Training

Geoff Hoar has a proven track record professionally training horses to compete and win in cutting, cowhorse and roping events, as well as starting colts. His ability to train a wide variety of disciplines allows Geoff to find and maximize each individual horse’s potential.

Versatility makes Geoff a unique trainer, but solid horsemanship is the backbone of his training program – the numerous championships and reserve titles Geoff has been awarded in snaffle bit, hackamore and bridle competitions attest to this.

If you would like to improve your own skills in cutting, cowhorse, fencework, roping, or basic riding and horsemanship, Geoff offers both clinics and private lessons at his San Emideo Ranch outside Innisfail, Alberta.

San Emideo is a full-scale training facility with both indoor and outdoor arenas, indoor and outdoor stalls, as well as individual steel turn out pens. There is always a fresh supply of cattle from San Emideo’s grasser business for training and lessons, as well as a mechanical cow, Heel-o-matic, and roping steers.
