Hey! I'm in Calgary. Kijiji and Google are your friends. I'm currently boarding at Rocky Mountain Outfitting in Springbank. Rocky Mountain Outfitters It's $250/mo. You'll find LOTS in Springbank, Cochrane and around the 22x hwy. Try going to local feed and tack stores, they usually have bulletin boards with lots of places advertised.

Oh and I'm just an all-around english rider, but I love my trail rides. :) So if you do end up here, you won't be looking for trail buddies! There are a couple of us who go, one guy is there at least 4 times a week and all he does with his horse is trail riding.

I talked to the guy through email and had a friend drive me out to look at it wiithout the pressure of someone trying to sell their place as the best placeI find that the real deal is when nobody has time to actually prepare the place for a potential boarder.I know its wierd but its how I used to pick my riding stables as well.hasnt steered me wrong yet.the place is beautiful,a little further out then I had hoped.but I really like it so Ill have to figure out a way to get there.Im pretty much set on boarder there though,its one of those places you can hope for but rarely ever get.
