John, Janet, James and Jaelyn Drynan and Paul MacMillan own and operate Maple Ridge Belgians in Mountain, Ontario.

A Bit of History...

Paul was raised on an Ontario Century farm in Cumberland, Ontario, where they farmed with horses. A tractor, purchased in the early fifties, supplemented the work that the horses did. When Paul's father passed away in 1973 there was still a Belgian gelding on the farm and he purchased his first registered Belgian mare that fall.

We started showing our horses in halter classes in 1977, and for several years we also hitched up to a four-horse hitch.


In 2006, the horses moved from Cumberland to a new barn at the Drynan's place in Mountain, where they also own and operate a livestock trucking company JDFreightways Inc.

John and Janet now take care of the day to day operations and breeding program with the help of their two kids James and Jaelyn. Each year we raise several foals and also continue to actively compete with halter horses at shows across Ontario and some of the upper U.S. states.

If you're in the area and would like to stop by, just give us a call and we'd be glad to show you our horses.
