Have you ever noticed that cowboys have a calm about them? Even in the movies, they often are portrayed as calm, sensitive characters. Spending time in close proximity to horses forces us, as human beings to be present, confident, sensitive and in control. At Ste. Anne's Spa, many guests and employees have had the privilege of spending quality time with the horses on the property and have come away with a better sense of what matters in life. The Equine Experience Programs at Ste. Anne’s Spa were developed to give our guests a safe environment to take their equine intrigue one step further. Sign up for one of our popular Equine Experiences and see what a little time at the barns can do for you.
Join our Stable Caretaker for the morning chores at Ste. Anne's Farms. Make sure you bring appropriate footwear (rubber boots or an old pair of runners) and a pair of gloves. Chores include feeding (the horses and cows), turning out the horses, cleaning the stalls, sweeping, bringing in the outside horses to feed, and getting the barn ready for afternoon chores.
Enjoy an opportunity to meet all of the animals on the farm with a guided tour of Ste. Anne’s Stables. On this tour you'll be able to walk the property with our Stable Caretaker, feed the horses treats, and join in with the ‘calling of the cows’ for their daily feed.
Are you feeling like a little one-on-one with an equine? Book some grooming time with our Stable Caretaker and one of the horses at Ste. Anne's Farms. The Caretaker will help you to catch your horse in the field, secure him in cross-ties, groom the horse - including brushing the coat and mane, massaging any of the sore muscles, picking their feet and braiding their tail (if time permits).
