Centaur Riding School

Established in 1973


Welcome to Centaur Riding School

Welcome to Centaur Riding School…a family operation in Navan, Ontario, started in 1970. The School was officially launched in 1973.

The riding school was initiated by Claire and Jean-Louis Guertin, and their daughter Shirley Guertin. Shirley took over the reins in 1989, and with Mike Cook expanded the breeding farm in 2000. Today, Shirley’s daughter Danika Guertin-Pierson, is continuing the tradition by teaching, training and competing, very successfully, on Centaur’s home-bred horses.

Since the beginning, thousands of people have been introduced to horses at Centaur. For many of these students, horses have become a life-long passion. Across Canada one can find former Centaur students holding prominent positions in the riding community, or who have started their own riding schools, or competing at prestigious events, or who now simply enjoy their own horses in their own backyards. Many life-long friendships have seen their beginnings at Centaur… Welcome to our family!
