I don't know very many of the 'pasture riders' around here. I haven't gotten very involved with the horse world here yet, (I'm near Carlyle). My horse is north of Preeceville, and I have yet to decide where I am planning on moving when I get back from BC this fall. There aren't places available around here to rent, too many riggers.
As far as what I want to do with her, probably turn her into a trail/low key competition horse. She's not registered. I am hoping to give english riding a good try and hopefully will progress in it.

Mainly I was trying to get a feel for trainers around SK, it will be fall of 2014 before I actually start her. She is possibly bred for Oct (kind of a rescue), so I won't be getting anything done with her this summer.

I know what you're saying about renting - the market is tight here, too (I live near Turtleford). Fortunately, we now own a house, so problem solved!

Well, you have lots of time to sort it out. Some of those trainers aren't cheap, but then you often get what you pay for. If they give clinics, you could audit their clinics before you make a decision. And I would definitely try to talk to some of their clients before you place a horse there. I have heard (second hand) of one bigshot in roping scene who treats the horses terribly (but it's not anyone we've been discussing here).

I'm afraid buying land is a long ways off for me. I'm 20 and just starting out away from home.

I will keep my ears and eyes open, and if I find one I like, I'll for sure ask around about them before sending a horse.

Thank you for all the info, and help! Gotta love being a horse person in one of the most non-horsey provinces in Canada!

No problem! Yes, I remember being 20...God, I'm getting old (early 30s). I still don't own land, but my parents have a ranch, so that works for me.

And Saskatchewan is horsier than people think...maybe not much of a show circuit, but if you start looking, you might find lots of stuff going on. That's the case in my area, anyway. Cattle sorting, cowboy mounted shooting, penning, roping, etc...

Around Birsay area, there is 2 horse trainers that are just local, and nobody that is not around here knows about them, then there is Shauna, and a few people I know that will train or break a horse if you ask them to. There are plenty of unknown trainers in Saskatchewan that would be happy to do it, and are very experienced, you could look on kijiji as I have seen a lot of people taking in any horse and training them. I know, since I am known around Birsay and Lucky Lake, for working with horses, and training my filly, I have had somebody ask me to break his horse for him.

What are your opinions about Dale Clearwater, Terry Douglas, Cain Quam,Tyler Quam, Willow Ridge Stables, Tyler Darroch?

I just searched trainers in SK... Have you heard about any of them? Good or bad?
Dale Clearwater won the trainer challenge last year at the equine expo I think, and the quams I've heard are good.

I used Tori Meggison, but I don't know if she is taking outside clients currently.

ETA: Natalie Weichel used to train- Whispering Sands Training Centre, not sure if she is still or not.

Thanks! I'm already part of that group. I'm friends with Bobbie, well sorta friends, we used to own one of her horses, Nina. I also am friends with a couple of the other people on that group.

I will see what happens, I might break my mare myself, then progress from there. I can break a horse, just not sure on the other stuff.

On a good note, Ruby is getting delivered this weekend! And, I get to go and see her Easter weekend! I get to spend a couple days up there too!
I bought her a halter, lead rope, and feed pail, all in a navy blue. I already have a set of polo wraps in that color so I figured I'd stay with it. Now to buy my gelding all hunter green stuff, I have SMX boots in that color.

Thanks for that link, I've asked to join the group.

I have a colt I'm hoping to have someone start this spring. I like doing it myself, but I don't have time (and have two other young ones to finish up). I'm a little nervous about actually letting anyone else start him, though. He has a nice mouth and is a little sensitive (but very good-natured).

I attended a Cain Quam clinic - excellent. In this case he taught riders and their horses. I've heard nothing but good things.
