WELCOME TO HOPE HAVEN
THERAPEUTIC RIDING CENTRE
With Gratitude to Founder, James W. Gill and the Gill Family Charitable Trust
Hope Haven is a 142-acre therapeutic riding centre located on top of the Beaver Valley, 2 hours north of Toronto. We offer equine and therapeutic riding programs that help individuals with challenges build self-confidence and improve their physical, cognitive and emotional health.
Hope Haven is located on 142 acres of beautiful farmland on the top of Beaver Valley.
Our indoor riding arena allows for the Equine Therapeutic Programs to occur all year round and the outdoor riding ring lets our riders enjoy the picturesque surroundings of Hope Haven during the summer months.
We have two barns containing eighteen box stalls and nine paddocks for our Therapeutic Riding horses.
Meet Our Team
We bring together people with horses, expert staff, parents and volunteers to create a community of hope and empowerment.

Make a Donation!
We have been the recipient of many generous donations from local service clubs, organizations, individuals, and foundations and are extremely grateful for the support.
These contributions are absolutely necessary to support our mission to provide a transformative experience through our distinctly designed programs for individuals with challenges.
