Toronto’s equestrian history dates back to Wednesday, June 27, 1860 when the Queen’s Plate was inaugurated with royal blessing in the city. Thought it started at the Carleton track, it now resides at Woodbine, which has placed host to the event since 1956. Attended on multiple occasions by the Royal Family, it is often referred to as Toronto’s most fashionable sporting event.
Big hats and days of events draw huge crowds to the Queen’s Plate and this year, equestrian fans were also able to attend Pan Am / Para Pan Am events at OLF Caledon Pan Am Equestrian Park where Canada set a new national record with its 65th gold medal.
Though these two events garnered a lot of equestrian attention north of the city this past summer, York Region and beyond are hubs of equestrian action with multiple stables and riding centres for casual and professional riders to enjoy.
For the true equestrian enthusiast, living on a property with horses is the ultimate goal. Our bucolic landscape lends itself perfectly to such properties and I’ve not only helped list and buy such properties in the past, but also indulged my passion for the lifestyle by making it a specialty in my professional career.
If you’ve ever considered such a property, I can help. In fact, I currently have three such properties listed. Check them out!
