Practice cost is $20 for 4 runs sorting or penning.  Clinic cost is $40.  If you don’t board with us please add a $20 haul in fee/horse.

Please sign up on whiteboard list or call or text Lisa 780-237-7587 or Lexi 780-340-5773 ahead if you plan to come, or go to our "Edmonton Area Cattle Penning Sorting" facebook group and check for updates and message/comment if you are coming Sat nights.  Sunday clinics are limited to 15 riders so you must book/pay ahead with Lisa.  If interest is low, we may cancel or haul less cattle. 

Please note that cattle will not be hauled in if daily high that Saturday is colder than –15 degrees Celcius.  Will start again in the fall!

For experienced lesson students, we do have some suitable lesson horses than we are willing to lease.  Video of practice  Pictures below.
