Those looking to spend their July 1 outside the realm of the usual festivities can celebrate Canada Day with a neigh.

Paul Kalke’s farm is hosting an all-levels horsemanship clinic this Canada Day for both riders and spectators interesting in experiencing the training sessions.

Kalke says the horsemanship clinic will present two of Alberta’s most popular horsemanship instructors, Dustin Grams and Shannon Cowles.

“It’ll go all the way from beginning horsemanship to advanced horsemanship,” said Kalke.

Grams has trained performance horses in various disciplines such as barrel racing, team penning and two man sorting.

Kalke says a portion of the training sessions provided on Canada Day will include working with cattle in events such as cutting.

Fresh cows will be available.

He adds those who ride away from the clinic at the end of the day will be able to feel good about the new knowledge they gained from the well-known instructors.

While there is a limit of 10 riders in the clinic, any number of spectators is welcome to the grandstand; seating is unlimited.

“They can watch and listen to every one of the training sessions,” said Kalke.

“They can be spectators that can hear and watch and learn through that,” he added.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The cost to ride is $100, and $20 for spectators. This includes lunch and a beef and beans barbecue dinner.

For further information contact 780-561-5545.

Kalke’s farm is located west of Millet. Head out of town of Highway 616, turn north onto Range Road 253. The farm is located on the right hand side of the road at the identification sign 475047.
