Dreams of the Olympic podium are not for every horse owner. Join Muffy and Ron to discuss the learning opportunities for horse owners whose primary goal is enjoyment of the recreational horse. Many riders, not just novice or “returning riders”, want to improve their skills through education. Competition does not rule! This seminar can be a guide to optimizing horse enjoyment by goal setting with your personal satisfaction in mind. Be encouraged that personal satisfaction and celebrating the journey can be primary goals. Expand your ideas to include more of the equestrian activities available.
Discuss evaluating your horse power, developing a skill progression for both partners (horse and human), budgeting and educating yourself to achieve your rewards in the horse world. Lets get informed so we can focus on the horse, the human and fun!

Ron Anderson was born and raised on a mixed dairy farm west of Calgary. The family converted the dairy business to a horse boarding operation in 1958. Ron worked with his father on building the business and in 1970 they constructed Sylvancrest Stables. This indoor arena and boarding facility became Ron’s career and he became the sole owner in 1973.
Ron and his wife Marilyn continue to operate Sylvancrest Stock Farm on the East side of Calgary. The foundation starting of young horses and their advancement in the cow horse disciplines is the primary objective.
In addition Ron has provided horse auction pedigree and commentary for over 35 years. His voice is familiar throughout the Pacific North West as a premier agricultural event announcer.
