About Us

About-SonicRed Gate Sporthorses is operated by the mother-daughter team of Vicki Foerster and Angel Mackenzie. Originally based in Victoria, B.C., we moved to the area of Kemptville, Ontario, in 2000, and progressively expanded our 18-acre facility to include an indoor arena, two barns with 15 stalls, a round pen, and a number of fields and paddocks.

Angel has competed our horses in eventing, dressage and jumper and has taken a particular interest in starting and producing the horses with a focus on our home-breds. She has also just completed a PhD in Experimental Psychology.

Our breeding philosophy:

Using horses with proven sport pedigrees, primarily of Hanoverian and Holsteiner lines, we strive to breed rideable, athletic horses. We aim to breed horses that we want to ride – and we hope that you will want to ride them too! From time to time, we have high quality horses for sale including foals, prospects and experienced competition horses.
