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.   

The wind of heaven is that which blows between

a horse's ears.  ~Arabian Proverb

  2020 SUMMER

​          Upcoming Events​

Postponed until further notice

      The Armstrong Equine Massage

  4-Day Certification Program is over!        We would like to congratulate Pinewood Stable's own    Riding Instructor, Beth Retzlaff, for becoming certified    in equine massage!  To become certified, Beth had to not only         pass the written portion of the testing procedure, but she also had to

    correctly demonstrate the techniques and skills she learned during   

    the intensive clinic. We are so proud of her!

  ​                        Congratulations Beth!! 

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.

Pinewood Stable is now OPEN for 

the season!  However, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be offering large group lessons until further notice.  We will still schedule private lessons.
