Aside from the fact, that we are really good, salt of the earth people…It’s incredibly beautiful here. You’ll be camping amidst the willows, with views of some of the most incredible sunsets that grace the planet. There is a huge arena with good ground. But, the beauty of the place exists within the trails along the cutbanks of the South Saskatchewan River, the green grass, rolling hills, ancient trees and the history of this working cattle ranch that has gifted us for over 120 years. We look so forward to hosting Jim, Andrea and all of you.

Born and raised in southern Alberta, Jim has spent his life with horses; Team Roping, starting colts and taking clinics with Tom Dorrance and Ray Hunt as a youngster, progressing to Reining and Cow Horse Events where he has NRHA earnings over $130,000 and Lifetime earnings in excess of $200,000 total including other events.

In Canada he has won the Canadian Supreme Reining futurity 3 times, along with a multitude of other championships at various other Reining venues. With his background of training in so many different areas of horsemanship, he was excited when invited to participate in the Calgary Stampede Cowboy Up Challenge in 2011. This was his first competition in this sport, and he was awarded the Reserve Championship. One year later, in 2012, Jim returned to win the Championship at that event, and then carried on to win the Pro Final in the World Championship at the 2012 Extreme Cowboy Association World Championships in Hamilton, Texas in November. Once again in 2013, Jim won the Cowboy Challenge at the Calgary Stampede!


2014 Road to the Horse first ever Wild Card Champion, Fan Favourite… AND the 2014 Colt Starting WORLD CHAMPION! Jim spent time in Europe, taking titles such as Italian Reining Derby Champion in 2000, as well as the European Cow Horse Futurity and Derby Championships that year. Jim has numerous awards and trophies in his horsemanship career in many disciplines, but has excelled as a reining horse trainer, cowboy up challenge horse trainer and competitor as well as being an incredible clinician!

Jim strives to help people and their horses achieve their dreams, to show them a way to develop a true partnership through Natural Horsemanship and to reinforce positive understanding.
Jims’ wife, love, business partner and fellow horse trainer, Andrea, is a core part of the organization managing events, clinics and participating in competitions.

Regardless of titles and credentials as horseman and trainer, Jim is equally known from his calm, quiet, cheerful nature and his innate ability to communicate knowledge, even to even the newest aspiring horse person.

Jim’s clinics are always filled and everyone leaves smiling – eager to put their new skills into effect – and looking forward to the next “Jim” clinic. His grin, that twinkle in his eyes, and his two favorite words “Just Right!”, are some of the finest praise any of us can receive when developing our own horsemanship skills.

Jimmy Anderson Horsemanship is run by Jim and his wife Andrea Anderson. For more information visit their website
