Our farm is located just west of Barrie Ontario, in the village of Minesing.
We live on 48 acres of land with the most beautiful views from all directions. My husband, Rick, has worked very hard to make our horses and boarders feel at home, with new paddocks, new pasture fields, shelters and beautiful comfortable stalls. He helped to build a beautiful 64' x 120' steel arena and outdoor ring and riding area. The farm would certainly not be what it is today without his support and work ethics..
We own 6 of our own horses, and we are a foster farm for standard bred
horses, from the Ontario Standard Bred Association. They come to us for retraining using the Irwin Horsemanship Training and then are available for adoption to families in the area. Misty and Molly have been with us for over a year and have become a wonderful part of our family. In fact, Molly was adopted out to a wonderful new owner this past fall and we decided to adopt Misty into our family.
This has been a wonderful journey over the past 10 years which began with my youngest daughter Sarah, riding her thoroughbred, Bear. What I saw at the horse shows really got me thinking that there had to be a better way of connecting with your horse. Then my daughters came home and advised me that there was a free, large, yearling...her name was Sasha. A cross between a Belgian and Hackney...more draft then anything. She has sent me on the most incredible journey that I could have ever imagined. I have met the most wonderful people, and I have learned so much in the past 6 years about myself, about the connection between horses and humans and the connections between people. I was a participant in 2 of Chris Irwin's EAPD's. Equine Assisted Personal Development Courses. A group of 6 to 8 people were gathered together for 4days to learn how
to facilitate group clinics using the aid of horses.
Facilitated Equine Experiential Learning
"Horses engage us in Experiential Learning - learning by doing. It is a process through which individuals gain knowledge, acquire skills, and enhance values from direct experience. Facilitated Equine Experiential Learning (FEEL) then reinforces the perceptions of change and promotes integration in individuals daily lives to make the learning's practical and meaningful"
June 2013 Graduate of the FEEL program

for further information in regards to the FEEL experience
" The goal of Facilitated Equine Experiential Learning (FEEL) is about FEELing the experience of the majestic horse that whispers to us about our ability to communicate with others effectively and to listen to ourselves authentically."
I'm so excited about showing people the absolute beauty and magic that our horses at Blue Heron Stables can offer. They have been very clear to me that they are my partners in this journey in which I am the facilitator and they are the teachers. I invite all who are looking for a new experience with horses to take a journey with me and experience the deep connection one can obtain with horses and themselves.
