The Venturing Hills Equestrian Photography Facebook Page is designed to promote all special events that go on at Venturing Hills. This includes a range of subjects from Horse Shows and Lessons/Clinics to Camps and candid’s around the farm. The page will be primarily active from April – September as these are the busiest months for most equestrian’s but stay tuned and check back in for our favorite photo of the month.

If you have a photo (or many photos) that you think should be posted please shoot us a message at our Facebook page or alternatively email raebecke@gmail.com

 

Another beautiful day for riding…

On behalf of the Becke family who call Venturing Hills Farm their home and the team who operate the Venturing Hills Equine Training Center, I welcome you to one of the most beautiful farms of the Pontiac.  We are 25 minutes from downtown Ottawa and offer excellence in every aspect of equine care and equestrian endeavour.

Venturing Hills Farm backs onto the Eardley Escarpment of the Gatineau Park at Luskville, Quebec. Formerly known as “Farm of the Mountain”, the facility provides:

  • access to hundreds of acres of land, including open fields and trails
  • indoor arena
  • cross-country courses
  • permanent hunter course on 40 year old turf
  • a full set of show jumps
  • large stone dust and sand ring
  • fenced sand ring for novice horses and riders
  • large grass paddocks
  • riding instruction available in French or English

The Training Center caters to all levels and ages of rider and is dedicated to the enjoyment of horses by supporting all aspects of equestrian sport. Individually tailored care and training programs for horses and riders support both leisure riding and the challenges of competition.

Our boarding service offers 24/7 on-site care with a team of expert vets and farriers on regular call. People new to the sport are also welcomed by our certified instructors and well trained horses and ponies. Our select school-ponies and horses are especially appreciated by kids and parents alike. With eager children we focus on Equine Canada's Learning to Ride fundamentals which emphasizes safe fun, but we encourage self expression in the stimulating and challenging environment of the farm and training center. With North American coaching and equitation principles, for most riders and horses, we focus on the European principles of cross-training, in all three Olympic disciplines of Dressage, Jumping and Cross Country riding. We are also happy to arrange part or full leases as options for owners and non-owners, for pleasure and/or competitive riding purposes. Finally, on an individually contracted basis, we do agent the sale and purchase of animals for our clients.

If you need any additional information or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us through the web site or please call the stable at 613.863.4598.
