Flying Cross Ranch

Flying Cross Ranch is a full service riding stable in Lacombe Alberta. Roy & Christina Sturgeon started Flying Cross Ranch in 2013 after seeing the need for a place for people new to horses to learn about them and enjoy them. Roy grew up on the back of a horse, by the age of 16 he was at the race track riding races as a professional jockey. He has raced, jumped, team roped and started thousands of colts in his 34 year career. Roy is a wonderful teacher who has the ability to make everyone feel comfortable and confident. Christina grew up around horses and spent the first 21 years of her working career at the race track learning from the bottom up. She worked as a groom learning every aspect of caring for a horse, and worked her way up to managing the race track. Roy & Christina’s combined horse knowledge and business knowledge are not the only things that make the ranch what it is, they both share a passion for helping people.

Flying Cross Ranch is not just about riding lessons, it is a place where people can come to build meaningful relationships and a sense of community. It is a place for you to feel a sense of belonging, a place for family, where healing happens, and life skills are learned, where joy is experienced, where health returns and the stress of the world disappears. We are so excited that you have decided to allow us to join you in your journey with horses!
