Alpine Stables in Waterton is a family operation established in 1969. Dee and Lorna Barrus and their young family began with 25 to 30 good ranch horses and a desire to show visitors the splendors of the Alberta Rockies.

Dee’s ranching savvy, trapping experience, love of the wilderness and his adventurous spirit combined to ensure a memorable ride, whether of one hour or five day duration. This tradition is carried on by their capable and enthusiastic family, now into the fifth generation.

The original barn shown here was built 1969 by Dee and Lorna and their partners at that time, Chuck and Judy Bartlett. The barn, house and other buildings all were lost in the Kenow Fire in the fall of 2017. The Alpine Stables family moved into the new barn and buildings in 2020.
