As a registered non-profit, we can't continue without your participation in volunteering for various committees and in donation of money for a variety of needs.

Help US to HELP the people who want to have the experience of working with, riding and building relationships with horses.

“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.

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.  

All donations, mailed to the above address, are gratefully accepted. Or check out the donations page to donate through paypal 

Thank you for your kind attention to our request.

Dennis Quilliams, Special Ability HorseManShip and Heather Russell, Equine Guided Education,  are the primary program providers that         Gaitway supports. 

Providing Opportunities for Equine-Related Activities

We believe in the healing benefits of horses to improve the lives of those in our community. We wish to ensure that all who wish to benefit by participating in a diverse range of equine related activities, are not hindered by lack of funds or access.

Gaitway will function in a 2-fold manner:

  • to provide equine experiences through programming
  • to supplement costs for maintaining horses, program and  to enable individuals, regardless of age or ability,
  • to participate in equine experience
