Horseback riding in the Magnetawan Area is a unique way to see nature up close. Experience a wonderful partnership between the animal and human world to help you get out and enjoy the wildflowers, trees and birds. There are two stables in our area to serve riders. Riverside Farm has a mixture of size and types of horses from the little Shetland pony for the kids up to the Appaloosas, Arab and Quarter horses for all levels of riders. Clear Lake Farm has exclusively Icelandic Horses. In addition to the three basic gaits: walk, trot and canter/gallop, the Icelandic Horse offers two more gaits, the tolt and the pace. The tolt is a remarkably smooth four beat gait, in which the horse moves its legs in the same way as when walking. It can be as slow as a walk and as fast as a gallop. The horse always has one foot on the ground. Both stables offer trail rides in the beautiful Magnetawan area on wooded trails or back roads. Try riding, we think you will want to do it again.
