  • Description

    Description

    I share my small farm with two Dutch warmblood mares, a darling mini, Maremma dog and cat. Home is a charming, century old farmhouse but has all modern conveniences. I am retired but keep myself busy doing renovations, yard work and playing with my fur family. The closest hamlet is one km away with library and grocery store. Calgary home to Stampede and Spruce Meadows is an hours drive and the Rockies are two hours. I would welcome a mature female traveller with horse experience and would gladly show her the sights of beautiful southern Alberta.
