*NEW* As of April 15th, 2010 Shane is working at Cain Quam Performance Horses. Our training horses will be going there with him, so if he is stuck or has a problem he has Cain there for assistance. So for the time being we are only taking 2 training horses a month. As this changes I will update our site.
At Redneck Ranch we only take on 4 outside horses a month for training. We are currently booking for July (1space left)& August are open yet. With us only taking this limited number of horses means your horse gets the attention it needs. When your horse leaves here it should be able to go on to any discipline that you choose, with softness and confidence. When starting a colt or working with an older horse we don't just ride in an arena. Our facilities include an outdoor arena and round pen as well we trailer out to indoor arenas, local gymkhana clubs, plus we will take them on trail rides through the Qu'appelle valley. All our horses are started in the round pen and rode in a halter the first couple of times. If needed we will also ground drive them and in the near future will be breaking horses to harness. We both believe that the only way to get good quiet horses is to ride them and expose them to as much as possible no matter what discipline you chose to do. All of the colts we start are easy to work with and can be rode out by themselves when they leave here.
We ask that all horses who come to us; have been to the vet and had their wolf teeth out.
Should you have any problems with a horse trained here we will help you as best we can to correct the problem. You are also welcome to come and watch while we work with your horse. Please keep in mind that when horses go home they still need to be used. Horses get quiet and broke from being handled and rode.
Our Horse Experience: I am from Alberta and have spent lots of time riding broke and not so broke horses in the foothills and mountains. I was a trail guide/head wrangler for a summer and have some back country experience with horses. So if you need a good trail horse those are my specialty. I also have been taking dressage and jumping lessons for some time and show my horses at the odd English show. We also ride at 2 different gymkhana clubs and the last 2 years I have gone to provincials. My husband has also done lots of riding in the foothills and mountains. He prefers to do ranch roping and work from the back of a horse. But you might also see him at the odd rope night.
Training Cost: $600 + $30 gst = $630 per month; If you would like further info. please call us or email us with your phone # and we will call you back.
We have colts here that are at different stages of training and invite people out to see how we work with them.
We take on a select number of horses to be boarded here.
Please call us for info.
Boarding price starts at $ 150 + gst per month. Includes pasture/hay in summer and hay/oats in winter this is for turn out with group of our and other boarded horses. Unless other arrangements with us have been made. Please note: all horses here are wormed every 3 months and must be current on at least their 4-way vaccinations.
Please note our board price has gone up due to us having to buy good quality feed as we feed some hay all year round.
We offer limited transporting of horses. The cost to you is fuel and possibly overnight stop over costs. This service is only for horses purchased from us or training horses. All fuel costs to be divided amonst # of horses in trailer.

Once every year we will be going to Texas and can drop off a horse along our way, we travel a fairly straight route from Sask. to Just south of Amarillo, TX. All vet cert., inspections, and tests to be done at owners expense. We will not transport your horse unless the paper work to cross the border is in order.
