Amy and Irish competed at the FEI 1 star level; Amy has developed Irish from a 4 yr old to a 1 star cross country machine and now takes pride watching Irish in her new role of teaching an
adult amateur. Amy had a great 2017 season upgrading her current horse, My Boy Ben, to preliminary level with the hopes at running his first FEI event in the spring of 2018. The 2017
season was also spent developing young horses in their first season of competition, both for sale and in training for their owners.

Amy is an Equestrian Canada Certified Competition Coach. Her background as a coach and a trainer has been filled with producing and training horses and riders up the levels for many
years. Amy competes at all the Alberta horse trials as well as many events in British Columbia and the United States. She believes in cross training at dressage and showing jumping
competitions to allow the horses and students to be prepared and put forward a peak performance at events.

Amy’s passion for the sport of eventing goes beyond her own ambitions, there is a thrill that comes with providing students with tools that enable them to be their best and in turn bring out
the best in their horses. She coaches a large group of competitive students from starter to preliminary, and takes great pride in the program that produces skilled riders and horses. She
has experience coaching a wide variety of age groups and skill levels; including teaching several pony clubs in central Alberta, as well as teaching camps and clinics for other clubs and
organizations. Her objective when coaching is to develop confidence and a solid foundation for both horse and rider, enabling them to progress and become successful at any level of sport.

 

Alex Alves

Alex Alves

Along with his young family, Alex operates Hat Creek Performance Horses near the town of Bassano, AB. Growing up in the horse industry allowed Alex to develop as a horseman through the many disciplines he either competed or worked in, ranging from hunter jumpers, western and English pleasure, track and polo horses, team roping and calf roping. Every discipline taught him something valuable, along with every horse. Today Alex starts young horses on the right track for any discipline and finishes them to a focus in Reined Cow Horse, Cutting, Ranch Horse Versatility and Rope Horses. He is a proven competitor within the NRCHA and other trainer challenges and strives to create a solid foundation for a solid horse.

 


Chris Munro

Chris Munro

Chris and his family live in SW Saskatchewan where he trains horse’s full time. Chris grew up on the back of a horse and at just 15, his first job was working for a trainer. Over the years he has worked with many other reputable trainers in the cow horse and cutting and still continues to get out and learn every chance he gets. In 2016 Chris had an awesome opportunity to compete in the All Equine colt starting challenge in London ON, where he was crowned champion. In 2017 he had another great opportunity to try a different format of a colt starting challenge and competed in the MacGregor colt starting challenge and sale. There he brought home the title of high seller of the sale and 3rd place overall. He is excited for the opportunity to be part of this challenge in 2018. In his spare time Chris can be found in the cutting or roping pen. Our program would be best described as combining natural horsemanship and performance horse training to achieve a well-balanced and confident horse. He loves nothing better than getting the young ones off to a great start, no matter which direction they’re owners take them.


Adam Thiessen

Adam Thiessen

Adam grew up on a cattle ranch along the north Saskatchewan river ,he worked cattle horseback partly because of terrain and because his parents loved horses.

“We always had some young horses around and I got the opportunity to help at a young age . I have packed mules in the mountains rode pens in the south and rode for ranchers and in PFRA pastures.

Spending winters starting colts was a way for me to stay in the saddle year around . I feel that working with horses and cattle can teach us how to see the big picture and hope to continue helping others learn from my mistakes for many years to come.”
