Riding Lessons At Venture Stables

Venture Stables offers lessons for every kind of learner from a Beginner level to an Advanced level, ages 4 to 104. We teach the basics of Western & English horsemanship; from safe on the ground horse handling skills to a well rounded, confident riding experience ensuring that our riders and their mounts meet their full potential. Our instructors can coach you on your own horse, or you can take a lesson on one of our well mannered and safe school horses. Lessons take place in our 60×120 indoor arena, or our wonderful 100×200 outdoor arena; weather permitting.

Tiny Tot Tuesday's At Venture Stables

Welcome to the horse world!

Riding is also a brilliant way to bring shy children out of their shell!

A lesson designed to give your little one in the age of 3-6 years a “leg up” in the horse world. Once your horseback riders progress past this stage, they enter our Ready Rider Program. Lessons are 30 minutes in total and consists of grooming, pony care and riding time.

Tiny Tot lessons are a great way to get your young rider confident in the saddle.

Fun And Comfortable Horseback Rides!

Friendly staff and horses (and cats, lots of them). I went there during the winter and they have an inside arena, I did not feel cold. They teach you how to saddle the horse and help you build confidence when riding them. I am heavy and I was worried about the horses, but they have huge animals. Highly recommend the place.

Our experience was phenomenal! The owner and staff were absolutely fantastic and went above and beyond to accommodate my son, who has special needs. We were able to have the best ride and feel completely safe the entire time. Many, many, thanks to an awesome crew and beautiful horses who gave us the gift of an unforgettable day! I highly recommend.

Great place to ride!! Great horses and people. Made us feel right at home. Love all the pet bunnies and of course Gloria the giant pig. Took us at the last minute on a sunset ride as we were leaving the next day , very accommodating. Fun time and made new friends on PEI.

Venture Stables was an amazing place to go. Wonderful people, great horses and one really amazing experience. I would recommend this place to anyone. We went out on a two hour trail ride for experienced people and I loved every second of it. So impressed!
