Beginner, Intermediate & Advanced Coaching
Our goal is to help riders develop self-confidence and independence through horsemanship. Lessons for beginners can be structured in a Private or Group. If you are a new rider or under 12, our staff will assist you in tacking and un-tacking your horse. We will walk you through how to handle a horse on the ground so that you develop a safe and confident approach to groundwork.
Coaching for more advanced riders are available either on your own horse (we have Boarding in our new facility) or on one of our well-schooled horses. Students with more experience are welcome to join the lesson program and in addition, are welcome to explore our leasing program or progress through to the Meadows Show Team.

This is the team you want be a part of!
We are new to Toronto and have been looking for a barn for over six months now and I can't explain our relief once we finally found the Meadows. The beautiful facilities got our attention, but the staff and coaches really sealed the deal.
If you're new to either the area or the horse world, this is the team that you want to show you the way."
