Justabouta Ranch is located on two sections of grass land in Hanley, Saskatchewan. We are the only place on our road, making it very quiet. Our facilities include:
All horses are kept in outdoor pens, unless a box stall is absolutely required. We feel we deal with less soundness and mental issues by allowing horses to have room to move around and "be horses".
- 80x132 indoor arena
- 140x300 outdoor arena
- 130x130 outdoor cattle working pen
- cattle handling pens
- outdoor horse pens
- NEW 36x64 Barn
- wash rack
At Justabouta Ranch we firmly believe in starting all show prospects as long yearlings or early two year olds. This way we can spend shorter, more consistent training periods on them rather than having to camp on them to catch up, thus putting more pressure on them mentally and physically. With all our horses we believe consistency is key.
|Dale Clearwater grew up on a grain farm near Nipawin, Sask. He began working for the provincial pasture system at age 16. During his eight years on the pasture Dale refined his skills by attending as many clinics as he could and watching videos. Pasture work also taught Dale the art of working and handling cattle. After some early success in ranch horse competitions, Dale wanted to try competing at a higher level and decided to try the cowhorse arena. In preparation he spent winters working for a reining horse trainer and a cutting horse trainer. Following his last summer on the pasture Dale was hired by cutting and cowhorse trainer Brad Pedersen, where he spent a full year under his guidance. From Brad's, Dale moved back to Saskatchewan to start up his own operation on what is now known as Justabouta Ranch. Dale has been successful in the cutting pen, but is more known for his success in the Reined Cowhorse Arena.|
At Justabouta Ranch we believe that in order to achieve any success in the show pen, you have to have a great team behind you. We are so blessed to be able to work with some of the best professionals in their field.
Our program consists of a regular worming and vaccination schedule. We also closely monitor our horses condition and soundness. All this is done under the guidance of Dr Julie DeMossiac, DVM of Bratton Road Veterinary Services in Outlook, Sask., and Dr Conrad Wilgenbusch, DVM and Equine Surgeon now located at Delaney Vet Services in Sherwood Park, Alberta.
A good farrier is also essential to keeping our horses sound and show ready. We are so blessed to have Ross Smith as part of our team. Ross has been a farrier for a number of years and has been Justabouta Ranch's main farrier for over 7 years.
We also believe that proper equine dental care is of utmost importance, and all our horses are in a routine dental program. For all our equine dental needs we have Glen Hamilton on team. Glen is a graduate of the Acadamy of Equine Dentistry in GlennsFerry Idaho.
To keep our horses in the best condition we also closely monitor our feeding program. We have pens with self feed grass/alfalfa bales, and for those easy keepers we have smaller pens where hay is fed at chore time morning and night. In addition we feed a grain ration that has been custom blended to meet all our nutritional needs. Teri spent time working with a nutritionist to develop a feed that we feel gives our horses the energy needed to perform and well as all they need to keep them looking in tip top shape.
