Providing Opportunities for Equine-Related Activities


Upcoming Fundraising Concert: 
After much difficult discussion and consideration the Gaitway to Equine Experiences board had decided to postpone the upcoming fundraiser. It appears like the current economy is making it very difficult for all non profits to raise funds, even the well established ones.
Thank you for your interest. We continue to look for sponsors to support the non profit that provides support the many clients in the Central Alberta area.

“Providing opportunities for equine-related activities for people of all ages and abilities”

Horses, hearts, children and adults is a mix that enhances life and encourages physical, emotional and developmental growth. It’s a chance to participate in an activity that brings joy to hearts and smiles to faces.  Sometimes it’s a time of connecting in a physical way and sometimes it’s a time of heart connection, but it’s  always a time to share from the human heart to the equine heart. We are sure that there are people in your life who would benefit from spending time with horses.

Gaitway To Equine Experience began in 1986 as Waskasoo Riding Association and then changed it’s name to Central Alberta Special Equestrians. Regardless of the name, the mission has always been to build relationships between horse and human. Throughout the years there have been many people with a variety of needs who have participated with horses through the programming offered by Gaitway.

Gaitway has a twofold purpose for their foundation:

to provide equine experiences through programming AND

to supplement costs for maintaining horses, programming and  to enable individuals regardless of age or ability, to participate in equine experiences.


As a non-profit community service your support is valuable to allow us to fulfill our goals of providing for those with a wide range of needs to have a beneficial experience with their equine friends. Our programs are diverse and meet a variety of needs. Participants can engage in ground work, horsemanship and riding lessons or equine guided education sessions for personal and professional development. For whatever the cause, Gaitway needs and appreciates your donations and support.   All donations are eligible for tax receipts.

By participating with Gaitway you will be providing an amazing opportunity for those with special needs, both adults and children.

We will be glad to speak with you personally and explain more fully what Gaitway to Equine Experiences has to offer.
