Welcome to Twisted Pine Farm.


Our farm is situated on 140 acres in the quiet area of Ayr, Ontario. We specialize in the training of horse and rider from beginner to advanced level.

We have a spacious Indoor Arena, for riding in throughout the year. Our facility also includes an outdoor grass stadium ring, dressage ring, and a cross country course from pre entry to training level. We also offer full service indoor and outdoor boarding available.

Our property consists of environmentally sensitive lands, that are unique to our region. This lovely landscape is home to an incredible array of flora and fauna, some of which are ranked significant regionally, provincially, nationally, even globally.

Owner and Head Coach Dana Balfour has over 35 years of experience and commitment behind her. Dana started out as a rider competing up to advanced level 3 Day Eventing, in three countries with Air Canada as her corporate sponsor. After numerous years of coach, sixteen years ago she decided it was time to develop Twisted Pine Farm in Ayr, Ontario. The farm was designed with a number of goals in mind: mentor up and coming Canadian riders, teach young and old the pleasure of riding and horsemanship and develop sport horses.

Being a long time supporter and volunteer with Canadian Pony Club, Dana also made her farm home to the regional Bright Water Pony Club

The farm is also a participant in the Southern Ontario Combined Training Association. Where thefocus is on developing confident, educated and well-rounded riders for competitive sport and pleasure.
