Trail Rides, Training, Lessons & Boarding

Trail Riding

We are OPEN for Trail Riding from May to October
Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays
BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

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. There are 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!
