Captiva Farms Horseback Riding Videos


A Horseback Trail Adventure

In this video, Craig and the crew demonstrate the excitement of horseback riding in the beautiful Gatineau Hills. With Ottawa only a short drive away, Captiva Farms is your Ottawa region horseback riding adventure destination.

A Day in the Life of a Real Horseback Riding Ranch (Videos)

At the crack of dawn, we round up all of our horses and ponies for a day of work on over 20 Km. of Captiva’s horseback riding trails. All of our horses and ponies are free range, so they graze, play and wander every single night. This means the cowboys and cowgirls at Captiva Farms have to round them up every morning. We couldn’t do it without Duke, our wonder dog mascot!

Yeehaw!!! Early Morning Round Up

This is a very rare glimpse into the exciting world of a horse ranch. We allow our horses and ponies to run wild overnight, so every morning at 7 AM the daily roundup is launched. Watch as Craig Jr, Craig Sr, and Ryan get the horses out of the wild and into the stable, in order to serve our guests as their trusty horseback riding steeds

Our Faithful Mascot, Duke the Wonder Dog

Duke the dog shows you that he’s not just a pretty horse-wrangling face. This light-hearted video gives you a glimpse of the bond between a man and his dog. Craig Clost Sr. of Captiva Farms puts duke through some paces, and teaches him that “a prayer a day keeps the veterinarian away”.
