Ontario, Canada
We now have equestrian trails in our premier Provincial Park - Algonquin. There is about 3 days of fairly rough riding with lovely views and lots of wildlife. Best time to visit is from mid-August til late September.
Call Algonquin Park at 705-633-5538 or FAX 705-633-5581 for more details. Campsites are primitive - no stalls water available for horses in a pond but you have to bring your own drinking water although you can tank up at the MNR office just down the road. Camping fees were $5.00/ night but may change this season? These trails are not for the faint of heart! Another spot is Freedom Farm in Erinsville, Ontario. They offer lots of trails, hot showers, stalls, even beds if you want. This is a campground for horsepeople only and is opened from May to October.
Equestrian Camping area is located near the Park's "East Gate".
You need a modestly priced camping permit available inside the Visitor's Center there - the entrance to the Equestrian area is unmarked but within sight of the East Gate.

It offers a great look at our Canadian Shield landscape. They can be contacted for rates etc. at 613-478-6562 or 1-800-997-9941.

Sandaraska Park
Sandaraska Park on the Ganaraska forest in Ponty Pool. This campground has outdoor stalls and also allows you to build an electric corral or highline. Complete access to the Ganaraska forest, and private trails.
The best thing about this campground is that is virtually bug free compared to most campgrounds in Ontario in Summer.

Beaver Creek Farm, Kearney, Ontario, contact Cindy Filmore
We are just starting to offer overnight accommodations for horses and their riders. We offer remote or roadside horsesites (your choice), with water available for horses and people, miles of trails (with or without maps and/or guides), and lots of room.
The trails follow old logging roads, hiking trails, and offer a great view of the area - we are only minutes away from Algonquin Park (we have 2 gates to the park within a 45 min. drive, and both available by trail if you wish to ride there!).
We are only 15 minutes from Hwy #11, turning east on Hwy 518. We are about 30 minutes from Huntsville, Ontario (our town is Kearney, Ont., if you look for us on a map!)
As part of our 'first year' celebrations, we are holding an OCTRA sanctioned Competitive Trail Ride on Sunday, September 13, 1998.
Anyone interested in trying our new sites or trails, please
contact Cindy Filmore phone 705 636 7155.

Maple Ponds Equestrian Center
Williamstown, Ontario: Maple Ponds Equestrian Center is in the process of creating an Equestrian facility, designed exclusively for Riders wanting to experience the joys of riding on Groomed Trails in a Private Forest, and on quiet Country Roads owned by the Township.
We’re also in the process of developing a low level Cross Country Event Course and a low level Natural Jump Course.
By this June (2007), we intend to be up and running (subject to weather), and will feature several miles of our own Groomed Trails in a gorgeous forest setting, surrounded by an abundance of wildlife, including beautiful deer.

And at night, while sitting at the campfire, or tucked-in to sleep, the thrilling and chilling howl of coyotes will remind you of just how close to nature you really are.
To make certain that you don’t miss out, because our availability will be relatively limited, please consider making tentative reservations for you and your horse this coming summer (2007).
