Winkler residents were surprised to see a number of horseback riders downtown last weekend.
Local resident Henry Neufeld led the train of riders and explains they made the trek into town to acclimate the horses to people and traffic.
"If I just keep them on the farm then that's all they know," he says.
The group was seen crossing Main St. and again picking up coffee at the Tim Hortons drive-through. He adds the horses did well in the new surroundings.
