Follow Captiva Farms

Enjoy Western horseback riding year round on a ranch in the rolling Gatineau Hills, just east of the charming town of Wakefield, Quebec, and a 35-minute drive from Parliament Hill.

Since 1982, Captiva Farms has offered a rural respite for riders and animals alike. Explore over 30 kilometres (18 miles) of scenic trails, and let your mind slow down to a horse's pace. Lessons are available if you'd like to learn to ride or polish your skills, and children aged 3 to 7 can enjoy a pony ride. You won't be the only ones relaxing: Each evening, all of the farm's horses and ponies are free to roam the 182-hectare (450-acre) property.

Visitors need to reserve their trail ride time at least 24 hours in advance. Also note that, for safety reasons, all riders must be able to understand spoken instructions in English or French.
