Located on the beautiful Rideau Canal, just minutes from Kemptville, Ontario. Lone Wolf Farm has a quiet and friendly atmosphere on 20 acres of land. We offer wonderful programs in the hunter, jumper and dressage fields, as we pride ourselves in the basics, the foundation of the future. We are known for our Beginner Program which starts riders off in a “one on one” program to learn not only the basics of riding but also many important horsemanship skills.
Owners/Operators: Marilyn and Dave McFadden
This original McFadden family farm located on the historic Rideau Canal, was purchased in 1923 and was a working farm with cattle, horses, chickens, pigs and huge vegetable gardens. Marilyn and Dave took over the operation of the farm in 1991 and the McFadden Farm became known as Lone Wolf Farm. The cattle had to go to make room for the horses. Lone Wolf Farm started out with summer day camps and riding lessons given by Marilyn during the spring, summer and fall. In 1996 an indoor arena was built, more stalls and additions were made to the barn to accommodate the growing number of horses and riders. In 2012, a new barn was built to provide more space for hay, storage for tack, wash stall, horses, and many seminars/clinics have been held in this facility.
Lone Wolf Farm has been hosting Bronze shows, Fun shows, and clinics since 1998. In 2016 a second enormous sand ring was built. Both sand rings are fully enclosed with very safe fencing. There are bleachers and a new large viewing stand for spectators to enjoy watching the shows and lessons. Both sand rings and indoor arena have a wide variety of hunter and jumper poles and standards, boxes, gates and various fillers to prepare the horse and rider for the show ring.
We currently have six hunter/jumper and dressage coaches that are providing lessons to over seventy five students. Lessons are offered seven days per week with morning, afternoon and evening sessions available. Coaching is available at the Bronze, Silver and Gold levels for Hunter/Jumper and Dressage shows. Our show team is very competitive at all levels.
Our horses are very well cared for. They enjoy safe fencing in their paddocks, run in sheds to provide shade and protection from the elements. Each paddock also has a tank for 24 hour access to water. These tanks are heated in the winter as underground wiring has been provided to each paddock. All horses have free access to hay or grass at all times. We currently have two wells to provide water to all areas of the farm.
In 2015 a very large Generac 17,000 propane generator was hard wired into the electrical panel. If there is a power failure, this generator starts automatically within 30 seconds. The generator provides power to all areas of the farm – lights for the arena, lights in both barns, all electrical outlets, water pumps, furnaces, etc. There is no interruption in the services to the client or care to the horses. We take great pride in maintaining all fencing and farm equipment so that everything is always in working order.
We are prepared to properly care for your equine friends. Our support staff are very experienced in providing nutritional and first aid requirements. Our staff are always available to answer your questions and to assist you if needed. We will strive to continue learning and to offer the most up to date clinics to the rider and staff members. As we do live right here on the property, we are always on site to care for and oversee the daily operations at Lone Wolf Farm.
