Pinewood Stables has been in business for over 10 years. We have been giving lessons and training horses for over 5 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 4-H Horse Project, 4- Horse Bowl Team, and Riverbend Riders Club because we believe in the future of kids and these amazing animals.

Pinewood Stables was started by the Hilligoss Family in 2000. Our name came from a fond memory of the Owner/Founder, Linda'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.   

The wind of heaven is that which blows between

a horse's ears.  ~Arabian Proverb
