Our 40-acre Sanctuary is located roughly 45 minutes east of Edmonton, AB in the wild prairies of Amiskwacîwâskahikan. Nestled amongst multiple nature parks and land reserves, providing opportunities for a variety of magical adventures and experiences.
Here, we offer a unique style of horse boarding, which gives back to the domestic horse a chance at living their most luxurious, fulfilling, & species appropriate life.
Surrounded by rolling hills and wetlands, this space is a healing haven - supporting both horse & human on their journey towards greater connection.
With a herd cap of 8 horses, we aim to provide the best possible care and quality of living for our herd, while also preserving and reconciling with the land.
Our paddock systems are built in accordance with the energy grid of the land, complementing the seasons of the changing winds; set up in a way which encourages frequent and diverse movement, deeply nourishing rest and relaxation, as well as safe and suitable feeding and shelter year round.
In the winter months the horses are merged into a large herd, and have full access to our long front paddock. In the summer months the horses can either wander and graze the front meadows freely, explore the rolling hills, or reside on the 4,500 ft. long paddock paradise track system.
Each paddock system has free-choice full time access to trees for shade and natural protection, open spaces to run, play, and sun bathe, hills to climb & use as wind break, fresh drinking water, well spread out hay (alleviating stress and resource guarding), pink himalayan mineral salt (loose and brick), kelp, apple cider vinegar tea, enrichment toys, and large shelters bedded with straw.
This abundance fosters happy, healthy horses - helping to holistically soothe and heal pain bodies, health hiccups, and "problem" behaviors that are unfortunately still so
commonly missed and misunderstood.
Our barn holds a heated wellness room with a toilet room, sink, fridge, kettle, and microwave; as well as an apothecary for storing first-aid supplies, herbs, feed, supplements, and health / essential care records.
The main barn is well insulated but unheated to help keep the horses more comfortable. It consists of a tack room to store your horses’ belongings, 5 large stalls for the option of grooming at liberty, a fire cauldron to warm the space on those extra cold ones, a picnic table, a radio, our beautiful flow room, and wi-fi.
Within the next few years, we aim to add a solarium to the barn, soft mats to the stalls, and finish developing the outdoor obstacle / enrichment park, community garden, outdoor healing space attached to our large rehab stall, and I'm sure so much more!
A barefoot specialist visits the herd every month to trim & balance hooves.
The considerate handling of each horse during this essential service is
available as needed.
Seasonal free choice herbs and homeopathic remedies, as well as appropriate deworming, are also offered to the herd as needed.
These essential services are included in monthly fees.
*Including the cost of these services, & specific goods.
We call our sacred land "Sanctuary", our barn the "Heart Centre", and our herd "Family" all for good reason. Allow us to care for your beloved with the depth and detail they so deserve, and let this space hold you, your stories, and your love.
