Horse Trails-Why the Fraser Valley is the Best Place to Ride
For those of us who are lucky enough to live in the Fraser Valley, we are certainly aware of the tremendous beauty of our surroundings. We are also grateful for all of our great horse trails.
Life is rich with colour in the autumn on the lower mainland. Many of us love to get out in the great outdoors with our families. We breath the fresh air and get some exercise. We really do have the best of everything in the Fraser Valley.
One of the great advantages of living in the Fraser Valley area is along with the abundance of farms and beautiful vegetation, we have many of the best riding stables in the world! We will focus on only three, because this is a blog. I could write a book on our riding community. Just know that there are many more ranches and stables than mentioned, located all over the valley. They offer many of the same outstanding services as those mentioned. We will have future blogs about other stables and equestrian centres in the future.
First of all, we will start with Langlee Acres. It is one of the featured riding stables/equestrian centres. The Lee family purchased the 28 acre property in 2003. They have a horse boarding business, Full boarding more than 50 horses, and also offering Self Board spots. They have a large 6 bay shop, 9 separate barns, an indoor lunging arena, a hot walker, a viewing lounge, 3 outdoor arenas, a 3 furlong track, and smail trails on the property.. These folks are here for a full range of equine interests. English and Western, lease and sell horses and even hold Derby’s. https://www.langleeacres.com/

Langley 204 Horseback Riding
Another wonderful stable is Langley 204 Horseback Riding. It is a family oriented riding stable that has been family run for over 20 years. Located in South Langley, directly across from Campbell Valley Park, the stable has been established longer than any other facility of its kind on the Lower Mainland. Because of that experience and record of safety, it speaks for itself! They offer trail rides, lessons, pony rides, leasing and regular rider packages.
