The Ontario Equestrian Federation (www.horse.on.ca) hosted their annual Horse Day at Toronto’s Exhibition Place Riding Academy so I got a nice early start and arrived at the stables just as the show opened – I was covering the show for http://www.TheRider.com There were tons of little kids patting ponies, horses cantering around the ring, all sorts of pony club info and cool horsey goodies.
I event met legendary Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame jockey Sandy Hawley (left) as well as the lovely ladies from the equestrian division of the 2015 Pan-Am Games (below right) taking place in Caledon, Ontario www.equiman.com
Also met up with Heather Young and her “co-author” Norman the one-eyed horse (below) who read to the kids from Norman’s book. He even autographed each book sold with a hoofprint! www.normanthebook.webs.com
