Calgary Board - North
I'm looking for a new barn to board at. I am working on developing a young jumper (we are doing hunter right now). I am looking for a barn in the north east/west of Calgary to board at. Any suggestions?
Glenhaven is north of the city, not quite to Cochrane. I don't know much about them other than it has a lovely facility and I liked the "vibe" I got when I was there.
Concorde stables is up in Cochrane, they do a full jumper programme but are very expensive.
There's also East Acres Farm with Samantha from Elation Equine Services. I don't know anything about it in person but I really like the way Samantha came across in her emails to me when I was looking for a trainer. Only reason I didn't go there was that my friend came available instead.
Steer clear of Riqueza, near Chestermere. I was not impressed with the care there, and it seems they run a program designed to get riders in and out of the ring. They were at a show a year or so ago where they had two riders riding a horse that was skin and bones. I was disgusted.
There are a few places out in that general area of the city. West winds Riding Centre is one of them. I don't much about them other than I know they have had a few nice horses come out of their training program. There is also Diamond Willow which I also know nothing about.
If you would consider the south side of the city, there are a few of us on the forum who either board in the same facility, or in nearby facilities who can make suggestions.
Ok - I am open to boarding facilities on the south side of the city down near Spruce. Any suggestions in that area? They would need to have outdoor board (in private paddocks preferably).
I actually had that barn bookmarked as my first choice to look at. That's awesome! I will check it out. Any things I should know about the barn? How long have you been there?
