Discover the Beauty of Classical Equestrian Riding

Make The Connection

Feel The Motion

Experience The Freedom


Whether it’s relaxing rides as a departure from daily living, or an ambitious exploration that elevates the spirit, we are here to guide you on your journey. Regardless of your path, a life that includes a relationship with a horse is a special gift, where meaning is found and freedom experienced.

Enjoy every moment with us, with large open indoor and outdoor spaces, in one of Metro Vancouver’s premium equestrian facilities. Providing horses and ponies for all ages and levels.



As a long-standing school of horsemanship and equestrian sport, we use a step-by-step approach to help our students pursue their goals with clarity and confidence. Our process makes it easy.

While most of our students are not competitive, dozens have become provincial champions, some winning national awards, and a few have become full-time professional equestrians. Our dedication to classical riding and our proven teaching system allows our students to apply the correct knowledge and become thoughtful riders and true equestrians.

Serving the equestrian community in Vancouver and Richmond since 1979.



Although my two granddaughters, who are 8 and 11 years old, have been riding at Riverside for less than two years, we all feel as if it is their second home. They love their lessons and have benefited enormously from instruction from the Riverside team. With patience, kindness and consistency from this wonderful group, they are both able to move forward in achieving their riding goals. Lessons are always conducted in a warm and supportive environment that leaves both these young riders with a feeling of confidence and accomplishment. Instruction at Riverside is laying a foundation for them to both gain the skills they require for competitive riding and also to develop an empathy and love of these wonderful animals that is forming a foundation for them to be kind, thoughtful and caring adults. Thank you Riverside!

"I’ve been riding at Riverside for many years now and it’s like coming home. Through the years, Linda has always been accommodating and supporting with my hectic and sporadic schedule. You don’t have to own a horse nor be at a certain level, everybody is treated equally with kindness and respect. It’s welcoming and where lifelong friendships are made."

Jessica Hsu

"Riverside has a very inclusive environment where people of all ages and abilities are brought together by the love of horses. If you are looking for anything from casual riding lessons to competing at a high level, Riverside has the knowledge and coaching experience to help you achieve your riding goals."
