A new horseback riding school is opening in Toronto next year.

Based out of the Horse Palace Building on the Exhibition Grounds, Toronto Equestrian Downtown is set to open in 2021.

Operated by Toronto Equestrian, the new location will offer a variety of horseback riding lessons, including private, semi-private, and group lessons, as well as introductory classes and in-house schooling shows.

The school was founded by Equestrian Canada Certified Instructors Sue Iwan and Julianne Clifford. They currently operate a riding facility in Uxbridge.

Members of the new location will be able to access the programs and amenities offered at the original Uxbridge facility, including clinics, camps, hacking trails, and a two-acre apple orchard.

“Toronto Equestrian Downtown is the place to be for city dwellers who love horses,” the school says. “We excel in bringing riders up through the riding school ranks to help them achieve their individual goals.”

Opened in 1931, the Toronto Horse Palace contains 1,200 stalls over two floors and a heated indoor riding ring. The heritage building is used for events at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair.

While there’s no opening date, pre-registration for Toronto Equestrian Downtown is now open.
