Pinewood Stable is proud to endorse 


   We highly recommend both FULL FLEX'S massage

    and kinesio taping to alleviate stiffness and sore     

   muscles in our equine athletes.  We have seen the 

   difference.  Just ask JT.  He loves getting a massage!


  " We taped JT's back along the longissimus and lumbar to promote back

    relaxation and support. He looks good in yellow!"


Pinewood Stables was started by the Hilligoss Family in 2000. Our name came from a fond memory of the owner/founder's parents' hometown of Pinewood, Ontario. We started out as a small hobby farm just for our own few horses, then we grew into something bigger as the family got involved in 4-H and Saddle Club. As the family's interest and knowledge grew, they became involved in more horse-related activities  such as showing in different disciplines, gaming and other competitions; and training.   

Our Story......


    Have a horse but no place to ride?  Pinewood Stable

   has a 100' x 300' grass arena, a 120' x 220' outdoor

   sand arena and a 60' x 104' indoor arena available

   for rent.  Check back soon right here for pricing!

Pinewood Stables has been in business for over 15 years. We have been boarding horses, giving lessons and/or training horses for 15 years. We pride ourselves on the quality of care every horse receives while at Pinewood Stables; all horses are treated as if they are our own. Our instructors provide quality instruction in different disciplines at  reasonable rates.  We are proud supporters of the local 4H Horse Project, 4H Horse Bowl Team, and Saddle Clubs because we believe in the future of kids and these amazing animals.
