Gaitway supports  Special Ability HorseManShip Program, operating near Penhold, Alberta.

Without  horses there could be no program. 

The Horses are uniquely trained  and are experienced with people of all ages and abilities. The horses are very familiar with equipment such as wheelchairs, walkers, crutches and other mobility aids 

We need YOU to help support our wonderful equine friends. 

​​​Whoopie is 26 years young! A great age for a horse. She is a Fox-trotter mare. She loves the riders, especially the ones that like to get into a nice slow lope!  Whoopie came to us a few years ago with some fears and uncertainties. She has developed into a very calm loving mount for our riders. Whoopie is the horse that faithfully carries the special saddle to enable our riders with balance issues to ride.

​​Twinkle is 7 years old. She has been with us for about a year and is starting to settle in to do her work. She is great for riders with a little more experience and need to advance in their riding skills. Twinkle is a Rocky Mountain Horse with a smooth 4-beat gait.  Twinkle is a pretty, smaller black mare.  

Introducing the Program  Horses.

Nugget and Champ are upcoming horses for the program. Nugget is 4 years old and Champ is 3 years old.  Both are Rocky Mountain geldings with very smooth gaits. Nugget has given a few rides in the arena and Champ is learning how he needs to behave! . Both love attention and being with people. They are being indroduced to all the activity and equipment that is needed and are handing it very well.  It takes time and maturity along with training to get the horses to where they need to be to be suitable for our riders with special needs. These 2 are going to be great!
