Situated on 30 acres just 15 minutes from downtown Victoria, Westside Stables is a first-class equestrian facility, striving to offer the best amenities for horse and rider.

In planning the layout for the great facility Westside would become, we envisioned a place that met the needs of all riding disciplines and made everyone feel welcome. The name Westside Stables at Bonnie Brae Farm reflects the heritage of the property. Bonnie Brae Farm originated as a dairy farm and translates from the Dutch term for beautiful valley.

Indoor Riding Arena

Measures 216' x 80' and has a sand and Nike shoe rubber footing. Sprinklers installed in the ring mean the dust is kept under control. A mezzanine includes a 60' heated viewing area, making for comfortable spectators and a safe viewing area for kids to hang out.

The Interior of the Barn
The stabling barn has 32 large box stalls, a heated tack room with generously sized lockers, 3 cross-tie areas, 2 Vet/Farrier stalls and a wash stall with both warm and cold water. Because it's attached to the arena, riders can avoid those wet winter nights.
The Lesson Horse Barn

It took a lot to save, but the 1890's dairy barn was converted to stalls for up to 12 horses. The barn includes a tack room and 2 cross tie areas. This barn is where the lesson horses live. It's hay loft holds up to 2000 bales of quality hay, some of which we harvest from our own fields.

Westside Stables would like to thank Tiffany Baggett for organizing a bottle drive to give this old barn a new coat of paint, and making it look brand new again! We would also like to thank the many volunteers that helped to paint it!

The Outdoor Ring    
With a sand footing, this well-lit ring now measures 125' x 230'. Besides making for great lessons, the ring is also used year-round for Hunter/Jumper Horse Shows. The ring has recently been extended a full 30 feet and brand new footing has been added. This ring was also recently used to host the Cadora's Capital City Classic (Dressage), showing the ring's versatility.
Paddocks/Field Turnout  

Large all-weather paddocks mean no boredom for horses, with plenty of space to blow off some steam and be comfortable. The luxury loafing sheds in some of the paddocks provide shade and shelter.

In the early summer, large fields become available for field turnout, allowing horses to have large grassy paddocks and roam without close borders.

Grass Showfield    
More than 6 acres have been commited to grass-field competitions. Boasting a dry ditch, a small two level bank as well as large multi-level bank with many heights available, most notable being a 3'6" drop off, this field is perfect for 'A' rated shows as well as a great space to hack your horse.

Longing Ring    
This ring has a sand footing, and is very generously sized. With a high fence line, it provides a safer area to longe your horse, without having to worry about the horse jumping out.
