About Rocking Heart Ranch:

Rocking Heart Ranch (RHR) was unofficially established in 1905, when Joshua Garner immigrated to Canada from England to homestead near Red Pheasant, Saskatchewan. Now five generations later, the Garner family and Rocking Heart Ranch continue to raise the “Family Friendly” horse just outside of Waterton Lakes National Park. The philosophy of training horses with strong fundamentals remains the cornerstone of the ranch, just as Joshua had always believed.

Picture of RanchAfter 110 years, Rocking Heart Ranch Ltd. continues to stand by the ranch motto; “Where Foundation and Reputation Matter”. This is accomplished by promoting the industries youth, providing education on the importance of training fundamentals, and continuing to breed the “Family Friendly” horse like Joshua did in 1905.
