Big Island Stables is a family owned and operated horse boarding facility located minutes from Sherwood Park. The Ostrem family purchased the stable last year (2017) and have been continuously working on improvements. The barn, the arenas, and the pastures have undergone many changes to create a more safe and friendly environment for all patrons and their horses.

Kassandra has many years of experience working with horses. She grew up on a horse breeding farm in Northern British Columbia and has worked at a number of equine facilities. These facilities include ranches, training barns, race tracks, and other boarding stables. Kassandra enjoyed participating in a variety of disciplines ranging from english and western riding, jumping, endurance, trail riding, with barrel racing being her favourite. In 2015, she completed a six-week intensive course in equine massage at Prairie Wind EMT in Loveland, Colorado.
