Greenhawk has been serving the equine customer for since 1985 and we want to continue to provide you the best possible service and satisfaction possible.
Since 1985, Greenhawk has grown from a small trailer serving the racing community on a racetrack in Toronto, Ontario to become the largest equine supplier in Canada with locations stretching from coast to coast, as well as a vibrant catalogue and Internet business (see store locations).
Founded by Gordon K. Russell who was later joined by his son Ian, Greenhawk grew steadily throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s, and then, following a carefully crafted strategic plan, has grown to over 40 locations since 2003.
Today, Greenhawk and its franchise partners employ over 400 people and is represented in almost every province in Canada. Greenhawk is a proud supporter of hundreds of grass roots equine events across Canada and the sponsor of the prestigious Greenhawk Canadian Cup, held every year at the Royal Winter Fair, where Canada’s top riders compete for the top prize of $100,000.
In 2012, Greenhawk Best Pet & Co. was born, offering further franchise opportunities in the form of combo horse/pet locations and free standing, full offering pet stores.
Greenhawk has worked tirelessly over the years to bring top quality brands to riders of all disciplines, and at prices that make this sport of passion both affordable and enjoyable. Every Spring and Fall it plays host to the country’s largest equestrian warehouse sale, located in Mississauga, which draws enthusiasts from across the country to participate in the social and bargain event of the year.
Greenhawk’s home office is located in a 60,000 square foot facility in Mississauga Ontario, where it warehouses and distributes product daily to its show and retail locations across the country.
