Meet Joanna Niles
With over 25 years of riding experience, Joanna Niles, has dedicated her life to the development of equestrians, their horses, and the sport.
As a junior, she successfully competed in the eventing, jumper, hunter, and equitation divisions before pursuing her degrees in Kinesiology and Athletic Therapy at York University.
Spending her post secondary education breaking and working with her own young stock, Joanna began exercise riding thoroughbred racehorses. The opportunity to bring horses through breaking, training, repurposing and eventually, marketing has built Joanna an extensive network of customers for the marketing and purchasing of sport horses of all types.
Specializing in the hunter/jumper/equitation rings, Joanna applies clear, concise, and reliable training methods to help riders reach their goals. She currently competes on Ontario's A circuit boasting frequent wins & placings with a combination of client horses & her own personally developed stock.
With a key eye for the physical and mental development of horse and rider, Joanna applies principles derived from classical dressage and quality strength, conditioning, and therapeutic programs to provide an all inclusive approach to sport that every athlete deserves.

Specializing in Young Horse Development
Joanna found our daughter the PERFECT pony. The entire process - prospect search, pre-inspection evaluation, consulting with the breeder, scheduling our visit, PPE and vet coordination, transport to her facility (and to our home barn) and customized 75 day training program FAR surpassed all expectations. Her passion, care, commitment, progress reports, training and continued coaching support are TOP NOTCH! We feel incredibly fortunate to have this caliber of trainer so early on in this young team's show career.
Madelyne & Wind Dancer's Lyrical
As a breeder, it was important to establish a strong partnership with a quality trainer to start all the young horses in my program. For years now, I have been sending all of my youngsters to Joanna to be started. Even being over 4 hours away, I never worry a single bit when they are in her program. Having peace of mind, especially at a distance is so important. She is a fabulous trainer creating strong, solid, honest foundations and my horses always come back 100% willing, happy and healthy. I am very confident in her training program, as well a,s the care provided at the facility and highly recommend her services to my clients regularly.
I have been riding in Joanna's lesson and coaching programs for about a year and couldn’t be happier with the choice. My lessons are tailored to my riding goals and are always something I look forward to. My confidence has gone up tremendously and my knowledge has grown exponentially. I love riding with Joanna as I always have thorough understanding of what I’m learning and why and how it affects my horse.
