PHOTOS: Nelson Riding Club canters into Christmas

Brother and sister Hudson and Melina Burgener get a feel for horseback riding.
Abby Barnhouse showed up for horses, not rabbits.
William Udall asked the man in red for a drone for Christmas. Santa was non-committal but made a note of the request.

There weren’t any jingle bells, but the Nelson and District Riding Club made up for that with plenty of one-horse open rides at its annual holiday event Saturday.

The day featured performances from the club’s riders, free rides, music and an appearance from Santa Claus, who left his reindeer in the North Pole in favour of Equus ferus caballus.
