about us

Daventry Equestrian Established in 1991, Daventry Equestrian is a quiet, picturesque private training and breeding facility located 45 minutes west of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. We are one hour and fifteen minutes from the Edmonton International Airport and only four hours from the world famous Spruce Meadows.

Daventry Equestrian has been breeding warmbloods for more than 25 years. We have been awarded two breeder stars with the ISR/Oldenburg NA Registry: one star for breeding an ISR-Oldenburg NA approved stallion and a second star for breeding a minimum of three ISR-Oldenburg NA registered offspring with performance success in dressage and hunter/jumpers. We currently specializes in the training and sales of top class Welsh and Hunter Ponies in a positive atmosphere and provide individually tailored programs. In 2018, we were named the USEF 23rd Leading Pony Hunter Breeder and 18th Leading Pony Hunter Breeding Breeder. 2021 marks the fifth year in a row as the 2nd Leading Canadian Pony Hunter Breeder and we finished the season as the USEF 22nd Leading Pony Hunter Breeder.

The farm is set up with stallion facilities and a fully equipped breeding lab for processing both fresh and frozen semen. Semen is shipped year round throughout North America.

All training and showing of the stallions, sales horses and ponies is done by Tracy Dopko. We have had ponies come in for "finishing" training as far away as Pennsylvania.

Daventry Equestrian is managed with the utmost care and highest standards. We provide clients with a unique and professional atmosphere in which to purchase horses & ponies of all levels of experience and success.

We have a "Welcome Home" policy for all horses & ponies that we have bred, sold or that are sired by any of our stallions. Should an owner ever find themselves in unfortunate circumstances, or a horse or pony is in need of retirement, they may be returned to our farm at any time.
