A Hunter/Jumper Facility

RailsideView Equestrian Center

Training , Lessons & Boarding


Melissa Hannent-Hillis purchased the farm in 2005 and has been developing a first class boarding and show facility since that date.... Focusing on family and fun, Melissa strives to make everyone’s riding experience the best that it can be either in the show ring or out on a hack.

Melissa has been riding and owning horses since she was 4, started with the 4H horse club and London Pony Club, fox hunted, evented, Appaloosa breed showing and showed various divisions at the “Gold and Silver” Hunter/Jumper levels.

Melissa can be found at the farm with her Fiancé Dave Longo and our combined family. Hughie (21) and Chelsey (18) and Dave's Daughter Hailey Longo (12) (Lil' Hailey)

Melissa can be found in the barn, where else!?!  Melissa has been coaching for 25+ years. Many of her students move up through the schooling show circuits to the Southwest Trillium Circuit then on to “A” Circuit shows in Toronto area.
