HEY, HAY, horse lovers!
DID YOU KNOW?
When Statistics Canada conducted a horse count survey in 2011, Strathcona County and the Edmonton region were crowned the Horse Capital of Canada! In 2018, CBC media outlet stated that Strathcona County has one of the highest per capita horse populations in Canada. That’s kind of cool, especially if you are fond of our tall four-footed friends.
