We are a small breeding and training facility in central Alberta. We have purchased broodmares with excellent cow horse bloodlines and use stallions selected to meet our breeding goals for temperament, conformation and athleticism. We use artificial insemination and cooled, shipped semen for studs in the USA and fresh collection or live cover for those closer to home.
Our horses eat like kings with top quality hay and some concentrate or grain. They enjoy regular, professional hoof care and are under the care of our excellent veterinarians as required. Their training is based on proven methods of animal physiology, behaviour and learning. Most importantly, our horses enjoy large pastures, varied activities, steady friendships and life as a horse.
We breed a few mares each year and raise the foals with a gentle hand and close eye. We try to never let them experience fear at our hands and therefore keep them friendly, curious and eager to learn.
Our colts in training move at their own pace, depending on their personality and ability. They soon become solid, reliable ranch horses through this method and then pick up the finer details for showing.
