Nestled on the Atlantic Ocean, the ranch is located near the small village of St. Andrews, just outside of Antigonish, Nova Scotia. Situated along the South River, the picturesque rolling green hills and miles of wooded trails make it a horse lover's dream. The natural grass and forested gullies are an ideal place for foals to spend their first years of life. Our pastures are built on tiled fields, which drain off excess water and keeps mud to a minimum, allowing us to keep horses outside all year round. Read Our Philosophy to learn more.
