Venturing Hills Equestrian Community


I think that the first time I set foot on “The Farm” was in 1985. I remember thinking that it was paradise. Such beauty! Back then, it was still “Farm of the Mountain”, ruled by the late Mrs. Laframboise who’s spirit, I believe, still accompanies us on our rides.

It’s been “Venturing Hill Farm” for a long time now, but to me, it’s still paradise and “The (one and only) Farm”. Rae and the Becke family operate a wonderful facility where everyone feels welcome to enjoy riding and spending time with their horses.

I couldn’t picture being anywhere else.


Venturing Hills isn't like any other farm, it's what I like to call my forever barn. I have never been in such a loving and supportive team of people.

The staff and coaches from VHF are incredible at accommodating my needs, and providing premium care for all my horses. My horses always feel like royalty and I know that the staff cares about their well-being as much as I do.

I have learned more about the equine world in the last two years at VHF then I had in my whole previous riding career.

This barn is definitely the place to be, if horses are your passion.


Venturing Hills Farm has become an extension of our family. They care deeply for our four horses including offering extra support and special care to our 30 year old, blind horse, Fleet.

They have been an instrumental part of our children's development who started at the ages of 3 and 5 years old and are now young adults with a fantastic work ethic and attitude that can be partly attributed to their time at VHF.

Quite simply, VHF is a place to push your boundaries, learn to ride and most of all - have fun!
