Our private tranquil 50 acre farm is located minutes north of Kanata in Dunrobin, Ontario. We offer riding lessons to a limited number of students (beginner and more advanced) who are passionate equestrians determined to become knowledgeable horse people and effective empathetic riders. 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. All of our coaches are Equine Canada certified in their teaching discipline. Private or semi-private lessons, group practice rides, leasing, competition, horsemanship sessions, barn chores and themed workshops the are just some of our strategies for ensuring that riders advance in riding ability and knowledge as they spend time at SkyLine Farm.
We invite you to contact SkyLine Farm for further information if you are a rider or beginner who is committed to learning correct technical equestrian skills from the ground up. Our philosophy is that riders who have correctly consolidated their basic riding skills will continue to benefit from this education throughout their entire equestrian career. For this is the basis of a harmonious and trusting connection between horse and rider as well as the stepping stone to more advanced technical development. And most importantly, throughout it all, your horse will thank you for your diligence. Over the past 8 years we have successfully mentored 6 EC Instruction of Beginner candidates in English and Western. As well, we have prepared countless students for their English (Levels 1 to 8) and Western Rider (Levels 1 – 4 and Basic Training) who have Met or Exceeded Expectations as assessed by outside EC certified examiners.
