Riding lessons for all levels and ages with qualified instructors.
Windsor-Essex Equestrian Centre is a professionally run lesson, boarding, and horse show facility located just outside of Windsor, ON. WEC opened in 2017 when Lindsay and Xavier Traisnel moved back to Lindsay’s hometown. In 2009, Xavier graduated from the Saumur National Riding School with the highest teaching certification recognized internationally. Lindsay then went on to be short listed for the 2012 Olympics. Between them, they bring their experience competing and coaching all over Europe back to Windsor Essex County.
WEC aims to create a safe, fun, and friendly atmosphere where people of all ages and experience can learn to ride. Through their camps and other programs, WEC also offers opportunities to learn horsemanship and how to care for horses. Horseback riding can help improve balance, strength and coordination, while developing patience, self-discipline, and self-confidence. All of this while being a great cardiovascular workout and a lot of fun!

The first IKONIC saddle was born in 2006 in Belgium. The ambition of its creator, was to create a high-range saddle, that would offer an optimum comfort, and that would combine high quality materials with a system allowing to modulate the saddle to the back of every horse. All this, at a competitive price.
IKONIC saddles have been designed to give you comfort, an optimal contact with your horse, as well as an excellent position. Furthermore, they all come with an interchangeable gullet system, allowing them to be adapted to all withers. The system enables you to easily change the gullet yourself according to your horse.
I brought a lovely four rising five year old through Xavier last winter. We spent three days looking at horses through France, the quality of all the horses was super. Xavier was well organized and I was always kept me informed though out the whole process. I have been delighted with my purchase and would contact Xavier again when I am looking for my next superstar.
