WHAT WE ARE?
The Horseshoe J Dude Ranch has been in operation for over 50 years providing a summer camping experience & horseback riding for both boys & girls 5 years of age & older. The main emphasis of our program evolves around the horses with each Dude assigned his or her own horse. Our program includes the teaching of basic horsemanship along with escorted horseback riding over the acres of beautiful hills & valleys. Our “DUDES” sleep in conastoga wagons &, along with many hours out on our beautiful trails, they join in a complete camp program of swimming, campfires and skit night, barbeques, hayrides, movies in the barn, archery, out door games, cook-outs & barn parties. The ranch is located approximately 30 minutes south west of London, Ontario, Canada.
We also offer programs of hourly horseback riding, School, Church, birthday & business parties which include access to all the facilities of the Ranch. We now also offer overnight camping for groups in our new cabins. Try out one of our family camps. We also offer riding lessons, birthday party packages and horse clubs for all ages.
WHERE WE ARE?
We are located approximately 40K south west of London or 20K west of St. Thomas, Ontario or 150K east of Windsor. Our exit from Hwy. 401 is the Iona Road which is 3 exits west of the London Wellington Road exit. Proceed south on the Iona Road through Iona Station until you arrive at highway #3 (stop sign). Continue through the village of Iona until you come to the Erin Line which is just past the Pearce William Christian Centre. A right turn & one mile will put you at the DUDE RANCH (32553 Erin Line).
For over 50 years the ranch has been offering a horse camp experience for children ages 5 - 18. This summer we will be offering several week long camps and also a 2 night camp, and a family camp. Our camps are limited to a maximum of 25 "dudes" per session thereby allowing for maximum personal attention. Each "dude" is assigned their own horse and much of the day is spent with the horses. The ranch has many acres of beautiful trails thru the bush and valley.
Along with the many hours spent with the horses, the "dudes" participate in a complete camp program of swimming (in ground pool), hay rides, campfire and skit night, cook-out, archery, movies in the barn, out door games etc...........
