About Rideauwood

Located 35 miles south of Ottawa along the beautiful Rideau River, Rideauwood Farm is a full dressage training facility offering a friendly atmosphere with high standards of training for both students and dressage horses of all levels from Training to Grand Prix. It is also the Canadian importer and distributor of frozen semen for many of the largest and highest quality private stallion stations in Europe, and a breeding facility with a high quality breeding program.

It is a superb facility with 25 large stalls, 20m x 60m indoor arena, a quarantine barn, 20m x 60m outdoor sand ring, 6 horse hotwalker, 20m lungeing ring, individual turn out paddocks, as well as several large pastures for broodmares and young stock.

It is not just the high quality horse facilities that define Rideauwood – it is the natural beauty of the land itself which is a very important component of the Rideauwood experience. With over 1 km of waterfront on the historic Rideau Canal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, 125 acres of pasture land, hay fields, old growth forest and trails, and an abundance of bird, animal, and fish wildlife it is a pristine country setting only 45 minutes from downtown Ottawa.
