Directions to the stables from Victoria & Sidney.

Option No. 1
Take the Pat Bay Hwy, No 17, North toward the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal. Take the Wain Road/Deep Cove exit. Turn West (left) on Wain Road. Proceed to West Saanich Rd., turn South (left) on West Saanich, take the fisrt right hand turn (West) on Downey Rd. The stable is located on the left hand side and has stone pillars with an iron gate at the entrance.  There's a Downey Farm/Harrison Horsemanship sign at the entrance.

Option No. 2
Take the Pat Bay Hwy, No 17, North toward Sidney. Turn West (left) on Beacon Ave. Proceed on Beacon, go past the first right hand turn and keep going until you reach the 4 way stop.  Turn West (left) at the 4 way stop on to Mills Rd.  Follow Mills Rd until you get to West Saanich Rd, turn North (right) on West Saanich.  Proceed on West Saanich until you get to Downey Road on your left.  Turn left onto Downey Rd.

Parking:  Once you enter the property be sure to check the driveway for oncoming traffic as it's a one way road.  There is a gravelled pull out at the start of the driveway where you can wait for oncoming traffic, the same is true for the parking lot end of the driveway.  Do not, for any reason, drive anywhere on the grass alongside the driveway, or pull over on to the grass to allow another vehicle to pass.  If you do happen to meet another vehicle, back up until you get to the pull out.  As always drive very slowly, under 10 kms.  It's a long driveway and feels like it takes a long time to get to the parking lot, but the slow speed keeps kids, horses, their handlers and dogs safe.
