Incredible
Jul. 2020 • Family
What a beautiful ride through the historical Niagara-on-the-Lake country side.
Dinah is so knowledgeable and her horses are so calm and friendly. We had two beginners on the ride who were nervous, the herd quickly built up their self-confidence.
You won’t want to miss seeing this part of NOTL, highly recommend it. So healing to be out in nature and around such beautiful animals. 💕💫

An experience you'll never forget...
Jul. 2020
Went on a trail ride with Dinah and my two daughters. It was one of our favourite experiences in Niagara on the Lake. Dinah was amazing. You could feel her connection with her horses and the landscape - her home. The horses were wonderful, and though we were nervous, beginner riders, Dinah helped us feel confident and safe on her beautiful horses. We loved it from beginning to end.

Went there for my 60th birthday. Very gentle horses and great scenery. Our guide was very informative about the horses and the area we were in.

Beautiful horses and trails
Oct. 2019 • Couples
My husband bought me a gift certificate for a trail ride at Niagara Riding Stables because of the other great reviews and it did not disappoint. We went together this afternoon and had a really great ride. I'm an experienced rider but this was only his second time on a horse and he really enjoyed it too. Dinah seems to put a lot of thought into pairing horses with riders based on experience and probably size. You can tell she loves her horses and what she does. I'm hoping we'll have a chance to go back again soon!

Amazing experience
Sep. 2019 • Couples
My partner and I went on a ride yesterday and had an amazing time. It was my first time ever on a horse and Dinah chose Prince for me. My partner had experience but it had been many years since she last rode. Sophie was chosen for her to ride.

Dinah was so kind and so patient and made sure we were comfortable with what to do and what to expect and explained things to us as we went along.

The trail was absolutely beautiful, with the yellow leaves falling every now and then, and we saw three deer along the way (I had never been so close to a deer). The trail is forested and there is always something new to see.

Prince was so good and pretty much steered himself, but was very responsive to gentle steering. It was such a magical experience and such a relaxing journey, I didn't want it to end.

At the end of the ride I realized I had lost my phone. I very unwisely had put it in my pants pocket before we set out and at some point it slipped out. My partner and I asked Dinah if we could walk back and do a little looking but we didn't try very hard figuring it was well and truly lost. Dinah was genuinely sorry for me and because I lost my phone she took our pictures at the end of the ride and emailed them to me.

Today I received an email from Dinah and by some miracle she found my phone!!

I am so floored by Dinah's kindness and caring, her calming nature and the genuine love you can tell she has for her horses (and for Dexter and Boots, the sweet barn cats).

I highly, highly recommend to everyone to go to Niagara Riding Stables for a trail ride, even if you've never ridden before but always wanted to try it. You will be in excellent hands and have a beautiful experience to remember.

My partner and I are very grateful to Dinah and we miss Prince and Sophie and can't wait to go back!

Beautiful horses!

Even though it was a little rainy and muddy, the horses liked getting out on the trail, and so did we! A solid hour on the trails, so you get your monies worth!

My daughter and I had a wonderful time with Dinah and her beautiful horses. Lovely area with vineyard's/flowers/wooded trails. A great way to spend part of your day then head into Niagara-on-the-Lake for lunch. We both hope to return one day. Many thanks Dinah!

Great family fun

The folks at Niagara riding stables are awesome. Their horses are their family and it shows! The horses are very well taken care of and are varied enough to handle from beginners to experienced riders. I strongly recommend them.

Wonderful Experience!
Jul. 2019 • Family
Took my granddaughter and myself out to Niagara Riding Stables for the trail ride. The horses are beautiful animals majestic and so well taken care of . Dinah the owner and trail leader is so sociable and kind and very knowledable about riding and horses and safety around them.She made sure each horse was outfitted perfectly and the stirrups fit properly for each rider{there were 3 other riders with us) attended to each rider individually about fears, experience and how to drive the horse. It was a great time out in nature and fresh air we will surely be going again! Thankyou again Dinah!!!

Everything we hoped for
Jul. 2019 • Couples
We chose Niagara Riding Stables after reading the positive reviews. We were impressed with every part of our experience. My wife and I wanted a small group so we would receive more 1 on 1 attention. Dinah was great and got us settled on the horses before heading out. The wooded trails made for beautiful scenery. The horses were very calm and made for easy riding even for beginners. We will be returning again this fall to enjoy all the changing colours.
