About Us

Enter into a world of excitement, relaxation and great memories.
Captiva Farms was founded 29 years ago as a place to get away from the demands and stresses of city living. By entering the gates of our 450 acre horseback trail riding ranch, situated 5 minutes east of Wakefield Québec, guests enter into a world that slows down to a horse’s heartbeat (about half of a human’s). 

Happy Horses, Healthy Horses, Happy Riders!

Free Range Horses at Captiva Farms ImageWe keep our horses extremely healthy, by following a rigorous industry-leading checklist, which includes regular grooming, washing, checking, and various other forms of inspection and maintenance. Captiva Farm’s standards of care have been adopted by major horseback riding associations.

A Pony’s Life…

Our ponies are allowed to run wild every night on over 450 acres of beautiful farm land. This allows them to safely fulfill their own exercise, stimulation and social needs. By the time they wake up and are ready for guests, they are physically, socially and psychologically nourished.

  1. Hello there guys, it’s Wendy and Deidre and we just wanted to send a special thank you for the most wonderful time this past weekend! I personally will remember it for a long time to come and have already begun recruiting friends for follow up vacations in the future! (Only of course if Carlos will be in attendance !)
    A special thank you to Paul as well for the lovely facial when I get the pictures back I will be sure forward one along for your scrap book 😉
    I feel thank you is a completely unworthy expression of my experience at the farm and have to say once again as I did to Ute shortly before leaving that my time at Captiva exceeded all my wildest expectations and I plan to make the journey to Captiva several times a year if possible.

    Once again thank you so very much and I look forward to seeing you all again.
    Wendy 😉

  2. We wish to thank you for providing Alyssa with a wonderful summer experience. We’re sure it will help her as she goes back to school

  3. Went for an hour trail ride and there was a lot of beautiful scenery! The horses were well behaved and the guides were friendly and patient. Would go again in a heartbeat.

  4. Just wanted to say thank you for a great experience! My partner and I came for a lesson followed by a trail ride and it was awesome! We had a great guide, great horses and couldn’t ask for more in terms of scenery. Our guide even kept us out for longer than the hour we paid for. You can tell that Captiva is all about the experience!
