Manitoba is the easternmost of the three Prairie Provinces. Comparatively level, Manitoba generally ranges from 490-ft./150 m to 980-ft./300 m above sea level. Agricultural land lies in a triangle, bordering Saskatchewan and the U.S., cutting diagonally across Lake Winnipeg. The northern 3/5 of Manitoba is Precambrian Shield. In northernmost Manitoba lies tundra and permafrost (permanently frozen subsoil). The 'Northern Lights' seen behind the image of Winnipeg, are a truly spectacular part of Manitoba. All waters in Manitoba flow to its coast along Hudson Bay. Manitoba is considered part of Western Canada. It borders Saskatchewan to the west, Ontario to the east, Nunavut and the Hudson Bay to the north, and the American states of North Dakota and Minnesota to the south. Only the southern parts of the province support extensive agriculture, yet the warmblood breeders in Manitoba have many of the top performance bloodlines in the world in their herds and consistently produce outstanding athletes for all disciplines. Manitoba is also home to the Brandon Winter Fair that features top show jumping usually attended by Canada's top competitors as well as a CWHBA Booth to promote the association.
