Horseback Riding

Put your feet in the stirrups, grab the reins and see the beauty of Ontario on horseback.

Horseback trail riding

Choose from two-hour, half-day, full-day and overnight rides and packages at places like Horseback Adventures in the Waterloo area or ride through gorgeous Niagara scenery with Horseplay Niagara.  Plan a unique equestrian getaway at Whinny Acres in Beaver Valley or live the life of a wrangler at Rawhide Adventures in Shelburne.

With over 2000 horse boarding and breeding farms, 110 kilometres of rideable trails, and a host of equestrian events, the Headwaters region is definitely Ontario’s horse country.

For a unique adventure, try winter trail riding, and keep your camera close for great wildlife viewing.
