Ace Ranch

 
   I can’t say enough good things about Cassie, Arliss and Ace Ranch. I came here as a novice adult struggling to build confidence in the saddle and 3 months later I’m cantering the lesson horse and starting hunters with ground poles and cross rails. Cassie keeps her lesson plans educational, fun, challenging and continually changing to keep evolving skills.

  Ace caters to all ages in both Western and English disciplines. Lesson horses are available for all skill levels so riders can advance and Cassie has a keen ability to perfectly match riders with horses. Clinicians are regularly brought in and in 2015 Ace will be hosting a series of open fun shows on-site for anyone wanting to participate or experience their first show!

It’s a newer indoor facility attached with washroom facilities, heated barn/tack area and a huge arena; new services and facility improvements are being made continually. Most importantly, the horses are happy and get the best care possible.

I love this place! The owners, the boarders and the lesson clients are all truly awesome and inspiring which cultivates a positive and supportive environment!!

   "In less than 3 years of coaching, Cassie took me (as an adult re-rider) from being nervous to canter and do cross rails, to winning hunters, dressage, 1.0 m jumping classes, and a jumper medal. Not only has she taught me how to ride better, she has taught me how to train my own horses and solve my own problems.

Arliss put work on one of my first horses, but also started a very difficult horse from scratch for me. He is now my most calm and reliable horse. Can't say enough good things about this place, I have learned so much here and am grateful for all the opportunities they have given me. Would recommend them for coaching, training, boarding or just hanging out and having a great time!"

"I started riding with Cassie at the start of 2013, initially because I won a couple of lessons in an online auction. Those two lessons were enough to persuade me to change to using Cassie as my trainer on a full time basis.

 

Not only is Cassie very knowledgeable, but she has a very clear way of passing that knowledge on, and I can already feeling the improvement in both my riding and my horses way of going.  I really like that Cassie makes our lessons fun, seems to have time for everyone, and she is great at recognizing when horse and rider are coming to the end of their concentration span, a very important skill, meaning that she pushes people to improve, but doesn't push them to far.

 

I also consider that Cassie has gone above and beyond her actual contract with me for lessons, providing support for me both physical and just by being there, my horse has loading issues, and Cassie has helped me with him with ideas, and also hands on help.  In short I would have no hesitation in recommending any rider to take lessons from Cassie, fun and informative with demonstrable results, you can't ask for much more "

"I took Tundra out for a trial ride on Sunday. We went right down the highway with semis and cars passing by. He was a perfect angel. I hadn't had a chance to ride him in ages and he didn't put a foot out of place even when we got onto icy footing. Your guys did amazing with him. Just wanted to let you know."

"A very clean professionally ran business. Horses are all well looked after and Cassie and Arliss are very warm and friendly and easy to talk to people. We had bought a horse from them earlier this spring and everything went lovely. The horse was exactly what they had said. She is my daughters new best friend."

Jennifer and her Daughters traveled from Ontario to try  out a few horses in MB & SK, they picked Hef a AQHA Mare we had for sale!
"Arliss and Cassie make a great team and can offer many options and services to their clients. From starting babies, lessons for beginners to lessons for clients who want to show. Aside from that they offer a full care facility for boarding horses. These two are hard workers and set high goals to keep bettering themselves for their clients."

I bought my horse Cooper from Ace ranch a year ago and have continued to board her there. The facilities are great. Whether your brushing up on skills in the arena, taking a lesson or going for a peaceful trail ride, Ace ranch offers it all. When I bought my horse I was really green and Cassie has taught me all that I know! She is very knowledgeable about horses and is an amazing coach. In only one year Cassie transformed me from a beginner into a confident rider. Keeping my horse at this barn is also great because all the maintenance that my horse needs is at my fingertips, the farrier, massage therapist and the vet come right to you!
