Northfields is a family run Standardbred operation located in the Meaford/Thornbury area of Ontario. 200 acres of limestone-based land on the Niagara Escarpment provide the nutritional foundation for developing sound bone and muscle in our yearlings. Combined with loose-housing facilities and lots of room, this creates the ideal healthy environment to raise competitive athletes. Right up to shipping to the sale, they continue to exercise in the group environment. Bumps and scars resulting from the interaction are a small price to pay to instill the competitive attitude needed later in the racing wars. The fresh air certainly has no adverse effect on the respiratory system. If you are looking for a hot-housed yearling, this is not the place.

The size of our operation is such that every horse (yearling) is important. Because of the personal and family involvement, the little details are significant and are looked after. We strongly believe in our motto 'If they are to race right - they must be raised right.' Of course, the foals and yearlings are on a regular deworming, vaccination and hoof care program.

Visitors are always welcome - prospective buyers adored!
