Explore North Peace Light Horse Association
The North Peace Light Horse Association was founded in 1962 by a small group of people. The Club founders had a vision to create a shared equestrian facility easily accessible to the local community. The Club was donated the 39-acre property we now call home, and with the help of a dedicated group of volunteers, began work on the barns, Arena and track we all still enjoy to this day. As the of city of Fort St. John grew and the NPLHA became part of the city limits, Club members are rallying together to preserve the unique character of the NPLHA. Moving forward, we see a new improve facility that the Fort St. John community can enjoy together. We hope to keep agriculture in our city limits. For more than 60 years our club has been the heart of a passionate, tight-knit community dedicated to the preservation of equestrian, greenspace, and urban agriculture. As the club continues to grow and evolve, we look forward to the future plans for improved facilities an amenity that will increase access to the equestrian sport for the Peace Region.

Hours of operation: The Club is open daily from 6:00am until 10:00pm for use by members.
Grounds maintenance: The Indoor are groomed daily. Other rings are groomed on a seasonal basis OR on an ‘as-needed’ basis (e.g. outdoor arenas).
Club volunteers work diligently to provide the best possible footing and riding conditions; as a reminder, personal footing preferences and opinions are not necessarily aligned with those held by Management and limited volunteering and the high cost of footing are major limitations.
Membership Identification: ALL Club members and guests must display or have on their person a Club-issued identification card with emergency contact information and medical information.
Club volunteers, Board Directors and Club Instructors may ask to see these cards and individuals MUST comply - failure to do so may result in loss of riding privileges. Individuals failing to have their card will be asked to leave the property or to obtain a temporary card from the Office during business hours.
