A Breed Apart
We have been dedicated to raising and promoting these incredible horses in Western Canada. We are located on beautiful acreage in the heart of the Shuswap Lake District near Chase, British Columbia Canada.
We are privileged to have direct access to crown land and amazing trails. Pastures are large with diverse terrain giving our horses nature's own training ground. The trails and valley views are spectacular ~ and the horses are charmers! We look forward to meeting you at the Ranch! The appeal of the Mountain Saddle Horses is rooted in their calm, inquisitive disposition combined with the ease-of-ride and natural gait.
Still relatively rare in Canada, this unique and gentle breed possesses incredible qualities and versatility for all ages and skill level of riders from experience to novice alike.
Their natural, smooth 4-beat gait is becoming very popular and is ideal for those with injuries or who can no longer withstand the jarring of the trot. This single foot footfall can be counted in equal candescence in a 1-2-3-4 rhythm.The breed are easy keepers, pastured 24/7 and withstand our Canadian winters with ease.
Their willing and tractable dispositions are amazing to work with and their interactive and inquisitive nature is endless. We have kept it a priority to raise our horses in a natural, large treed environments.
