Trailering

We offer experienced trailering services throughout Ontario. We have been trailering and handling horses in vast sizes, breeds, ages and disciplines for countless years. We work with local veterinarians to bring horses to clinics.


Our trailer is a 2 horse straight load. Warmblood size. On request the trailer can be transformed to a single large box stall (especially handy for trailering a mare with their foal). The trailer is also equipped with a tack room which is very handy for competitions.


So if you are planning on moving your horse, going out to competitions/clinics, in need of emergency trailering, or in need of any other trailering services please give us a call or email to book your next trip.

 

Lessons 

Balanced Dressage provides Basic English and Dressage lessons to ALL LEVELS and all ages 10+. From beginner riders to advanced, and riders with various background experiences with horses.

 

We have an excellent lesson program to serve you. All the Lessons are private sessions. This allows an atmosphere which lets the student and the coach to have one-on-one time, were there is an increased focus on the individual rider's abilities and needs.

 

The coaches are experienced and are able to help you resolve training issues with your own horses, or improve your individual skills. We are also able to help any student go to the competitive world.

 

Our lessons do not just center around on the riding portion of horseback riding but instead, there is a focus on the entire horseback riding experience. This includes but is not limited to: terminology that is commonly used in the “horse world”, the horse’s body parts and marking, grooming of the horse, tack and the proper care of tack.

 

Each young beginner will receive a booklet filled with different horse information. This booklet with often be used as a reference. It is require for these students to bring this booklet to each lesson.

 

We try to create a relaxing atmosphere where everyone can enjoy themselves, have fun and be safe. We promote the Balanced Dressage Spirit, were we encourage everyone at the barn to help each other out.

 

Our goal at Balanced Dressage is to contribute to the growth of the equestrian sport of Dressage. But more importantly to create a safe and fun environment where horse and rider can grow in their abilities physically, mentally and spiritually. While increasing one's knowledge and skills and creating never ending friendships.
