I’m Miranda Hassan, and I own and operate MH Equine. I have been training and teaching lessons for 10 years.

I have honed my program with methods and techniques I have acquired from other successful & respected trainers. My experiences and involvement in various disciplines has resulted in the development of a well-rounded and versatile training style.

Alberta Horse TrainerHOW I STARTED
I started riding when I was 12, and haven’t stopped riding since. Throughout my school years I rode around the farm, made lots of miles up and down the creek by our house, penned and team sorted, and attended gymkhanas. I exchanged working hours for lessons with a local instructor to learn new skills. I spent some time with a local horseman who had lots of young horses and learnt how to halter break them and start them under saddle. At 16 I was successfully buying and starting colts to sell.  My interest for starting young horses led me to the Western Ranch & Cowhorse Program at Lakeland College.  After graduating in 2011 I advertised my services for colt starting and started taking client horses.  I had an outdoor roundpen and arena set up at my dad’s acreage, and hauled to the indoor arena in the winter.  I took private lessons  with highly respected performance trainers to gain more knowledge.  I also attended as many clinics as I could to learn new skills and training exercises. I started showing my own horses in Reining and Cowhorse shows and was having success and a lot of fun.  I was very fortunate to be busy with training and lessons, but was quickly outgrowing the set up on my dad’s acreage. 

BUILDING MH EQUINE
In 2012 I bought the quarter I am on now and set up some pens, a small barn,  and moved on a mobile home.  Training and lessons operated at home from May-October, and November-April I hauled to the indoor arena.  In 2017 the indoor arena went up, making training horses year round a lot easier.  I am so blessed to have amazing clients that believe in my program and keep me busy year round.  I am truly passionate about horses and love what I do.  I look forward to meeting you and creating a personalized plan for you and your horse.
