Canadian Warmblood Horse Breeders Association - Alberta Chapter


For updates on your CWHBA National and local chapter news and events!

The Rocky Mountains are perhaps Alberta's most recognizable geographic feature. Their rugged and spectacular scenery attract visitors from all over the world. Much of Alberta's oil and gas are found beneath the foothills that lie along the base of the Rockies. The rest of the province is housed on a great plain, or prairie, which Alberta shares with Saskatchewan on the east, and with the state of Montana to the south. Alberta's cool winter climate is a result of its northern location, which exposes residents to cold arctic air masses from the north. In contrast, summers are usually warm. Regardless of the season, Alberta's skies are often sunny. Alberta is home to the world famous Spruce Meadows facility where some of the best Show Jumping in North America can be seen. 2005 Kubota Cup winner, Tammie Phillips on Lucas, a Canadian Warmblood gelding, proudly display the orange cooler of the development series sponsor. The Alberta Chapter of the CWHBA is an incredibly active and vibrant one with many activities including the Fall Classic Sale featured at right of the banner.
