  • Description


    Would you like to spend the most fun time with horses, being around horses all day, learning everything about these amazing creatures, connecting with them and understanding their language? McKendrick Stable on the lake gives you that opportunity!!

    I am Meggi and have been a workawayer myself starting at Alicia's Stable here in Alberta, only 30min from Red Deer. She is one of the best and most knowledgeable horse person I have ever met. With the aim of connecting with the horse, she has no trouble teaching a horse anything, from simple riding basic to liberty lunging, riding and jumping with only a neck rope!

    I liked it so much that I decided I want to stay here and now I am running the stable together with Alicia. We train horses in differnent level, from young horses which have never been touched before, very experienced horses in different disciplines like western, barrel racing, reining, jumping, dressage... Come, join our wonderful barn! With amazing boarders and people coming out every day our barn has the best atmosphere with the least amount of conflicts and drama I've ever experienced at a stable.

    You will be able to work with horses, make your own experiences a long with learning how to care for our best friends and keeping the barn in good shape to make it the place everyone wants to be.

    You are welcome to stay how ever long you want. We do prefer a minimum stay of two months.
