Horse Boarding, Trail Rides, Lessons & Ranch Vacations

We have the privilege of living on a Wonderful 125-Acre Ranch with a Panoramic View of Mount Arrowsmith and Mount Moriarity; which we enjoy sharing with other Horse-Lovers!

Located 15 minutes from North Nanaimo, five minutes from Parksville we have the best of all worlds. Young riders learn to ride their first pony; older riders can satisfy their dreams as well – with our experienced instructors. If you are not a rider yet and would like to be; you will learn how to care for a horse and ride at your own pace.

For those of you who would like to be at a friendly laid-back place and join in lots of trail rides, this is the barn for you.

Trail Rides

Bring your friends and join us on magnificent trails starting on the ranch and proceeding out over hills to Englishman River. Our trail rides consist of a lesson plus a trail ride for a much more enjoyable experience!
