Wake Robin Farm has been offering exceptional riding lesson programs for children, youth and adults since 2007.
We are proud members and supporters of:
Our philosophy is simple.... equestrian sport begins with learning a solid foundation of riding skills, equine knowledge and good sportsmanship from the ground up. This same philosophy has been the building block for all of our programs. Our farm culture continually grows and evolves to ensure a healthy balance for both the recreational and competitive rider alike.
Our instructors and staff are selected specifically for the positive energy, patience and wealth of equine experience they bring to our programs. Lessons are structured around the Long-Term Equestrian Development framework as developed by Ontario Equestrian, the governing body of equine sport in Ontario. These programs are athlete-centered, coach-driven and supported by an integrated sport system.

The safety of our students is always our top priority. Our instructors follow stringent safety protocols and teaching practices to ensure rider and horse safety. Students learn about safety around horses and barn rules right from day one.
Whether you're interested in recreational or competitive riding Wake Robin Farm encourages all riders to have fun and experience the many joys the world of horses has to offer.
