Rod Olsen of Leavitt, Alberta, has been training horses for 40 years. Following in the ways of Ray Hunt and Tom Dorrance, Olsen learned that when working with horses, respect, patience, and a gentle hand go a long way in developing a trusting, confident and willing partner. Olsen has developed a training program that is based on helping horses and riders reach their greatest potential. He enjoys sharing his knowledge and expertise through clinics and one-on-one training sessions.
Renee Gareau of Millet, Alberta, started training horses at a young age and bought her first horse, a two-year-old green broke Quarter Horse, at age 10. She progressed through 4-H, gained knowledge and experience, and after high school achieved a diploma in Equine Science Western Horsemanship at Olds College. She has spent many years exercising horses, starting colts, and building her experience and reputation. In the spring of 2012, Gareau was offered the opportunity to become the main trainer at a new facility in Camrose, AB.
