Trail Rides, Training, Lessons & Boarding

Windsong Ranch

Windsong Ranch is a family-owned business which began in 2004. Gord and Heather Sturm have been involved with horses most of their lives and are passionate about sharing their knowledge and expertise with everyone who comes to their beautiful 100-acre property which includes a modern 22-stall barn, both indoor and outdoor arenas, and extensive trails through fields and woods.

Trail Rides

At Windsong Ranch, our trails are a beautiful mix of hardwood and softwood forests, rolling hills, streams and fields with stunning views of the Queens Valley which runs from Chatsworth to Meaford. A couple hundred acres to explore! With a maximum of 5 riders per ride, you will truly enjoy this memorable experience!

No Experience Necessary!

We welcome horse enthusiasts of all ages to come and experience the Windsong Way of Western Riding! It’s all about the connection with a 4-legged partner. Gord and Heather teach the subtleties of Western Horsemanship that can actually benefit any relationship – animal or human! Setting the bar in the industry, Windsong owners select the appropriate mount for the personality and experience of each rider. During a brief orientation in our indoor arena, we will give you the necessary training before heading out on a guided trail ride. Children and adults alike will feel comfortable and confident with our well-trained, experienced and happy horses!

Excellent spot to go for horse back riding. The staff did a great job teaching us about horses and how to ride. Riding the horses through the river and woods was amazing and would definitely recommend this place to everyone!

My boyfriend (1st time rider) and I went on a private trail ride with Gord & couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Gord and Heather are so kind and helpful & the horses were amazingly well behaved. They make sure you feel comfortable on the horse & the trails and views are beautiful. Would 100% recommend this for beginners or experienced riders!

Amazing, amazing experience. If I lived closer, I would ride here everyday. Gord is the horse whisperer. I learned so much about horses and riding. Gord tailored the ride to our interests and our experience level (which included some loping). This is the best trail ride I’ve ever been on. We did the 3-hour experience. We will be back! Thank you for a great day!

We loved everything about this experience. We spent some time getting familiar with our horses which made us all feel comfortable and confident even though some of us were first time riders. It is obvious that Heather and Gordy are passionate about what they do and that they love their horses. Highly recommend!

My daughters and I had a wonderful experience thanks to Gordy and Heather. The horses are exceptionally well trained and in excellent condition. The barn is spotless. This is not your normal “western” experience. This couple are professionals. You will learn about equine behaviour and how to best interact and bond with your horse.

I can’t say enough about this ranch and Gord and Heather the owners of Windsong Ranch. Their trail rides go beyond the regular trail ride. Always teaching you whether in the woods, on the trail or in the arena. The rides are always fun and the views are spectacular ! Through the fields, through the woods, over a bridge or through the river…

My friend and I came for our second trail ride (along with her husband). As before it was amazing. Heather and Gordy are fantastic at what they do and really care about making sure everyone has a wonderful ride. Their patient but firm teaching sets you up for your time out on the trails… hoping to make this a summer tradition!!

Windsong is the ultimate trail ride experience and I highly recommend it!…  I’ve ridden lots of trail ride excursions at other places all over Ontario and Windsong is a refreshing approach and memorable experience. … If you’re a beginner or experienced rider revisiting the joy of horse back riding, this is the place to be!

Windsong Ranch offers the best trail-ride format ever. You spend time getting to know your horse on the ground and ride in an arena over pretend trail obstacles (like a bridge) before you head out on the trail… I was blessed with a great day, a nice group of riders, and a sweet horse.

We were looking for a nice trail, ride out in the country with a variety of scenery and found this place was perfect. We would highly recommend it to those looking to learn about horses and the best way to interact with them… What we thought was going to be a short trail ride turned out to be a 2 1/2 hour memorable experience.
