In the Heart of Halifax

 Atlantic Canada’s premiere riding school since 1936

Lancers has been building better lives through horsemanship since 1936 and teaches both junior and adult riders. The premier riding school in Atlantic Canada, Lancers thrives by fostering an environment of teamwork and inclusivity amongst all our riders. We are a not-for-profit equestrian school in downtown Halifax led by a Board of parents and riders. The horses are owned by the club. Built on the classic principles of responsible horse care, we’re proud to bring you the “Horses of Halifax”.

Calling all Alumni

We are proud to have a strong alumni community of individuals who rode at Lancers as either children or adults. Our alumni community extends back over our eighty-three year history and is characterised by the ethos “once a Lancer, always a Lancer”. Whether you rode at Lancers for two years or 20 years, we welcome former Lancers to contact us and become part of our Lancer Alumni Community.

The Musical Ride

The Lancer Musical Ride was established in 1936 and is an exciting display of tradition, power, finesse, and comradery. It is the only mounted youth performance of its kind in Canada.


We hope to see you soon!
