BRAECREST FACILITIES AND SERVICES

Braecrest Farm is situated in one of the most beautiful areas in Southern Ontario: Oro Medonte. ‘Proud Heritage, Exciting Future’.  Just minutes from the Horseshoe Valley, the area is known for its fabulous rolling hills, sandy loam soil, and outstanding beautifully maintained trails for riding. We are less than 10 minutes from the highway 400, making commuting very easy from all areas in southern Ontario. We’re just an hour and 15 minutes from the Pearson International Airport in Toronto.

We purchased this fabulous 100 acres in the spring of 2013.  We have developed the new property into a state of the art equestrian facility, designed with safety, efficiency, and great enjoyment of both horses and people in mind. The new farm has 30+ acres of turn out paddocks and pastures. We have over 3000 feet of underground water lines installed, to provide year-round automatic water for the horses. The fencing is a combination of Flex Fence and Hot Cote, a system we have used for 15+ years. It has proven to be the safest fencing for all ages of horses in our experience.

There are two barns on the property. The Breeding Barn, and the Training Barn. The Breeding barn is a beautiful century bank barn with several additions. Renovations are underway, and the end result will include 9 14×18 box stalls for foaling, 6 12×12 box stalls, and 7 tie stalls. We also have horse stocks for breeding and any required medical procedures. The foaling barn is equipped with 24 hour security and foaling cameras.  There is a large heated tack room and lab, set up for managing all aspects of stallion, mare and foal care.

The Training Barn is a brand new 6400 square foot barn, with 15 stalls, 2 grooming stalls, wash stall with radiant heat, laundry room, feed room, washroom, and tack room with viewing lounge. The barn has been designed to suit every type of horse, from stallions to herd-bound young horses never having lived in stalls before, to top quality show horses. Attached to the Training Barn is a brand new indoor riding arena, with premium dust free sand footing. The beautiful 80’x184’ riding space makes schooling in there an absolute pleasure. We have 18’ wall heights and 8’ of clear siding to keep the atmosphere bright and welcoming, with 6 large sliding windows. The horses learn to work and focus being able to see out of the arena, and riders can enjoy the incredibly spacious and bright atmosphere.

Our outdoor ring is 110’ x 220’, and is fenced for horse and rider safety. This also gives us the option of hosting Breed Inspections, Clinics and Shows outdoors as well as indoors. The footing is the beautiful natural sandy loam famous to this area, which allows the horses to train and strengthen in the most natural way.

We have 50 acres of rolling hay fields, and trails through 15 acres of mature maple bush. The views are breath-taking from the top of the hill at the back of the property… extending all the way to lake Simcoe!

This facility and atmosphere is by far one of the best in Ontario for finding, developing and enjoying our wonderful equine partners!
