Horses For Lease

Horses For Lease

At present we have four horses for lease, Pal, Sadie, Roddy and Rhui.

Available 2 to 3 days/week to an experienced, mature rider.

Nyna is a 16 hand, Shire/TB cross mare.  She has shown to 2nd level dressage with scores in the mid 60’s and has been schooling 3rd level.  As her owner has had to take some time away from riding, Nyna is currently working at a 1st/2nd level and going out on the trails.  Nyna is level headed and fun to ride, but not a novice rider’s horse.

She is located at Shannick Farm on Wain Road in North Saanich, right next to Horth Hill Park.  If you would like to take a trial ride, contact me at and we’ll set up a day and time.

Available One Day/Week.

Roddy, one of Kathy’s most popular school horses, is now available for a 1 day per week lease at Poplar Lane Farm.  Roderick O’Way, or Roddy for short, is a 14.1 hh Connemara pony.  He was born on the summer solstice, and will be 16 years old on June 21st.

Roddy recently won Reserve Champion in Western Dressage at the Wild N Wooly 2018 Dressage show series.

He goes English and Western, and was for ten years a champion jumper.  He is good on the bit, has a consistent, balanced trot, and a wonderful easy canter.  And he loves to do flying changes!

In order to get the most out of your lease, lessons with Kathy are a must.  If you are a beginner, you can ride one day per week and your lesson will be that day.  If you ride two or three days per week, on non-lesson days you can ride on your own in the ring or with others.  And there are trail rides – Roddy loves group trail rides!

Most of all, Roddy is a sweetheart.  For the rider who has a bit of experience and wants to get better, Roddy is your man.  There’s a lot of knowledge in the head of his, and he will help you achieve your goals.

Contact Pam for more info or to arrange a trial lesson.


Pal is a 7 year old 15hh QHx gelding. He is trained in basic dressage and loves going trail riding. We are located at a fantastic facility in North Saanich with a really great indoor, friendly boarders and facility owner, an outdoor jumping field, a heated washroom and good trails nearby. Pal has a great personality, and he is super friendly. He is level headed, not spooky, and has comfortable gaits, which makes him a pleasure to ride. He’s ready to start showing in basic dressage or in hack shows. Pal is easy going enough that a capable novice will do fine on him, but because he’s still young whoever leases him will need to be a confident and calm rider so that he keeps his happy go lucky outlook on life.
To get the most out of your lease with Pal, riding lessons with our coach, Kathy Harrison, would be a must. Beyond that, lease days are quite flexible and we can work around your schedule. Pal will be a fun and satisfying lease for the right person.

Ruhi is a 13 yo, 16.3hh warmblood, gelding. With his puppy dog personality, and eager to please character he requires a confident and knowledgeable rider. Experienced jumper and hunter showed in the 1.00 meters and schooled to 1.1 5meters but has scope for way more, and phenomenal movement for dressage. Super easy keeper, pretty much only needs love and cuddles. Looking for either a short term leaser for July-August 2-3 days a weak, and option to continue into September. Best suited in a lesson program, or in the hands of an experienced rider. Available for an on property lease, alongside another leaser who is looking after Ruhi while I am overseas.
