Welcome to the Virtual world of Ideal Training Centre, "Where Your Horse Comes First.”

Nestled in the town of Erin in Wellington County, just 7 minutes north of Acton on Hwy 25, on a beautifully landscaped and well maintained 50 acre property, ITC is ideally located to all major tracks in Ontario, with easy access on all thoroughfares.

In July 2008, as horse owners ourselves, we excitedly took over an existing Standardbred Horse training centre and immediately after possession started to upgrade the facility, functionally and esthetically, to provide a safe and enjoyable atmosphere for both our athletic horses and professional horsemen alike.

The Horse complex includes 3 barns with a total of 123 stalls, 31 generous fenced paddocks with electric wire, wide roadways for easy loading and parking of trailers, a covered 8 horse exerciser and a 6 horse exerciser. Blacksmith and Operations Managers are on site along with numerous on-call Veterinarians. Last, but not least and most important of all, a highly maintained 5/8 mile training track with good big turns allowing you to prep your horse without leaving the property.

Please enjoy your tour and thank you for visiting with us.
