The popular Road To The Royal series is returning to tell their biggest stories yet and has already hit the trail with a few episodes under their belt. Host Katie Brown and The Royal Crew were recently in Alberta shooting a very special episode with Canada’s favourite cowgirl Amber Marshall.

Now they are looking for Royal families with the following stories to tell:

  • An urban farmer who lives in the downtown core who has competed in our Royal Food Competitions
  • A heavy horse or harness family who has been competing at The Royal Horse Show for 20+ years
  • A married couple who’s love story/first date started at The Fair
  • Video submissions (horizontal format) of questions for a dairy farmer (all ages).

Submission letters or videos can be emailed to

Submit a Memory

Christilot Hanson was an Olympic representative for Canada at the 1964 Tokyo games, and was invited to The Royal Horse Show in 1964 and 1965. She was spotlighted as a featured rider and entertainment on her Olympic mount Bonheur, who was purchased for Christilot as a five-year-old Thoroughbred – off the racetrack. The pairing was unusual since both horse and rider were green and new to the sport of dressage, and at the time Christilot was the youngest dressage rider at a mere 17 years old. She would have been just 18 when this moment was captured.
