Our little piece of paradise covers almost 800 acres of native mixed aspen, spruce forest and open grasslands in the rolling foothills, east of the Rocky Mountains. After hectic careers in the Calgary oil patch, we are enjoying the slower pace and physical work of ranching, near Bergen, Alberta.
We breed and raise registered American Quarter Horses with excellent performance cowhorse bloodlines. We start our foals early, with a gentle hand, teaching them basic ground work. trailer loading, leading and standing tied. We wean at six months, and begin more serious training - more groundwork, sacking out and ponying. Early in their second year, they are ready for a saddle and soon after, a rider. With consistent bloodlines on the dam's side, we have learned how to best work with each youngster to bring them along without a fight. Fear and intimidation have no place in our operation.
If you are interested in our horses, give us a call and plan a visit - or just drop in. We will show you around the operation and introduce you to the horses. You will be welcome to watch the day's training routine. If you have a particular horse in mind, let us know and we'll schedule a specific session so that you can watch the horse at their current training level.
All of our horse's AQHA papers are available online, but give us a call and we'll tell you all about them.
