Horse show family hobby for Glen Purnell family By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer The giory of winning and the competition is great but group participation is the main reason the Glen Purnell family has taken up riding and handling horses as a hobby. During a break in the Lethbridge Registered Quarter Horse Show Dr. Alberta deputy minister of agriculture and Cardston told The Herald he started entering horse shows in 1962. His wife and two children were the main contestants but the Purnell stable of riders and horses continued to grow until now his wife and six children participate in as many shows as possible. I get into the act myself whenever With six or seven horses to move across the Western Dr. Purnell finds it a little cramped for room. And it is bound to get worse with two more children in the apprentice stage and soon to be on the active riding list. A life in the civil service can crimp a horseman's especially on the scale of the Purnell family. But a move to Ottawa In 1966 didn't stop them. Two sons accompanied 10 horses in a chartered train car from Alberta to Ottawa and competition resumed after a short interruption. Because competitions in the east differ from the west in type and Dr. Purnell and his wife organized committees and set up special horse shows that incorporated different types of riding. Througn some of their 32 shows throughout southeastern Ontario and parts of Quebec have been started. When the chance for a move back to Alberta came the Purnell family jumped. They also hauled 10 horses with them and have been competing ever since. So far this they have participated in shows in Medicine Moose Swift Current and Pincher Creek. And in all the children are their own bosses. They own their own horses and take care of them and the piles of equipment and grooming aides needed to show them. But lose or Dr. Purnell feels it is the chance to participate as a family which is the most important part. That and being able to meet hundreds of compete against them and help them out. It all fits into a character building hobby that is beneficial to the family.
