Tim Barton and I have had been involved personally with horses our entire lives, and professionally as co-owners/operators of a Horseback Vacation business for the last ten years. Tim is also a retired teacher of Equine Anatomy, Physiology and Function at Alberta’s Olds College. We believe our four-legged friends and mounts, deserve the best from their owners, and so we continually enhance our handling and riding skills through educational opportunities like clinics. Jerry Tindell is a top notched Equine (horses, donkeys, mules and their human owners) trainer and in our opinion, the best! Quite simply, there isn’t any trainer in Canada, that is as good! Very few trainers have the actual real life, hands on experience working with all equines outside of an arena setting, and even fewer can share and teach that knowledge to a group of people and their animals (from various backgrounds, ages, abilities and training), in a fun, safe, and motivating environment, challenging the experienced enthusiasts, while not overwhelming the beginners. It is rare to find a trainer who can instruct a group and give individualized attention as if you were in a private session, all at the same time! He is so generous with his time and knowledge, and makes it his mission to get his students understanding the mind of the horse as it relates to its movement. He sticks with you and your horse, until you both get it, and that is why he is an outstanding trainer and one of a kind! Our business relies on safe and well-trained horses, and Jerry’s methods have proven invaluable to us.
