Trail Rides & Bed & Breakfast on Beautiful Vancouver Island

COVID-19 Policy and ‘Action Plan’

We have implemented the following policy and so will not be offering any Accommodations or Trail rides, Lessons etc during the Pandemic.

All levels of government in Canada have publicly and repeatedly communicated that everyone in the country should be practicing social distancing to reduce their exposure to other people and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau declared that “all Canadians should stay home.” Therefore, EC and the PTSOs recommend that facilities that host equestrian-related activities only allow personnel needed to take care of the facilities and our equine partners on their premises. This includes facility owners, facility managers, equine caretakers, providers of equine-related essential services (e.g. veterinarians, farriers), and boarders or owners providing equine-related minimum standards of care*. Non-essential personnel, including students, friends, family, the public, and boarders or owners who are not providing equine-related minimum standards of care*, are encouraged to remain off the premises.

*Individuals are to continue operating under the minimum standards of care outlined in the National Farm Animal Care Council Code of Practice to ensure the feeding, care and movement of equines.

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.

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!
