Alberta Family Horses had the opportunity to promote the Haflinger breed in Horse haven at the Calgary stampede.
Horse Haven is a big horse barn where 50 different horse breeds through out the 10 day event will be standing to educate the people about the breeds and answer questions. We were there 2 days, July 13 and 14/2018.
All the volunteers at the Calgary Stampede and in horse heaven made sure it was a great experience for us and our Horses. It was organized very well and they made sure everyone who came out and their horses had everything they could ask for. We brought Liberty of sticky lane and her 2 month old filly LaVictoria of AFH, Wildrose Neiko and Neno. All our horses were standing in the booth like they were doing this for years, so friendly and social to everyone who wanted to give them a pet. It really showed the character of the breed. Quiet, relaxed and great minded as always. You can’t give them this experience at home, skateboarders and busses passing, a helicopter flying over when walking to and from the barn and a full day of strange noises and people passing by.
We are very proud at our horses! Hopefully we are getting invited back for next year, would definitely do it again. Happy to educate some Albertans about our lovely Haflingers.
