Saddle up for fun at horse day
Hobby Horse Farm in Coldbrook is saddling up for an annual event held across Canada that’s designed to give riders, parents, coaches and people of all ages the opportunity to meet horses and learn about equestrian sport and recreation.
On June 3 and 4, activities are planned at the farm, including cross country jumping lessons for all levels from beginner to accomplished riders on Saturday and a day of friendly, fun competition on Sunday.
Dr. Rob Stevenson, a NCCP level II coach, will be on hand to run an eventing clinic for riders on June 3. Stevenson represented Canada at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992 with his horse Risky Business and currently operates a multi-discipline stable with an eventing theme. Riders can sign up to participate in the clinic for $100 by contacting Kim Elliott-Foster at 902-866-3889 or emailing email@example.com
Now in its ninth year, Horse Day is a national initiative created to introduce the public to horses in a safe, fun environment. For many Canadians, Horse Day is the chance to get up close and personal with a horse for the first time, and the opportunity to find out how people of all ages and experience levels can enjoy horses in sport and leisure.
