    Yeah it's so gorgeous right!! And the horses love the pasture, there's a pond in the farthest back one and my gelding is playing in it chest deep every time I go to grab him. It makes for muddy horse legs, but they love it. Pic:



    It's really not that far out, you won't find anything more than 4-5km closer to the city. I'd actually wager that it's one of the closest places you'll find, especially for the price. I guess it does depend where you're coming from though! I'm only 11km from the farm so I'm a little biased haha.

    No way, don't take the bus to the uni!! Take the LRT to 69th st, then take the bus 452, 98, or 453. It'll get you WAY closer than anything near the uni haha. And if we get to know one another, I'm totally good with carpooling too if our schedules mesh. I know how sh itty it is to find a way to your horse...I'm currently walking 2 hours or biking 45 mins each way

    No worries. For any of the buses, you'll want to get off right around the 85th st shopping centre, there's a co-op and shoppers drug mart and stuff. Then you're only 11km away, whereas the university must be at least 15-20km away! If you have google maps on your phone, you can just plug in transit directions. It's so handy.

    You should take a look at allomai equestrian. The location is actually part of Calgary as it sits just outside of shawnessy. A few of us from the forum currently board there. They have pasture board, paddock and indoors as well. Great facility.

    Is that primarily a hunter/jumper show barn? I was looking to get into competitive trail riding so just curious as to what disciplines actually board there.

    Hey M2G, just curious - what's the drama like at your barn? I avoided most english places when I was looking because I know how catty some of the women can get hahaha.
