Priddis, Alberta is a small hamlet just South West of Calgary, and only 10 minutes West of Spruce Meadows - the premium show jumping venue in North America. Nestled among the trees, bordering the creek and protected from busy roads and spectators, sits Grayton Farms and the home of Canadian show jumper and trainer Alexander Grayton.
Alexander's family farm in Priddis, AB, offers a fantastic place to train in the off season as well as fully prepare horses for competition. The 15 stall barn has a wash rack with hot and cold water, laundry facilities, individual lockers, tack room, feed room, solarium, as well as a treadmill to keep horses in peak condition for competition.
Attached to both barns is a heated indoor arena featuring mirrors for accuracy of movement as well as position work. The arena is well-lit for jumping at all times of day. Recently installed to ensure both safety and performance, the footing is state of the art GGT, with an automated sprinkler system to ensure an even cushion with perfect traction for jumping.
Grayton Farms has a very large outdoor jumping ring with state of the art GGT footing and a top notch drainage system. With freshly painted jumps and a wide array of walls, boxes, and fill, there is plenty to challenge horse and rider in one of the nicest outdoor arenas in Western Canada.
When it comes time for relaxing rides the many walking trails on the property provide a great tour with the creek and mountain views.
The farm has plenty of room for grass turn out, as well as smaller paddocks of varying sizes to suit the needs of all horses. The horses can enjoy group or individual turn out for full or half days.
