Welcome to Rideauwood Farm

Rideauwood Farm, is a 125 acre property located 35 miles south of Ottawa, Ontario along the historic Rideau River, a UNESCO World Heritage site. It consists of Rideauwood Dressage Training Centre and Rideauwood Semen Imports, the Canadian importer of frozen semen for some of the most prestigious European stallion stations. Rideauwood Farm is located in the heart of the picturesque, serene Rideau Valley, and is home to such wildlife as osprey, otter, racoon, black bear, porcupine, white tailed deer, coyote, eastern wolf, heron, and many other bird and animal species. These species are sometimes seen from horseback while on the miles of trails that exist through the open pasture and old growth forest located on the farm.

The mandate of Rideauwood Farm is three fold:

  • To provide premier dressage training for clients and high performance dressage horses with a focus on competition.
  • To offer North American horse buyers the opportunity of buying European quality horses in North America.
  • To improve the quality and depth of warmblood breeding in North America by offering breeders access to the world's best stallions, and just as importantly, by offering breeders access to first class training to establish a foundation for their young horses, and an avenue to market their horses.
