Our attractive 86 acre farm lies nestled among rolling hills near St. Agatha, Ontario, just minutes away from Kitchener- Waterloo. We purchased the farm in 1964 and, for the first 15 years, raised cattle and horses. In 1979, the indoor arena was built and the entire barn was converted to horse stalls. Since then we have provided a complete equestrian facility with good stabling, indoor and outdoor arenas and a riding school with English instruction.
We have one Highland cow named Wanda and two Highland-Red Angus cross heifers named Mary and Clover.
The farm also is home to one cat and two Shelties, Ike and Koko(passed).
Banbury farm has earned a solid reputation for quality English riding instruction in a safe environment for over 40 years.
We use the “balanced seat” as the foundation of our instruction, both on the flat and over fences to develop basic to advanced riding skills. We primarily cater to the once-a-week rider and focus on teaching the basics. Our more advanced riders do get some exposure to competition in hunter and dressage.
Our facility is open year round. The indoor arena has excellent footing and lighting. We offer an outdoor sand ring, a small cross-country course and pleasure hacking on the property.
We have a maximum of 4 riders in a group lesson. Private lessons are available. English riding lessons are available adults only.
For people who would like to spend some time on horseback, Banbury Farm is an excellent place to learn, or get started.
