When people step into our arena a smile comes to their faces. The east wall is covered with horse toys and equipment for games. The arena is resplendent with a teeter-totter, tall pedestal, low pedestals, a bridge, horse bean bag, big horse ball, rotating top pedestals, hula hoops, jump ropes and a gate. Everywhere you look there’s a possibility for fun. Horses who’ve never played like this before walk into the arena and transform from horses that are just trying to survive into inquisitive, happy animals.
Several times each year the horses and handlers put their heads together and create a program to present to the general public. Once, and often twice annually, there’s a fundraiser. The groups we’ve raised money for include the Newmarket Humane Society, Ann and Pete’s Foster home for dogs, Longrun Thoroughbred Retirement Society, Toronto Cat Rescue, Art Society of King and Therapeutic Riding groups.
Two phrases aptly describe life at Winsong Farm:
“ If you can dream it, you can do it ” and “ Find the Magic within yourself ”
