Committed to Community

By Jess Hallas-Kilcoyne - When one thinks of dream barns, a therapeutic riding centre is typically not the first thing to come to mind. But Paralympian rider Alexander (Sandy) J. Mitchell (who will be competing in his fourth Paralympic competition in London in 2012) had a vision of a world class facility that catered to the elite equestrian and special needs rider alike. WindReach Farm was the result.

Dream Barns: Island Paradise

By Jess Hallas-Kilcoyne - When they first began designing Foxstone Stables, owners Ann Lindwall and David Saari, and manager Norah Ross, had in mind a state of the art hunter/jumper training facility, and that’s just what they ended up with. “We wanted a stable that would fit into the natural look of the property,” said Ross. “So we used a lot of wood and neutral colours that blended into the beautiful hillside.”

By Jess Hallas-Kilcoyne - Who says you can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear…or at least fresh bedding out of horse manure? GreenScene Agritek Inc. (GSA) has developed a new, economical technology that recycles horse waste and used bedding by transforming it into clean bedding pellets for your horse’s stall.

Sumac Farms

By Jess Hallas-Kilcoyne - As horse people, we’ve all dreamed about walking out the back door of our house, across the lawn, to a beautiful stable filled with happy horses. Whether your fantasy is of a cozy two stall barn or a 25 stall show facility, functionality and safety come first…which isn’t to say that beauty and luxury can’t be a part of your dream barn too.

A large number of flying insects emerge with the heat each summer, and they can turn what should be long luxurious days in the ring, field or trails into painful, frustrating or itchy endeavours! While irritation may seem like a minimal concern, excessive flies can cause stress in horses, which can lead to reduced performance and malnutrition. Not only can insects be bothersome, but bug bites can cause a variety of allergic type skin reactions in many horses.
