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.
Join our Stable Caretaker for evening turn in at Ste. Anne's Farms. Chores include turning out any horses that may be in the barn, making sure the barn is ready for animals to be brought in for the night, picking the stalls, filling water buckets, bringing in the horses, feeding the cows, sweeping, and general clean up.
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).
