Equestrian

Would you rather be riding? You've come to the right place.

Ontario features many public trails that are open for horseback riding. While most of them are in southern Ontario, you'll also find some in the north. Start with the Dundas Valley Conservation Area, Ganaraska Forest and the Haliburton Forest.

You'll also find equestrian trails in the Hardwood Hills, Limerick Forest and the Northumberland County Forest. Throughout the province you'll find numerous stables and equestrian centres where you can take lessons or enroll in a full program. They generally have trails nearby.

In Northern Ontario, you can experience backcountry and foothills including wilderness horseback angling adventures. The equestrian community reminds riders that a helmet must be worn for all types of riding activity. Photo taken by Laura Jones, Ontario Equestrian Federation
