Welcome to Gemstone Equestrian, a family run equestrian centre located on 25 scenic acres just outside of the town of Uxbridge. From lessons and boarding to camps and birthday parties, we offer everything for the beginner to advanced rider and recreational or competitive rider ages 3 to adult. Safety is always our first concern, and therefore all of our camps and lessons have excellent staff to student ratios as well as a great group of horses that we are lucky to be able to work with. We also believe that everyone should have the opportunity to ride, as it is an incredible sport. As a result, we aim to keep our prices reasonable and pride ourselves on providing a flexible schedule. Whether you're looking to take a lesson once a month or every week, we will do our best to accommodate you.In addition to our regular services, we also offer a number of other activities such as Hallowe'en horse costume contests, drill team, an annual potluck barbeque and more. As always, we're happy to answer any of your questions and hear your comments, so please feel free to email us at email@example.com
All students are taught by experienced coaches
Rosemary Richardson and Sarah Thomas
Rosemary started her riding career at the age of five and her love of horses has only grown over the years. While her favourite activity is heading out on the trails, she's also had extensive training in hunter, jumper and western gaming. She has the most fun working with her jumper students on creative and challenging courses and starting adult students from the ground up. Her Degree from York University in Psychology and history in counseling anxiety disorders also makes her uniquely qualified to work with extremely nervous riders.
Sarah was a reluctant rider at first, but the riding bug bit at the age of nine thanks to a little pony named Candy and has never looked back! While she started out in the hunter ring, she was introduced to dressage at the age of 14 and has competed at Schooling, Trillium and National level (now Bronze, Silver and Gold).
Every rider presents a new teaching challenge and the best lessons are when working with enthusiastic new riders who are interested in not only just learning how to ride, but about the whole world that horses have to offer.
