Cain Quam is a 4th generation horse trainer. He started his first pony when he was 5. His parents were rodeo stock contractors, which allowed him the opportunity to start studying and understanding stock at a very early age. Cain tried his hand at bull, bronc and bareback riding. Although his rodeo career was successful, it was also short. He was drawn to the life of a cowboy and began riding government leases, where he cared for several thousand head of cattle. Although he really enjoyed cowboying for a living, he felt that his sideline of training horses would make a better career.
After several years cowboying, Cain put his shingle out as a professional horse trainer. He has been training horses full time for 30 years now. He has trained multiple Canadian cutting horse champions, as well as coached multiple nonpros to various titles. Cain has also trained multiple Canadian and world champion cowboy mounted shooting horses, as well as coached the riders to these titles. His influence in the horse industry does not end there. After 25 years as a clinician in topics such as colt starting, cutting, cowhorse, ranch roping, horsemanship, and barrel racing, you can find horses and competitors that Cain has mentored in every discipline. Cain has always been a student of the horse and his passion for horses and his commitment to their owners has brought him to realize his motto “where you and your horse find success”.
Cain has learned to appreciate the horses ability to help their handlers/owners to facilitate self-discovery. His clinics and workshops are geared towards mental preparation, teaching participants tools and strategies to perform at their peak level. Along with their horse riding clinics, Cain and Roberta also offer personal development and team-building workshops.
Cain and his wife, Roberta, have owned and operated a successful training and boarding facility out of Kendal, Saskatchewan for the last 21 years. They are very proud of their 2 daughters who are both accomplished horsewomen and are now attending the University of Saskatchewan.
