Haven in the Rockies
Tucked in seclusion in Western Canada, this beautiful equestrian facility is nestled among alpine forests, lush pastures, and rich croplands. With views of snow-capped mountain ranges to the north and south and a wide river on the west side, this 1,260 acre farm is a gem among the Rockies. in addition to equestrian interests, the farm also produces organic cattle and crops, and the forest around this farmland is threaded with riding trails and rich wildlife.

This beautiful equestrian complex provides boarding, dressage, and jumping training and personal individual coaching. It is also the proprietor for jumping and dressage clinics and drag hunts.

Complimenting their organic farm, the equestrian facility is also self sustaining in it's energy, sourcing electricity from a micro-hydroelectric plant which profits from the multiple waterfalls on the property. the energy produced runs the entire farm, and the excess electricity is sold to the local power company.
