Equine contributions to human civilization are unmatched by any other animal. The bond
between us is 6000 years old and although horses no longer drive our economy, we believe they are integral to our history, our culture and ultimately how we define ourselves as western Canadians.
We invite you to come spend the day with us. All ages, stages and riding abilities are
welcome to join us in our very special celebration of families and horses.
