We are a family owned and operated horse and animal stable that grew out of a passion for animals, horses and nature.
We are located only 15 minutes west of St. Albert on paved roads. Our 80 acres of rolling terrain include a forested horse riding trail; a 200x100 outdoor sand arena; a lunging area and a 60x80 barn/quonset with three interior medical stalls and a small sand area to address horse soundness.
We offer riding lessons for ages 6-106 and Ranch Camps for little ones aged 2-6 and older youth 6-14. We also offer a variety of camps (Spring and Summer) and adult retreats and lesson programs. Farm tours, school field trips and senior's visits are also available by private booking.
Alberta Open Farm Days is a province-wide initiative created to provide Albertans an opportunity to educate, engage and experience rural life. 16 Hands™ Stables Ltd will be hosting Alberta Open Farm Days August 13th and 14th between the hours of 10:00 and 4:00 pm.
At 16 Hands™ Stables Ltd, Open Farm Days are all about celebrating open agricultural spaces and the animal and nature connections that can occur within these spaces. Hike along the undulating terrain; picnic amongst the poplars; hang out with a herd of goats or horses; flow with the flock; play a game of horseshoes, custom BINGO, or one of our signature scavenger hunts; or engage, educate and experience the benefits and opportunities of animal therapy…
We work to bring people together whose goals and values are aligned with ours; people who recognize the value of learning from their peers, their horses, animals AND the environment around them. People who place safety of themselves AND their horses first and foremost in everything they do. The services and facilities that we provide reflect our level of commitment to our goals.
