In 2006, I read a fascinating article in the newspaper about www.RandyBird.ca who rescued about 10 Mustang horses from Western USA and brought them to his equine training school in Harwood, Ontario, about an hour east of Toronto. I visited these wild Mustangs many times and seemed to make a connection with the herd leader.
To learn more about horses and people, since 2008 I have volunteered once a week at a therapeutic riding program, www.CARD.ca in Toronto. Also, I have attended horse shows in Uxbridge, London, Guelph, and Toronto, Ontario and Ocala, Florida.
In addition, I have read about 10 books about Canadian Horses and visited the Canadian horse, O'Mark and Newfoundland Pony, Juno, that were featured on the Canadian stamp.
In 2009, I started riding a 10-year old, well-trained, part-Canadian mare named Fraxi at www.CountryHillFarm.ca near Stouffville, Ontario. Then, Fraxi moved back to Nova Scotia and I rode Gabe, a 20-something Haflinger pony. While on vacation in Bradenton, Florida this summer I am riding a 12-year old Morgan mare, Savannah, that is very similar to a Canadian -- well trained, about 15 hands, calm, bay color with a black, flowing mane. Also, I went swimming with horses at www.BeachHorses.com near the Gulf of Mexico.
Life doesn't get much better than that!
Do you have any pets?
