Winning Ways helps folks find out more about the world and themselves. Inner peace, relaxation, connection with nature and your own inner spirit can be found at Winning Ways. It's a gate to a whole new world - all you need to do is walk through. You’re always welcome at Winning Ways.
Perhaps you have seen Google — Year In Search 2018, the short clip about how Google determined that many of those who searched on their engine last year, looked for “good.” According to the inspirational footage that was released by Google in Dec 2018, the most popular internet searches of 2018 were about “good” things and how we can be better people. Now, in the year 2019, the world seems to be ruled by bullies and ‘know-it-alls’; but there are also good folks out there who help their neighbours or total strangers, rescue animals and bring goodness to the world.
I suggest that each of us choose to look for good in the world and bring good in others’ lives. We can do this by watching the sunrise or sunset and marveling at the beauty, watching a youngster execute its first steps, reaching out to the bereaved with kindness, taking care of the animals, using the skills we gained in First Aid training, or simply ‘paying it forward’ at the Timmy’s drive-through. The opportunities for good are all around us. We can choose to take those moments and turn them into ‘good’ moments or ….. not.
May your good moments be plentiful, and your good works abound. May we all be a ‘good’ work in progress in 2019!

The world is now black and white.....lots of WHITE!
Looking for colours ........
Lots of snow, that came all in one storm, turned the world white with some black and an occasional splash of colour.

Winning Ways is a family owned and operated business located in the Northern Boreal Forest of (north) western Saskatchewan. This grey-wooded soil area was originally forested but now most of the land is cleared. However, Winning Ways has lease land that is a mixture of forest, lake shore, swamp and grassland which provides incredibly beautiful scenes for trail riders. The equine venture consists of several school horses, various types of tack and equipment for equine assisted wellness, lessons and trail rides. The ranch is home to about 80 commercial cows, their calves and about 20 head of horses.
Ranching has been a life style in this area for over 100 years, although this land has only been owned by the Friedrich family for 80 years. Great-great Grandpa and Grandma Friedrich immigrated to Saskatchewan in the late 1920’s and eventually became farmers in the Morin Creek area in the 1930’s. The ranch historian, Howard Brown, will be glad to entertain visitors with stories of a by-gone era. Harold and Evangeline had the land as a mixed farm for many years and it was only after they moved to Meadow Lake that the farming enterprises ceased and the ranch was born. Newton and Kelly operated the ranch between them. Since Newton’s passing, Kelly has continued the ranching operation but is moving toward the equine venture becoming the dominant enterprise at Winning Ways.
