About Us

Western Fortunes Inc. is an exciting new limited incentive program founded in Canada and comprised of breeders united in the breeding of barrel horses and enhancing the sport. We believe in celebrating Stallion Owners, Breeders and Owners by giving back! We realize that the Breeder and the Owner is what keeps the Barrel Racing industry alive! Make sure you choose a WF Stallion and let’s bring fortune to Canada!


Western Fortunes is an exciting new barrel horse breeder’s incentive program, aimed at promoting a different sector of the barrel horse industry, known as the “Breeder’s Incentive” this program pays:

➢ Stallion owners
➢ Offspring owners
➢ Mare owners (Breeders)


We believe that quality Mares crossing with quality Stallions result in quality Offspring and by recognizing the value of the mare this will encourage breeders to support Western Fortunes Stallions. We will limit our stallion enrollment promoting Quality over Quantity. We are open to interest from stallion owners across the Canada and the United States. We will also be working with event promoters to add bonus money to competitions so that everyone benefits!

Founding Team


Linda, an Alberta native started riding at the tender age of three, in the English discipline but her need for speed eventually won out and her love affair with barrel racing began. Linda has trained and competed on several different horses, earning her multiple Alberta and Canadian Quarter Horse High Point Awards and Championships. Now retired from competition, Linda has applied her vast knowledge of pedigrees and her passion for barrel horses to her barrel horse breeding program which she runs with her husband, Larry and their Bouvier des Flanders, Madison at their acreage near Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta.


Cheryl Daines is a name that speaks for itself in the Canadian Barrel Horse industry! Born and raised in Central Alberta, Cheryl has raised, trained and competed on some of the best barrel horses Canada has ever seen.

Cheryl has had a lifelong love affair with barrel racing. Starting as a youngster at local events, Cheryl quickly moved into professional competition, earning many championships along the way, she remains actively involved; supporting her talented daughter Sydney to compete on a horse Cheryl raised and trained.
