SJE specializes in building confidence, creating strong partnerships, and providing safe and fun equestrian education, no matter what your equestrian background is.

IMG_20150308_110934Our private equestrian facility caters to Hunter/Jumpers, Dressage, Event and pleasure riders, and is located central to the Durham Region. We’re a quick and easy drive from most major city centers, including Toronto, Pickering, Ajax, Whitby, Oshawa, Bowmanville and Port Perry.

Our goal is providing top of the line tailored equine education to all levels of riders, at a decent price point. We work with you to develop your skills, build your confidence, and reach your goals – whether you’re a casual rider or looking to shine in the show ring.

We provide a full service lesson program at our facility in Blackstock, and also offer ship in and off-site freelance coaching. We are also thrilled to announce the launch of a new training Incentive Program, designed to enhance trainer and barn owner education, improve equitation, and provide affordable freelance training to large barns.

Our in-house school masters are excellent teachers, completely safe and sound, and matched to each rider to ensure maximum comfort and learning. Our educated and certified coaches are proud to provide comprehensive, fun, and safe lessons both on and off the horse.

For safety reasons, we require that all lesson participants wear long pants and/or breeches, a properly fitted ASTM approved riding helmet, and boots with at least a ¼” heel.

Welcome to our latest sponsors!

Stephanie is thrilled to announce and welcome on board the newest SJE sponsors, Samshield and Tri-Acta H.A (Integricare).

Stephanie has been proudly riding in Samshield helmets for many years, both at home during schooling and in the show ring, and is in love not only with their comfort but the great style they offer. Look for her sporting her new premium navy helmet in the Dressage ring this summer!

Preparing for the 2015 Show Season!

Ontario – This winter may be proving to be especially cold, with endless snow and lower than average temperatures, but team SJE has been cranking up the heat in preparation for the 2015 show season. The winter temperatures have not stopped Stephanie and her team of show riders who have been braving the Canadian winter and continued training in anticipation for the fast approaching 2015 show season. Coming of a successful 2014 season, including Dressage at Devon and some great wins for team SJE on their home soil, the team is ready for spring and the show season.

Stephanie has officially declared herself, and her Grand Prix mount SJE Addiction, for the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto, and one of her young riders is currently campaigning towards juniors. Keep your eye out for Team SJE on the show grounds across Ontario this summer!
