Kirk and Gail Bridgeman started equine ranching in 1981. Since then they have been breeding registered Quarter Horses and Appaloosas. Daughter Kristy and son in law Tyler Gilchrist are now involved with training and competing on many ranch raised horses in barrel racing and team roping. Also using them in everyday ranch work. Bridgeman Land & Livestock Ltd. horses are bred to perform whether it is at a horse show, the rodeo arena, on the ranch, or riding down the trail.
The ranch consists of 2,100 acres of pasture, hay and grain land. Many of the pastures have been sown down to a blend of grass seed and alfalfa to allow the foals and their mothers quality grazing. Bridgeman Land & Livestock Ltd. also grows all their own oats, timothy and alfalfa to feed the horses. In 2002, Bridgeman Land & Livestock Ltd. was named the Little Saskatchewan Conservation District Conservation Farm Family of the Year. They strive to ranch in harmony with the wildlife and natural habitat and are very proud of the award and continue to improve their land management practices.
