    Description

    welcome to my horse farm!! This is a rural setting amongst the foothills of Alberta.
    There is a herd of Quarter horses. For riding, training, or to become a part of enjoying their company and interaction.
    I am involved in training horses, checking cattle on the range, and teach herd behavior, training, and riding. In summer we trailer horses & riders to competition at country fairs and ride the mountains.
    There are broodmares foaling, weanlings to halter & lead, and yearlings to work. 2 & 3 year olds need started under saddle
    and we have working Cow dogs.
    It would be great to have help training horses. To halter, lead, and start riding under saddle. Experience is required. And a longer stay of at least one month, preferably two months to compete at local fairs or ride the mountains.
    Winter sports could include cross country skiiing nearby, snowboarding or downhill skiing if you are wiling to rent a vehicle to drive an hour away.
    There is a pond here for ice skating, hills for sledding, and winter riding horseback.

    Willing to pick you up or drop off at the nearest airport, bus depot.
