Paradise Ridge Equestrian Centre
                 We are blessed to be a blessing!!

 
 
Let us introduce ourselves!  We are Dave and Sandy Card, proud and blessed owners and operators of Paradise Ridge Equestrian Centre. 
We were able to purchase our dream property on October 14, 2011 after we sold our last hobby farm.  Sandy owned horses and ponies as a youth and sold her last pony before moving out west with her mother and sister.  She moved back to her hometown of Bancroft, ON in June of 1987 and always hoped and dreamed of owning a horse again.  In the summer of 2000 she was able to buy a large grade pony and that's where it all got started again!  We now own a few horses that are mostly for personal use and a couple will hopefully be successful at showing.
Sandy is an avid rider in a variety of disciplines with the majority of them being in the English seat, which is her passion!  She also LOVES to attend as many clinics as possible and participates in as many lessons as she can.  Sandy thrives on continuing to expand her knowledge of the equine she loves so much!
 
Dave was never brought up with horses but they've kind of grown on him!  He keeps fairly busy running our General Contracting company and he's not a "rider" himself but he does enjoy being around them.  Often times you find him willingly helping to bring horses in and out, muck stalls, hold horses for the vet and farrier, trailer horses, helping students to collect their horses or ponies from the field, etc., etc.  He plays a huge role and is a valuable partner in the operation of the farm.
We have been married for almost 17 years and have 4 adult children together,  a daughter in-law and 3 beautiful grandsons.
 
It is our intent to run Paradise Ridge Equestrian Centre as a first class boarding facility where everyone will feel welcomed and right at home and where they'll feel confident knowing that their equine is receiving knowledgeable and loving care.
