Welcome to Old Orchard Farm

About Old Orchard Farm

Located between Milton and Guelph on the First Line of Nassagaweya, Old Orchard Farm is a teaching and boarding facility operated by the family of Linda Hale and George Daunt since 1987. Come visit us. We’d love to show you around!

We are members in good standing of Ontario Equestrian Federation, Equine Canada, the Canadian Thoroughbred Horse Society, the Ontario Hunter-Jumper Association and the Association of Riding Establishments of Ontario.

We are an active, family-oriented barn priding ourselves on delivering specialized programs to meet the unique needs of each individual rider. Our goal is to assist each of our students to attain their equine dreams and aspirations, guiding them to be the best they can be while emphasizing fun, friends and sportsmanship.

Old Orchard Farm provides a wide range of opportunities to riders of all ages. Some enjoy a quiet hack along the surrounding cornfields and through the nearby forests. Others are focused on serious competition in the “A” Circuit.

One of our most popular opportunities is the OOF Schooling Series consisting of five shows held annually between May and September. All riders welcome. Please click here for more info.

For those seeking experience in horsemanship, OOF offers a working student program. This provides the opportunity to learn barn management and horse care in a supervised setting while earning points that are applied like cash to anything offered at OOF.

Old Orchard Farm would like to announce …

The First Annual I Ride 4 Erika Hunter Equitation Medal class!

This is a unique opportunity to be judged in a class while a special guest, senior hunter equitation judge, gives a running critique of the class and what the judge is looking for.

This is an amazing opportunity for riders, coaches and parents to learn. We will provide the spectators with a copy of the course and a glossary of terms. The class will be videoed; this video, along with the critique audio will be provided for the riders to review. A separate judge will pin the class and explain her reasons for her top picks. In essence the participants will get two judges perspectives on Hunter Equitation.

This unique opportunity takes place at the first show in the Old Orchard Farm 2017 schooling show series on Monday May 22nd.

Participants will also receive double points to kick-start their standing in the I Ride 4 Erika Memorial Equitation award. In addition, all riders who participate will receive points even if they do not pin in this class. The winner of this annual award receives a complimentary registration in the I Ride 4 Erika Equitation Clinic which will take place in the fall of 2017.

Come and join us on May 22nd 2017 !
