the sportsmanship award.
Andrea turned pro in 2003, she has many wins under her belt as a professional, and continues to compete across North America each season!
She's very well known throughout the show circuit and we're so excited to add her as a Spooks sponsored rider! Be sure to keep your eyes open for her in the show ring this summer!

Congratulations to Spooks sponsored rider, Robyn Walker!
Robyn Walker, 15, of Calgary Alberta, had a great week during the 2012 FEI Children's International Classics Final, which took place in Valle de Bravo, Mexico, January 30 - February 3, 2013. If the honor of attending this competition wasn't great enough, to top off the week she was part of the gold winning team! And placed 8th overall individually! What an amazing show for Robyn who was aboard, Golondrina, a borrowed horse. Robyn represented Canada as a member of Team Careyes with Briar Burnett-Grant from New Zealand, Tanimara Macari and Uriel Sosa, both from Mexico.
Walker earned the right to represent Canada through her placing at the FEI Children’s Final Qualifier, which was held at the Thunderbird Show Park Summer Festival, August 22-26, 2012, in Langley, BC.
She looked absolutely amazing in her ocean blue Spooks showjacket! We wish her luck and many more championships in the future!
Complete results for the FEI Children’s International Classics Final 2012 can be found on the FEI website.

A job well done for this amazing pair!

Where'd You Get That has been stocking up on winter essentials and fun new riding gear.

To start it all off we have an abundance of great products for you to add to your wish list this year!
With the weather getting cooler it's time to start thinking about bundling up and keeping warm this winter. Spooks has introduced a great line of toques this season that can be found in the shop! With great colours and fun pom pom details you'll stay cozy and keep warm with one of their cuddly knit toques! One of our new favorites is the Double Bubble toque. Pair it with one of the Spooks Chalet vests or the Finya puffer jacket for a chic, warm winter style.
This past Sunday, November 11th marked the last day of the 90th Royal Winter Fair. For those of you who were lucky enough to attend and watch the show jumping you may have noticed something familiar on one of the riders. Nicola Philippaerts was wearing some special stirrups!
The bright blue Soft'Up Pro stirrups by FreeJump were hard to miss as he took on the course. These innovative stirrups have been making their debut in North America after becoming popular in the European circuit. A flexible outer branch made of Elastollan ® helps to free the foot in case of a fall. An extra wide tread with a bevelled rear edge and a non-slip studded surface offer better stability. The Soft'Up Pro stirrup is available in the shop and come in a range of colours to suite anyone's needs!
