Rideauwood Farm


International Stallion Distribution is a Canadian Equine semen distributer. We specialize in bringing over the top European stallions to provide North American breeders access to the best quality stallions in the world. We work closely with some of the premier European stallion stations. We are working towards helping improve the quality of young horses in North America.

Rideauwood Farm is located 50 kilometres south of Ottawa along the beautiful Rideau River, Rideauwood Farm is a full dressage training facility offering a friendly atmosphere with high standards of training for both students and dressage horses. We have various levels of training, spanning from Training to Grand Prix. It is also the Canadian importer and distributor of frozen semen for many of the largest and highest quality private stallion stations in Europe, and a breeding facility with a high quality breeding program.

It is a superb facility with 25 large stalls, a 20m x 60m indoor arena, a quarantine barn, 20m x 60m outdoor sand ring, 6 horse hotwalker, 20m lunging ring, individual turn out paddocks, as well as several large pastures for broodmares and young stock.
