Benchview has been in the hands of the Darte family since 1998. The beautiful acreage in Niagara-on-the-Lake has evolved over time with the barn and simple paddocks built initially and eventually upgraded with a large megadome indoor arena, newly renovated outdoor riding ring and numerous large paddocks. Large, bright 12 x 12 stalls fill the barn aisles with a spacious tack room, viewing lounge and wash stall. The farm is overlooked by the Darte home and surrounded by large hay fields and vineyards. Throughout the farm's evolution, it has held many purposes, being at one point a personal farm with pleasure horses and western performance horses. It is now the home to many lovely school horses, show hunters and western pleasure horses.
