Daniel Fathers Clinic

We had a special guest in. Some people might know Daniel Fathers best from his work on the TV Show HeartLand. We had Daniel in for a clinic to share his style of horse training and everyone had a bunch of fun. He shared his passion of horses with the kids.

Daniel took the time to let everyone know you can achieve anything you put your mind to. He shared how he was able to combine his acting career with horse training and even bull riding. It was great having him come by. Daniel spent a little time with everyone and signed autographs too. BuckWheat was in the spotlight that day also.

Halloween Dress Up

The day before Halloween all students were invited to come out and dress up the horse they ride. Students worked in teams for 45 minutes dressing up their horses and ponies. All horses met in the arena where my Mom (the judge) took a good look at them all, and gave each student a prize. After the class all the teams had to take their horses back in the barn and take all the stuff off, pick their feet and a quick brush down. Then they could come back in the arena where we had hot dogs, pop and some munches. Parents were welcome and we even had some grandparents attend. Horses also got their treat for being so patient and awesome. This was given to Aspen Acres students

Special Guest Trick Riding Clinic

We also had some of Canada’s Best Trick Riders in for a clinic to share and provide exposure to their discipline. They focused on what is and isn’t safe to do, and when. Having experts on hand to explain everything in complete detail was fantastic.

A Special Visit

Robert and Deb brought their big friendly giants over to Aspen Acres for an afternoon. They gave students and friends a very memorable time by taking everyone for a ride in their horse drawn wagon.
