About Us!


Nestled in the pines north of Westlock, Alberta with our big furry family.  We are Shawn + Amara and we are so excited you are here!

We have been so fortunate to have so many families come to our home to visit our animals, have photo sessions with the horses, and join us on trail rides.  We are so excited to finally offer these adventures to everyone!

Now, a little bit about us!

Amara was born and raised on a farm her entire life – first a dairy farm, and then a beef farm always surrounded by animals.  For the last ten years she has ran a successful wedding and family photography business, taking her to beautiful destinations worldwide.

  • If she could rescue animals for a living she would, but has decided that would be too emotional as they would all have to stay with her forever
  • She would rather be outside digging in the dirt than stand in a kitchen
  • She loves snowboarding, curling, popcorn and sleep
  • She keeps her house, barn and garage tidy and clean, but the car is a different story

Shawn grew up rodeo’ing, and pretty much a life surrounded by horses – and his pet cow (Cowtown) that he used to ride with a bit.  He eats, sleeps and breathes horses and educating himself on the subject.

  • He would live on tacos if he could
  • He loves coffee .. speak to him after the first sip is taken
  • He’s a handyman and any project he puts his mind to is done with absolute and utter perfection
  • He has an incredible memory and a holder of very random facts
