Boarders may ride around lessons but must give lessons right of way.  Lessons are in black and lease rides are in blue. Events of interest to clients but not at Paints-Plus, or not using arena, only upstairs, are in green.

 

*Day camps page has registration forms and more information.  No boarder riding in same arena during day camps or clinics in pink. 

 

Haul-in rides are welcome at $20/horse cash weekdays before lessons only, September through June.  Sorry no evenings or weekend haul-ins unless coming for a lesson, Polocrosse or Cattle Penning/Sorting practices as our arena is busy with our boarders and lesson students on evenings and weekends.  Please call/text Lisa before hauling in: 780-237-7587

 

Cattle Penning/Sorting practices run every second Saturday at 7pm, come at 6pm to warm up.  Cost is $20 for 2 runs sorting and 2 runs penning plus $10/horse haul in fee if you don’t board your horse with us.   Video of practice—come join the fun.  Pictures below.  We do have some suitable lesson horses than we are willing to lease to intermediate students for this also.

Please note that cattle will not be hauled in if daily high that Saturday is colder than –15 degrees Celcius.  We also run Sunday sorting and penning clinics for new horses/riders every couple months over the winter, from 1230-330pm, come at 12pm to warm up.  Please sign up on whiteboard list or call or text Lexi 780-340-5773 ahead if you plan to come, or go to our "Edmonton Area Cattle Penning and Sorting" facebook group and check for updates and message if you are coming.  If there is not enough interest, we may cancel or haul less cattle.
