Blue Heron Stables
Blue Heron Stables
connecting horse and human through body, mind & spirit
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 where lessons with horses and workshops
and private sessions are conducted. His support
and incredible work ethics is a major part of why
Blue Heron Stables is what it is.
We are care givers to 7 of our Blue Heron Stable horses. Two of the horses were foster horses from the Ontario Standard Bred Association. Misty and Roma have been an incredible addition to our herd of teachers and guides. Bella, Sasha, Jess, Magic and Georgie have added their wisdom and teachings to all who have had the privilege of meeting them.
My journey with horses began with Bear who became my daughter's best friend. We learned so much together as mother and daughter, but also as human and horse. It was with Bear's patience while we both learned what life looks like to a horse in the competitive world, that he allowed us to make our mistakes, and learn and open our hearts to those people around us who would help us find a new way to be with horses. It hasn't been an easy road, but in the end, the 7 horses that gather at this farm, have given ME the courage to follow a path in which I truly believe they have been waiting for.
As we no longer ride any of our Blue Heron Stable horses, it was a decision based on a nine year journey which took me to a place called HORSE SPIRIT CONNECTIONS. It is where I was able to connect with people who were also searching for a different way to be with horses. The road to Tottenham, Ontario, led me to finding a new path to forge while still maintaining the skills and knowledge of the horse language taught to me by CHRIS IRWIN and the many Irwin Trainers who I was grateful to meet and form friendships with over the past many years.
