Maintenance and Future Projects


The Metchosin Equestrian Society leases the riding rings, grandstand, concession and horse trailer parking from the District of Metchosin on an annual basis.  

MES maintains the rings, the grandstand/concession area and the nearby parking with volunteer help from our members. 

MES members, in partnership with Metchosin District employees, help to maintain our local trails and often organize work parties to keep them clear and passable. Please check our Calendar of Events for the next opportunity to help out.

Future Projects

The Metchosin Equestrian Society would like to complete a number of projects in the future including:  

  • Ring watering system
  • Raised platform for ring viewing
  • Concession interior upgrade
  • Upgrade, paint and waterproof the grandstand

We are always looking for participation and fresh ideas from our vibrant equestrian community. If you value our community riding ring and our beautiful trail system, please come out and support MES.  

Club History

The Metchosin Equestrian Society was started in 1988 by local Metchosin horse enthusiasts. In January of the following year MES was formed as a Non-Profit Society.  

Metchosin Pony Club was a main contributor to the construction and upkeep of the ring. 

For over more than 25 years Metchosin Pony Club held many pony rides, clinics, lessons, Prince  Philip Games, Jumping and Dressage shows and summer camps.

In 2017 the Metchosin Pony Club merged with the Greater Victoria Pony Club.
