Lessons & Clinics

Horse communication and skill improvement through lessons and clinics!

U Bar Ranch offers the Equine Canada Western Rider Development program in a group setting for riders 10 years and older. Development of horsemanship skills is presented in a progressive learning situation. The program provides a systematic nationally recognized process for presenting the basics of good riding with a strong focus on the safety and well-being of both horse and rider. Testing is available for completion of competencies and certificates issued (Rider levels 1-4). An accredited examiner will evaluate each level issued through the Alberta Equestrian Federation.

Weeklong summer horsemanship camps geared towards children 6 to 15 years old are offered during the months of July and August. The EC developed P’tit Trot riding program will be used to assist children in learning the ABCs of Western riding and introduce them to care of their horses.

Clinicians are also brought to the ranch to offer instruction to beginner through advanced riders who would like to improve their skills and learn from some of Alberta’s best. Disciplines include reining, barrel racing and horsemanship.

Leases are available for those who would like more access without purchasing and caring for your own.

Serviced trailer hook-ups are available for out-of-town guests at an additional charge.
