Facilities

Over 120 well-schooled horses and ponies call Saddlewood home and campers return year after year to ride
and care for their favourite four-legged friends.

 

BARNS

Horses are stabled in one of three barns containing box stalls and separate tack rooms. Each box stall is labeled with the horse's name and each horse has its own saddle and bridle.

Cross Country Courses

There are three cross-country courses on Saddlewood's property. An entry level course (2'6"), a pre-training course (3'), and a training course (3'3"), as well as small, practice, cross-country, teaching fences designed to give campers their first taste of riding cross-country

Throughout the hundreds of acres of Saddlewood land, groomed riding trails have been developed to provide campers with interesting and challenging trail rides.

Indoor Arena

The large, bright indoor arena is 70' x 200', large enough for a full jumping course or a 20m x 60m dressage test. Two lessons at a time can be taught in the arena on rainy days and the attached, heated viewing lounge can be used for stable management lectures and other horse related activities.


Our Cabins

Campers sleep in one of three, two-story, chalet-type residences. The upper level and the lower level of each residence are two separate cabins. Groups of 8-14 campers make up a cabin and each of the six cabin groups are arranged by age. A counsellor lives in each cabin with her campers. Campers sleep in metal bunk beds with new foam mattresses. Each cabin has a four piece bathroom, plenty of hot water and electric heat.
