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.
