WELCOME TO WEST GIMLET FARMS, home of performance Canadians. We raise Canadian Horses that can be used; work, pleasure, competition, or all three. Our horses are selected for conformation, athletic ability, and a good temperment.
You will find our farm in West Central Alberta. We raise Yak as well as the horses, and also have several young children. Besides raising horses, we also use them for feeding hay to the Yaks. We do some competing with the horses as well. Hope you enjoy our web page, if there is anything else you want to know please contact us.
The Canadian Horse is the oldest breed in Canada dating back to the 1600s. They are known as "The Little Iron Horse". The breed at times in history has came close to dying out, but is now making a comeback, and as of 2002 they are now the official horse of Canada.
The horses have super bone, feet,and dispositions. We have found them to have a lot of stamina, a love to work, be very trainable,and versatile.
