[ ] In this episode we are bringing you a few highlights from the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto. We have a report from Horsica Miller, and also a pre-recorded phone interview with Barb Fogler the founder of a cool "horse community" website called BarnMice!

[ ] Every November, the country comes to the city, for the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair, and hoofbeats was there Nov 7-16th. We're going to tell you about the lighted quadrille, the indoor eventing and some of the show jumping highlights when Jackie Bellamy, a Horse-Sport reporter gets here. But in the first half of the show we are pleased to welcome Alison Porter of the musical group Dirty Dishes to our studio. "Their blend of sassy, dirty-old-jeans three part harmony" delighted audiences at the Royal, and we're gonna kick off today's show with a track from their cd.

He took top spot again in 2007 with the same horse, and this year, he took the top placing in the $10,000 class with Myrddin's Sebestian. Up against an outstanding field of competitors featuring members of both US and Cdn Olympic teams.
