About Prime Equine

Prime Equine began as a boutique boarding facility in  Saskatoon, SK, Canada, offering specialized and individual care to your unicorn.

Since 2017, Prime Equine has expanded to include a full complement of equine-based services including horse owner education and equine business services. 


About the Owner - Addy Stewart

A jack of all trades is a master of none, but surely is better than a master of one!

I consider myself an all-around equine expert. From nutrition to hoof care, body work to medical intervention, the combination of experience and education I have gathered over the last 30 years is exhaustingly cumulative!

Through Prime Equine, I educate on all topics from hoof care, nutrition, basic training, horse husbandry & equine behaviour to horse keeping and donkey care.

My goal with Prime Equine is to create happier and healthier horses through challenging the status-quo of horse care.

Through trials and tribulations with almost every horse I’ve owned; I painstakingly have taken each tough lesson learned and turned them into blessings. From major issues such as dysfunctional TMJ joints, double DDFT lacerations, heaves, facet joint arthritis, navicular, founder, disc bulges; to osteophytes, soft tissue damage and compensatory posture, I has seen a lot of what there is to see that can go wrong with our equine athletes.

Each lesson I have learned has created the foundation of Prime Equine. My experience in equine ailments led me to obtaining my Equine First Aid & Advanced Wilderness First Aid Instructor Certifications from Equi-Health Canada in 2017. I spent three years teaching horse owners the skills of how to respond to an emergency before retiring to focus on a whole-horse approach to horse owner education.


In 2020 I began recognizing there were horse owners out there who like me were going through the “school of hard knocks” when it came to horse keeping. Since then I have focused my business on educating horse owners on all the different nooks and crannies of keeping horses healthy.

In addition to being a retired EFA Instructor, I hold multiple certifications including Equine Kinesiology Taping  Craniosacral Technique & Laser therapies, Medical Intuition Certification, and Equine Energy Medicine Level 1 & 2 from Twila Hayes. In addition, I have completed multiple courses from Dr. Eleanor Kellon including:
• NRC Plus
• Nutrition for Performance Horses
• Nutrition as a Therapy
• Cushings & IR Nutrition
• Arthritis & Other Lameness
• Reading Radiographs

I am a self-taught barefoot trimmer and hoof health advocate, after having to take the rehabilitation of my “navicular” diagnosed horse littlebit into my own hands in 2018. After successfully rehabilitating her, I took on the trimming of all of my horses and donkeys and a small number of outside horses that resulted in numerous case studies of improved hooves and soundness. In 2021 I developed “Hoof Care For Horse Owners” to help educate owners in assessing hoof health as well as having constructive conversations with their trimmers and farriers.

I do 75% of my own equine body work after attending numerous clinics with Dave Elliott, reading rehabilitation and anatomy books and watching videos from the likes of Manolo Mendez and Dr. Kerry Ridgeway. I compliment my “prehab” with check ups every two months with a certified osteopath or body worker, and run microcurrent therapies on my horses every week.

I believe that horse owners have a responsibility to be able to hold an educated conversation with all of the equine professionals in their horses life, from their farrier, body worker, vet, dentist, nutritionist and more, as well as encouraging horse owners to obtain second opinions and question answers they receive, by promoting the fact that no one knows their horse better than they do, and we are the only advocate they have!

Prime Equine is located on Treaty 6 territory, the traditional lands of the Cree, Dene, Nakota, Saulteaux, and Ojibwe and the homeland of the Métis Nation. Prime Equine is dedicated to ensuring that the spirit of Reconciliation and Treaty 6 is honoured and respected in building relationships going forward.
