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.
The lesson program at Belle Wood is grouped by riding ability, providing the best possible learning experience. Our small lesson program at Belle Wood ensures each rider gets the most out of their lesson by having more time with our coaches.
Lessons start promptly and students must arrive 45 minutes prior to their lesson in order to properly prepare. Teaching proper horsemanship skills is of the most important at Belle Wood.
Lessons run on a monthly basis with new enrollments available at the beginning of the month. For a student looking to gain more experience, Belle Wood Equestrian has multiple horses available for leases.
Safety for horse and rider are always our priority at Belle Wood. All beginner students start in private lessons to develop confidence and the ability to stop, start and steer!
Our riding school offers day, evening and weekend lessons, all year round.
Ages five and up are welcome!

Volunteer Program At Belle Wood
Saturday volunteering has always been a big part of Belle Wood! This program is FREE and is a great way for Belle Wood lesson students to learn all about what it takes to run a farm, learn about horsemanship and help with lessons!
Starting in December, we are going to give ALL volunteers ONE complementary lesson on the first Sunday of the following month after the completion of volunteering for FOUR Saturdays for 4.5 Hours each.
