The Riding Program at Belle Wood

The Lesson Program at Belle Wood is geared towards Boarders/Lessees and Competition Students

Although the equestrian sport is measured by individual accomplishments, at Belle Wood Equestrian we promote a supportive team environment. We place a strong focus on proper and efficient rider development. Our coaches work with our lesson clientele to build a solid foundation in equitation and horsemanship. We establish goals with our clients and work towards the end result, whether that is to compete amongst Ontario’s best or simply feel comfortable in the saddle. 


Lessons start promptly and students must arrive 45 minutes prior to their lesson in order to properly prepare. Teaching proper horsemanship skills and safety around horses as well as proper equitation is of the utmost importance at Belle Wood. 


Lessons run on a monthly basis with new enrollments available at the beginning of the month. We are currently only offering lessons to Novice, Intermediate and Advanced riders interested in joining our show program.

Due to our program being more intimate, please note we may not have a horse suitable for all heights & weights.
