Good news about lessons at Copper T
We can now offer both private, semi private and soon, small group lessons at the stables. Riders returning to us after a break please enter through the private Box 40 gate, park behind the small white building and come half hour before your lesson to tack up.
We will have a COVID safety information package for you to review and a place to sanitise your hands. All riders should stay in assigned marked areas. ( north two stalls of barn, shed beside barn is tack area)
Our monthly private ($65 plus gst) and semi private ($60 plus gst) are running now as we are able to organize students, horses, arena schedule and Instructors, and soon as we are able will add small groups at $55 plus Gst. I’m sorry that we cannot offer 10 week programming at the moment.
Please refrain from bringing any extra friends or family members. We are not allowed spectators. Yay riding again!!!

Owner/Manager Copper T Warmblood Stables
Welcome and thank you for visiting! (updated February 28, 2020) We offer English riding lessons, with Equine Canada Certified Coaches, for all levels of riders, year ’round.
Riding Lessons, beginner to advanced, aged 6 and up. Riders under 9 years may partake in an “Introduction to Horses” class which is set up specifically for the young rider in mind.
The one hour long Horsemanship Sessions run weekly, and are required for all riders who do not know how to tack up their horses independently. Riders with more experienced are invited to challenge their Rider Levels, Programming and Testing is in place for Spring/Summer 2020.
We have a number of excellent school horses for beginner to advanced riders; hunters with show experience and dressage horses.
Outside Clinicians attend for continuing educational process and for our more advanced riders including Hendrik Gaebel, Lauren Bamford, Jennifer Parks DVM, Wendy Walker, and in spring 2019, Ruth Presley McKay provided an Eventing Clinic on our new cross country course.
There are three large outdoor sand riding rings, a 60 foot round pen, and an indoor (70 x 148) riding arena giving lots of training and riding spaces. Heated barn with box stalls and tack room. The indoor arena has a dust free topping with sand and “Reiten Right” yoga matting surface, and four new stalls and cross ties for tacking and grooming horses.
Please note we offer separate lessons for adults, from absolute beginners to advanced riders. We offer a supportive and confidence building atmosphere. 🙂 We take a limited number of valued Boarders; at the moment we are full.
We attend Provincial “A” rated by the Saskatchewan Horse Federation.

All new horses visiting must present a negative coggins test and be from a low risk boarding facility (IE. a boarding facility which requires all horses to present negative coggins during vector season). If you would like more information please visit the current publications from the CFIA:
http://www.saskhorse.ca/Download/HealthWelfare/Biosecurity/EIA/A_Report_on_the_Work_of_the_Equine_Infectious_Anemia_(EIA)_Working_Group_(E).pdf Detailed pamphlets and more information about the disease and its potential impact is available. There have been recent SK outbreaks and it is more important than ever to use the testing methods currently available to us. All of our horses are coggins tested, we would be designated an “A” level site by Saskatchewan Horse Federation. Horses at our site do not attend those sites which allow horses on premises that are not tested.
