Willowdale Equine Centre is situated on approximately 160 acres of land in Red Deer County, Alberta just 9.5 kilometers East and 2 kilometers South of the city of Red Deer.  Red Deer is a wonderful city with plenty of places to eat and shop as well as many hotels to choose from if you are an out of town client.

In 2008 we opened Willowdale Equine Centre and began boarding, training and giving lessons.   We have prided ourselves on the happiness and health of our horses, and the ability of our instructors to offer the very best nurturing and guidance available in the community. picture



New to our facility - GGT Footing

German Geo Textile or GGT is a combination of synthetic felt and polyester fibers. Mixed with sand GGT helps to bind up the footing providing cushion, tractions, and shear support. GGT is widely accepted as the premier footing solution available today.

GGT horse arena footing is widely used at international horse show facilities featuring jumping and dressage events. Facilities such as the FEI World Cup and the FTI Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, Florida. GGT is also an integral part of the footing system for the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games.
