Amber at the Calgary Stampede Parade

Last Friday the parade for the Calgary Stampede kicked off bright and early on a hot sun soaked day and the national television coverage was provided by the CBC. After chatting with co-hosts Nirmala Naidoo, Kristina Barnes and Doug Dirks, Amber saddled up on "Goldie," a gentle palomino, and together they rode up and down the 9th Avenue parade route, interviewing celebrities and guests of the Stampede who were riding in the parade.

Below are some pics of Amber at work during the parade, but maybe some of you saw her on the TV coverage? If not, here's the video!

I've been told a bunch of fans were on hand to shout a "Howdy" to Amber (were YOU there? If so, leave a shout-out in the comments!) I gotta say, Amber looked like a total pro, with a microphone in one hand and reins in the other. And guess what? It was the first time anyone had conducted interviews from horseback for the TV coverage of the parade!

Amber then went to the Calgary Stampede over the weekend - a nice way to end the hiatus before going back to work, filming upcoming episodes for Season 4.

Here are some pics...
