Our Training

The Wilderness training program is dedicated to developing the top cutting and reined cow horse prospects in North America; one young horse at a time.


Our individualized training program provides development and guidance that encourages athleticism and cow smarts combined with a sound mind and body. Training periods are followed by month-long turn outs in one of Wilderness’ beautiful pastures on more than 100 acres in the Calgary countryside.


In addition to a strong fundamental start and a daily regimen that includes working the flag, cattle, or buffalo, each individual is exposed to rigorous rides in the Rocky Mountains, hauling along with show horses, and cow work at neighboring feedlots. Our show barn reflects some of the finest breeding in the cutting horse industry with the earnings to prove it!


Wilderness prospects are just starting to show off. With only two foal crops of competition age, Wilderness celebrates two Canadian Supreme Champions! The cornerstone of our program is the “top dog” at Wilderness, Dual Boozer. “Boozer” offspring are consistently top performers in the herd work at reined cow events and you can watch for at least two of his progeny this spring competing in Canadian cutting aged events. Wilderness congratulates the successful Boozer competitors this season and boasts multiple non-pro and aged event finalists and the Canadian Supreme Non-Pro Champion!


Our top show mares are own daughters of Smart Little Lena, Dual Pep, High Brow Cat, Cats Red Feather and other great stallions. Watch for our top performers in the upcoming show season both here in Alberta and in the Western States.
