"Royal" ramblings:  


After traveling far and wide, EquiMania! made the last stop of a trail blazing year at the Royal! The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair is well known for hosting anchor events of the horse show season in Canada but also for bringing the country to the city. Over 23,000 eager school kids had the opportunity to learn about safety and horse sense while navigating their way through the Family Fun Zone in which EquiMania! was a main attraction.

"Awesome! Amazing!"

Equine Guelph thanks all their volunteers and sponsors for another successful year at the Royal: Kubota Canada, Ontario Equestrian Federation, Pfizer, Shur-Gain, SSG Gloves, Standardbred Canada, System Fencing and Workplace Safety & Prevention Services.

EquiMania! will appear next at the Can Am All Breeds Equine Emporium in London, March 18th- 20th to continue the crusade of ‘helping horses for life’ by teaching horse health and safety in a fun, engaging way! Equine Guelph is dedicated to serving the horse industry by educating horse owners and paving the way for youth to enter into rewarding careers. ...READ THE FULL STORY
