About Shadowlane Stables
Shadowlane is owned and run by Carla Paxton. Carla has been riding her own ponies since the age of 5. Raised on a dairy farm, she had the opportunity to ride several horses and ponies at a young age and showed them at local schooling and Trillium shows. As a teenager, Carla moved up to the hunter ring on the ‘A’ circuit and showed successfully for several years. At 17 she decided to turn her passion into a career and managed a private stable. A couple of years later, she purchased a farm and started her own riding school.
The stable has slowly grown from 2 students and 5 horses to over a 100 students and 28 horses in 2019 and continues to grow. Carla takes great pride in watching her young "horse crazy" students learn to ride, improve their skills, and move up the ranks on the show circuit. She continues to ride daily and has great interest in developing her own young and green horses.
