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.

About Us

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 on the Central West Trillium Circuit.

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 is an OE Approved Facility Member.
