DreamCatcher Farm is set on 110 acres of rolling hills and sand rings. At DreamCatcher Farm there are lots of areas to ride including 3 large 200 X 300 feet outdoor rings and an 80 X 120 foot indoor arena as well as miles of trails. Our coaches are certified through Equine Canada and Sport Canada and bring years of experience and enthusiasm to all the programs. We have a variety of levels of horses and ponies that we use in our programs that are safe but challenge the students as they progress with their riding skills.
Our philosophy at DreamCatcher Farm is to leave our clients a little more enriched through experiences with horses. All our programs at the farm strive to create experiences that develop technical skills and are fun, and educational. Through interaction with horses, students learn not only how to ride but develop confidence and gain skills in communication, problem solving, and leadership.
In order to execute our philosophy we strive to provide facilities and services that exceed our clients expectations. Being friendly and courteous as well as knowledgeable is paramount to our success. Keeping the facilities is good repair, immaculate and visually appealing is the second part to the formula for success and the third is offering programs and services that are unique, challenging, fun and fulfilling to our clients.
