Sunnybrook Stables, the site of one of Canada’s first indoor riding arenas, was the scene of a massive barn fire in the early morning hours of May 21, 2018. Up to 50 Toronto firefighters battled the two-alarm blaze that broke out around 3 a.m. EST, engulfing one barn and spreading to another. Sixteen horses died, and 13 more horses were moved to safety from the second burning barn, and later moved again to the Canadian National Exhibition grounds with the assistance of the Toronto Police Mounted Unit.
