Sired by Alberta stud Chics In The Male and out of Alberta dam, SR Sweet Music, Chicolet is true blue Alberta bred. She was the champion of the 2001 Canadian Supreme CS Open Derby, the 2002 Blacklandslide Nitro Class, the 2003 Blacklandslide RC Beginner Class and the 2003 SRHA Novice Horse Non-Pro, and also has several Reserve Championships to her name. She’s earned her National Reining Horse Association Certificate of Merit and over $11,000 in prize money.


Debutante excelled in her new career and took Shanna to two North American Young Rider Championships, placing 18th in 1999 and 9th in 2001. She was twice long-listed to the Canadian Equestrian Team and earned at least a dozen championship titles. Debutante’s favourite was freestyle, she loved to move to music, and she did her part in promoting the sport of dressage and the Anglo-Arab breed by giving freestyle demonstrations for Young Riders and for the Arabian Horse Association.


Tuffy was an Alberta-bred quarter horse gelding acquired by the Whitemud Equine Centre in Edmonton in 1974 as a 10-year old lesson horse. He was one of the original horses in the Little Bits Therapeutic Riding program and taught continuously with the program for 32 years, winning the CANTRA long-service award in 1999 and the CANTRA Therapeutic Horse of the Year award in 2005. In addition, he was a regular lesson horse at Whitemud Equine Centre until 2005, acting as schoolmaster for generations of young children learning to ride. He loved children and, whenever a child visited him, would put his head down to the child's level and welcome the gentle pats or excited squeals.


On February 28, 1989, a tiny filly was born at the farm of Josef and Edda Selinger (JES Breeding) near Calgary. From a Holstein dam named Ladybird, due to her tiny stature, she became Colibri, French for hummingbird, and was registered as a Canadian Warmblood. The Selingers missed her arrival by some hours and Joe is still amused at how this little Whippet-sized filly turned around and kicked at him – apparently her assessment of “the service at the inn” – when he showed up at 7 a.m.


When the Hack family purchased a 40-acre stable facility NE of Calgary in 1984, they inherited one of its residents, a 15 hh palomino gelding named Goldie. Goldie was in his teens at the time, with an already lengthy resume of teaching people to ride. Anyone could ride him -- children, adults, beginners to more experienced riders -- and Goldie had a way of matching the needs of each individual. In addition to his teaching duties, when one of the Hack daughters needed a mount to participate in a jumping program, Goldie took up jumping. If a boarder was looking for a quiet, reliable mount for a friend to ride, Goldie headed out on the trail.
