Helmed by Equine Canada Level III coach Lindsay Mahon, Raynham Stables’ staff of certified instructors deftly guides pupils of all ages through private horseback-riding lessons tailored to individual abilities. The 1.5-hour one-on-one session kicks off with a 30-minute introduction to the basics of grooming and tacking a carrot-fuelled auto, including how to dress the steed in full riding regalia. Once neigh-sayers have been suited up, riders settle into the saddle for 30 minutes of mounted instruction tailored to address individual skill sets, interests, and desires to recreate centaur-heavy dream sequences. Nascent pony operators learn essential equine choreography such as walking, cantering, and trotting, and instructors can opt to run more advanced students through the gravity-flouting rigors of jumping lessons. Back at the stables, a 30-minute tutorial focuses on untacking and stowing away equipment. Raynham Stables requires that all lesson-learners don a helmet (provided by stables), swaddle feet in boots with a half-inch to one-inch heel (provided by stables, if necessary), wear gloves, and cloak limbs in long pants.

Raynham Stables

Though its main draws include sprawling, verdant grounds and a sand-bottom stadium ring, Raynham Stables is well equipped to serve equestrian offerings all year long. Two expansive indoor riding arenas beckon cold-weather guests to perch atop gentle, reliable horses well trained in the ways of trotting, jumping, galloping, and saying nay to performance-enhancing carrots. Working closely with his experienced staff, Equine Canada Level 3 coach Lindsay Mahon takes the reins of the establishment and its lessons, which encourage students to develop into confident competitors and show-team riders.

Raynham Stables also offers pony parties for ages 4–adult with optional add-ons such as horse-themed goodie bags and craft sessions. Summer camps and year-long riding lessons coach riders on trotting, dressage, cross-country riding, and jumps of various heights.
