Welcome to the Royal Canadian Riding Academy (RCRA), one of the top equestrian centers in Canada.
Firstly, I would like to extend our sincere thanks to all staff, students, volunteers, clients, sponsors, organizers, associations, and friends that helped make 2019 a spectacular year. The love that we all share for our horses and the natural beauty that surrounds and engulfs RCRA empowers us both physically and mentally to lead better lives.
It’s been my pleasure to watch horses and riders of various disciplines provide thrilling moments and new inspiration on many occasions. Similarly, gratifying was each of our 155 thoroughbred racing stable’s wins across North America concluding with the fourth-most wins of an owner worldwide for the year.
At year-end, our racing stable nears 3,000-lifetime wins. This is a record for a Canadian owner.
At RCRA we welcome all whether old or new to come and enjoy our tremendous country facility and meet our many equestrian friends and riders. Beginners are welcome. All of the world’s champion riders were once beginners.
Come and enjoy our special ambiance, beautiful natural country environment, many free shows, and lots of good times. You’ll be physically and spiritually strengthened.
Learn to ride, compete at the schooling level or international level, watch a cowboy, host a birthday party, organize your own event, hike the hundreds of acres of adjacent York Region forestry and trail systems or stay for a weekend our friendly team is dedicated to ensuring your successful experience.
