Dropstone Riding Academy Logo by equiinfinite


Dropstone Riding Academy

training Canada's top young equestrians since 1931


Welcome

Here at Dropstone Riding Academy we pride ourselves on equestrian and academic excellence. Our goal? To teach and train the next generation of top level equestrians. Based on 450 acres in southern Alberta, Canada, the academy is set amidst the foothills with the majestic Rocky Mountains just in view on the horizon. Dropstone offers a peaceful environment for both students and horses with its endless green paddocks, miles of trails, and surrounding trees. Founded in 1931 by English instructor George Caldwell, Dropstone quickly became the standard when it came to training young riders.

Our Students

Students are selected from a vast range of candidates from around the world and only the top thirteen make it into the program. This strict selection process guarantees that those who go through the program are hard-working, determined and passionate; essential traits for any high-level competitor.

Students learn and compete in all three phases of eventing, but they have the option to major in the discipline of their choice:

Show Jumping Majors:

Dressage Majors:

Cross Country Majors:

Riders are divided into A- and B-level teams dependent on their riding skills in all three phases of eventing during the tryouts halfway through their first year in the program. A-level riders are eligible to compete on the Elite-level team for certain events if their skill is deemed high enough. The Elite-level team is comprised of the riding instructors and they can compete internationally at large events (i.e. Olympics), whereas the A- and B-level teams are restricted to local, national, or North American run shows (i.e. small, usually one-image shows).


Breeding Program

Dropstone runs a breeding program alongside its prestigious riding academy that ensures top-of-the-line young stock is always coming up to become future show ring stars. Dropstone breeds various warmblood breeds, primarily focusing on Dutch Warmbloods. Friesians, most notably coloured Friesians, are bred and raised as well.
