A 15 minute drive from the Wesley Clover Park, in Ottawa, brings you to our tranquil 50 acre, 20 horse farm located in Dunrobin, Ontario. Although our farm is small, its from a big heart that we share over 40 years of horse ownership and experience with our students; proof that some of us never outgrow our love of all things horses. Not only are our instructors and mentors passionate about riding and teaching they are all EC certified coaches in their teaching discipline. The EC Learn to Ride Program is the basis for our English or Western riding lesson program so that students may achieve their Rider Level certificates and/or also work towards EC Instructor or Coach certifications if they wish. Private or semi-private lessons, group practice rides, leasing, competition, horsemanship sessions, riding to music, barn chores and the are just some of our strategies for ensuring that riders advance in riding ability and knowledge as they spend time at SkyLine Farm.
