This classic 1930’s photo features one of Ponoka’s most famous early teams of horses, owned by Mr. Dick Slater, who operated the local dray service for 48 years.

Each and every day, the mail and other supplies were picked up at the C.P.R. station and delivered around the community by the reliable horses, wagon, and congenial drivers.

Our 2014 Ponoka Stampede from June 25 to July 1 pays tribute to the trusty horse, both then and now.
