Welcome to the
     Peachland Riding Club

Peachland Riding Club (PRC) is located in beautiful Peachland British Columbia. We have over 8 acres of gorgeous park land with a multitude of trails, a oversized main arena and 2 huge warm-up arenas. We have a full concession on site and a beautiful Clubhouse that holds approximately 110 people and hosts all sorts of different events. In 2008 we built a new announcers building; a great addition which is a 2-story facility that gives timers and announcers a great panoramic view of the whole arena. The Peachland Riding Club grounds and clubhouse are a great place for your next function (Rental Info).

Our club was founded in 1969 and has grown ever since. Besides the monthly Gymkhana Shows that we hold throughout the riding season, we now also hold other events such as Western Heritage, Can Trek, Little Britches and High School Rodeos. Our club also participates in Peachland's 2 yearly parades.

Thank you for visiting us and please feel free to leave us a comment or suggestion and if you need to get a hold of anyone check out the contacts list for further info.
