Our Horses

Every one of our horses are part of an extended family here at Niagara Riding Stables, and like family members, they are treated with the utmost care and affection. Above all else, our mission has always been to work in partnership with these wonderful creatures. Come and see the difference in our horses for yourself. Just like our location, they are head and shoulders above the rest.
