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 horses in different disciplines, gaming, other competitions; and training.

 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!

Pinewood Stables has been in business for over 20 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.

Please NoteWe are a Lesson and Boarding stable.  We do not offer trail rides or rent any of our lesson horses for people to ride.

The Weather is getting warmer and Pinewood Stable is open!

We are already booking lessons and small events. Please note that due to the COVID restrictions, we will not offer large group lessons until further notice.
