 "I have taken lessons with Cassie over the last several years and they have always been amazing! Cassie is great at personalizing her teaching style to be exactly what you need as an individual. I have seen her use different techniques with different people to build capable and confident riders in everyone that she coaches. " Becky, Regina

    " Cassie and Arliss provide differing but complimentary styles, both in coaching and training. This breadth and depth of knowledge and experience means that they are able to work with such a wide range of horses and riders, that there truly is something for everyone. For me personally they have helped me develop as rider, taking this nervous older rider, with a lifetime of bad habits, and helping her achieve success at 2nd Level in Western Dressage. They have been patient, encouraging, and darn right direct when needed, a successful combination.I have seen many horse and rider combinations blossom under their care, and finding the right horse and rider pairing is another skill that Cassie has. If you are looking to improve your skill set, from beginner to serious competition rider, this will be the ones to go to."

"I've had the privilege of taken lessons with Cass & Arliss for eventing. My dressage & jumping scores are constantly increasing. They have always been professional, knowledgeable, kind & will be sadly missed. We are loosing a valuable team in Saskatchewan. Best of luck with your endeavors & hopefully we'll see you next year! Thank you for showing me & taking me to the next level!!"

 "I recently spent four days training with Cassie and Arliss. I had an unplanned horse accident and ended up bringing a very green horse with me instead of my regular trusty steed. Cassie is an incredible and patient teacher who is firm but encouraging, pushing or stepping back as needed. She got the very most out of both me and my young guy. I went from being nervous to ride him, to jumping a line with an oxer in four days! I feel completely comfortable taking my young guy home to continue to work. I built a real trust for Cassie and what she suggests. My horse was encouraged as much as I was, with Cassie demanding I reward him enthusiastically for small steps as much as the big ones. He fed off that and built his confidence and steadiness very quickly. Cassie has such a wealth of knowledge to draw on. She comes to lessons prepared but can also adapt quickly to what is happening in the moment. She gives you tangible, helpful tools for your riding toolbox. She was also honest and skillful with identifying a weakness in my horse's confirmation so that I can realistically take him forward in the best health possible.I only took two brief lessons with Arliss but I really appreciated his calm demeanor when things were not going as ideally as hoped. He was able to work me through a challenging lesson with specific exercises and persistence without being condescending. I wholeheartedly recommend. They legitimately want the best for you and your horse and work towards making both horse and rider the best they can be. "

"A very clean professionally ran business. Horses are all well looked after and Cassie and Arliss are very warm and friendly and easy to talk to people. We had bought a horse from them earlier this spring and everything went lovely. The horse was exactly what they had said. She is my daughters new best friend."

"I have know Cassie and Arliss now for 3 years. I have been to 3 Dressage clinics there and also 3 summer series. They are very professional and run a clean, tight ship. I have learned so much from Cassie's coaching techniques. The people boarding at the barn are also very nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend this facility for coaching and a good place to compete and learn in western and english flat and jumping disciplines."

"After moving onto my new acreage 2 years ago, I felt a little isolated and I missed having a "barn family". Cassie and Arliss and everyone at Ace welcomed me with open arms and made me feel like part of their team right away. Arliss helped me extensively with starting my filly last summer and I am ever so grateful for the knowledge, dedication and patience he showed me while he taught me the ins and outs of starting a young horse. The way he trains is so kind and patient and I am so happy I learnt from him! I have also been taking jumping lessons with Cassie on my other horse and I'm always so excited to see what she has planned for us! Her exercises are so unique and fun and there's always a new an exciting activity planned to keep both horse and rider interested and stimulated. I really could go on forever with how great this facility is! I highly recommend them!"
Jessica, Qu'Appelle
"In less than 3 years of coaching, Cassie took me (as an adult re-rider) from being nervous to canter and do cross rails, to winning hunters, dressage, 1.0 m jumping classes, and a jumper medal. Not only has she taught me how to ride better, she has taught me how to train my own horses and solve my own problems. Arliss put work on one of my first horses, but also started a very difficult horse from scratch for me. He is now my most calm and reliable horse. Can't say enough good things about this place, I have learned so much here and am grateful for all the opportunities they have given me. Would recommend them for coaching, training, boarding or just hanging out and having a great time!"

"I have recently started riding with Ace Equestrian and cannot even imagine going anywhere else. The amount of knowledge and care and dedication Cassie and Arliss put in is above and beyond what the standard is. Extremely pleasant people and they work hard to help make your dreams happen."
Taniel, Regina
"Great atmosphere and a wonderful lesson program. My horses love their program and love their home! It's my happy place!!"
Jacquie, Pilot Butte
"We have been here for a little over a year now and love it. Cassie and Arliss are great to deal with and provide a wonderful positive experience every time. They really are a teaching center and are so willing to share their knowledge and experiences with lessons, ground work, horse health, and buying and selling horses. They want you to succeed in your goals and truly care about you and your horse."
Donna, Balgonie
