Red Dog TackShop

In 2011 we sold our Retail Shop in Winkler. In 2012 we relocated out entire Ranch, including Restarting a brand new yardsite from scratch, redoing an old abandoned house that we moved onto the new yardsite, building a new shop/garage, building all new fencing and coralling and moving or building 4 outbuildings onto the new yardsite - one of which houses our  New Red Dog TackShop Location.   So it is a work in progress!

 

The TackShop is a fully stocked TackShop - we stock many new and used items including saddles.

 

We specialize in having affordable items for first time buyers without pushy salesmanship to sell you things you don't need but with helpful advice to help you get the right things that you do need at great prices. 

 

We don't claim to know everything - but what we do know we are happy to share if it will help you out.

 

We have in the past had one person very irate with us because they said we had such a fantastic website that they were expecting a big fancy new facility when they came onto our yard.  

 

Ours is a very humble operation - we started with horses 16 years ago and have learned everything from the ground up - we struggled a lot in the beginning and know how hard and frustrating it can be when you are just getting started as there are so many mistakes first time owners make that result in a poor experience with their first horse - we want to help!

 

We have done everything on a shoe-string budget so we do not have a big fancy facility, but we do have quite a bit of stock at great prices and we encourage trading your old unwanted stuff in for something we might have, new or used that you can use.  We consider pretty much anything you have except the poor quality internet saddles that are so readily available these days - so load up your stuff and come on down.

 

We are usually open 9-5 Monday through Saturday but because we are so far off the beaten path we encourage you to email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.   or text us at 204-325-8411 and let us know you are coming just in case you hit us on a day when we're out pulling calves in the pasture or delivering a horse or gone to Winnipeg for stock.

 

  • We Specialize in Helping First Time BuyersWe're here to help!  We were desperate for help when we first started with horses and made many mistakes because we just didn't know any better - There are many critical errors that first time owners make with their horses.  Things that you can be easily taught to avoid that will make a huge difference in how your horse behaves now and how he will behave in the future.  We offer our help in a unique, affordable way - one on one  - you just pay us what it is worth to you.Our Tack Shop was started to help First Time Buyers We started our shop because when we started we couldn't find affordable tack and we couldn't find anyone who would help us by what we needed, instead of attempting to oversell us.We sell you what you need and do not oversell you on things that you do not need.  If you want to spend extra money we have a good selection of stock for the extras too, but we work to give you the best quality in your price range.

  • First Time Buyers When you come to us as a first time horse owner or potential buyer, if you are interested we will give you a horse lesson, this is a basic lesson on how horses think and how you need to project yourself in order to have a successful relationship with your horse.  We will also attempt to outfit you with what you need - what fits you and your horse and your price range.   Non- First Time Buyers Even if you've had horses for a while, if you are having trouble we would be glad to try to help.  Our shop is off the beaten path, but by moving the tack shop to our ranch, it allows us to be able to give hands on demonstrations with live horses.  We are happy to answer any questions.  We stock a decent supply of non-first time buyer stuff as well.

  • Horses Born at Red Dog Ranch We have been breeding horses for 15 years.  We carefully chose our stallion to produce easy to get along with, fast learning, fun to work with foals that have the looks and build to compete in most local shows.  We were purposefully after laid back temperaments that would be more user friendly for less confident owners.  The fact that our stallion is a cremello means there is the added bonus of gorgeous color and his pedigree has enough show points behind him to ensure good builds as well.Other Horses we have For Sale We do take horses in trade for our Red Dog foals.  We evaluate each horse as it comes on the yard, then we price it and start working with it.  We have the basic goal that all the horses that pass through our yard will leave better than when they came and advancing toward what we call our "ideal" horse or to the best of their ability toward our ideal horse.   Prices do increase as their training progresses.

  • Horses That Have Passed Through Red Dog Ranch In the last 15 years we have owned many horses.  We love getting new horses working with them and learning from them and them and then finding new owners for them.  We have had many success stories.  Click Here to see some of the horses we have  owned.If you own a Red Dog Ranch horse...

What's New At Red Dog?

  • Buying a Horse this year? WAIT!

    With the advancement in genetic testing there is now something to consider when you buy your next horse.   For years many people have had horses with little problems (and big problems) that they have been frustrated with, spent thousands of dollars in vet bills on and have gotten rid of becasue they just couldn;t make them work.

     

    Now with genetic testing it has been discovered that some of these horses have a hereditary diseases known as PSSM.

     

    PSSM causes the following symptoms - many of which people chalk up to normal horse behavior, spoiled, poor training, etc.

     

    a Few common PSSM symptoms include:

    - A jekyll/hyde personality - very sweet one day , nasty the next

    - bucking, especially when asked to canter or lope

    - biting at the sides

    - frequent colic (which often is not colic but has been misdiagnosed as colic even by vets)

    - lots of rolling

    - refusal to move forward

    - extreme anxiety when trailering

    - stiff hard muscles

    - tying up

    - rope walking

    - dislikes being brushed

    - nasty attitude for saddling

    - there are many more symptoms

     

    If you are considering buying a horse this year - make sure at the very least the horse is tested and is nn for PSSM1 - better is to make sure it is 5 panel nn - and even better is to make sure it is negative for the PSSM2 variants (there are currently 4 - P2, P3, P4 and P5) and there is another one causing problems known as PX (originating in TB lines)

     

    If you think your horse may have PSSM (it is in about 20-30% of Quarter Horses and QH crosses) amongst other breeds - you can contact me for more info or you can go to BRIDGEquine.com for more info.  Testing for P1 is easy and inexpensive and you can do ti yourself.  You can also send myou horses pedigree and I can tell you if it has known PSSM in its background.
