Instructor Bio

Dwayne McArthur has been a teamster starting, training and driving horses the old fashion way for over 15 years. As new ways, thoughts and processes have progressed over the years, he has been introducing them into the program & courses here at  the College. When dealing with 1200 - 2200 lbs draft horses, Dwayne is a believer that one needs to be firm, while using as little pressure as possible. The safety of his students, as well as his horses, is his main priority.

Dwayne supplies his own horses for the program at Olds College, he has 7 teams for all different levels of drivers and teamsters.

When Dwayne is teaching at the college, his style is the same as when back home on the ranch  - no 'fancy stuff' or showing. He does sleigh and wagon rides, as well as field work and logging at home, and brings this experience and knowledge to share in the classroom.
