Horses For Lease

Horses For Lease

At present we have three horses for lease, Pal & Roddy and Rhui.

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 15hh 6 year old palomino paint QHx gelding for part lease. He is sweet, friendly, and level headed. He walks, trots and canters under saddle and he’s green but good. Even though he’s a very good boy, Pal requires a rider who is experienced enough to be able to teach a green horse rather than to be taught by an experienced horse.

He knows on the bit, and loves going trail riding. With a couple more finishing touches he’ll be great to take to shows. Lessons on Pal with Kathy Harrison are a must. We’re located at Bonita Stables in North Saanich.

If you’re looking for a fun, sweet young horse with a big heart, and you enjoy the satisfaction of how fast a green horse learns, then Pal might be the perfect lease horse!

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.
