Event Description

“A Dog’s Best Friend is a Horse” Day

Queenswood Stables Back for its 3rd Fundraiser on May 5, 2013


For immediate release


Ottawa, Ontario: The horses at Queenswood Stables are mighty kind, and they’re back for a third year along with the Stables’ Partner Simone Williams to raise funds for another animal organization: Bytown Association for Rescued Kanines (B.A.R.K.).  The free lesson day in return for a donation takes place on Sunday, May 5, 2013 from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Stables in Navan, Ontario.

A donation of one’s choice will give the public a free riding lesson.  All monies will go to support B.A.R.K. in its efforts to rescue and re-home dogs for which President/Founder Sharon McKeil is immensely grateful.  Since the value of a lesson is $50, donations of $25 or more are encouraged and appreciated. Tax receipts will be issued starting at this amount.

In addition to the free lessons, the day will include on-site children’s activities, a bake sale, raffle, and refreshments, interest booths provided by contributing sponsors, stable tours, and the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors in a beautiful farm-like setting very close to Ottawa.** 


Specifically, the day’s schedule is set up accordingly:

7 am to 11 am – Queenswood riders get free lessons by appointment*

11 am to 1 pm – Pony rides on a first come first served basis

Special needs children are welcome, too!

1 pm to 4 pm – General public gets free lessons by appointment*

*Free lessons can be booked by calling 613-835-2085
