Boarding

Kestrel Ridge Farm is a gated, equestrian boarding and training facility.

A beautiful 160 acres of Alberta pasture land, nestling in a fertile valley, in the foothills of the majestic Canadian Rocky Mountains, yet just minutes from metropolitan Calgary.

All the standard features of a premier boarding facility, and yet more!

Your horse will enjoy gorgeous pasture, large stall, first-class sand arenas, and a calm atmosphere.
The riding is superb: an indoor riding arena, two outdoor riding arenas, a round-pen, idyllic trails through the peaceful woodland.
Dedicated riders are welcomed into the friendly barn atmosphere, where encouragement and support are given to all.
If you require training our resident trainer, Jewels Vysniauskas, offers customised programs to suite a beginner, young-rider, or competitive rider.

Design of the facility

The construction of the facility was based on safety and compatibility for the horse,and as testimony to that design the farm has been featured in several publications such as Horse Sport Magazine.

The individual stalls feature Nelson automatic waterers, comfortable rubber matting and exceptional ventilation. All exposed aggregate flooring offer an in- floor heating system to reduce the risk of freezing as well as provide a safe and comfortable walking surface. All utilities such as electrical and plumbing are stored on retractable reels overhead so as to eliminate any interference with horses and riders.

Attractive and safe vinyl fencing is used throughout the farm, coupled with equine electric fencing on top-rails.

An exceptionally high level of maintenance is essential for continued safe operation of a facility like ours, and so we keep maintenance staff on-site 7-days per week.
