I saw a child …

by John Anthony Davies

I saw a child who couldn’t walk, sit on a horse, laugh and talk
Then ride through a field of daisies and yet he could not walk unaided.

I saw a child, no legs below, sit on a horse, make it go through woods of green
and places he had never been to sit and stir except from a chair.

I saw a child who could only crawl, mount a horse and sit up tall
Put it through degrees of paces and laugh at the wonder in our faces

I saw a child borne into strife, take up and hold the reins of life
and that same child was heard to say Thank god for showing the way.

Y NOT Farms & Equestrian Centre, located in the rolling green hills of Meaford, hold arguably the biggest and most exciting Reining event ever staged in Canada.

Reining is the fast-growing discipline within the diverse range of equestrian events. Horses perform amazing manoeuvres: 360 spins performed at top speed, full gallops to lopes, and most exciting of all, high-speed stops where the horse plants its rear quarters and slides to a stop with sand spraying everywhere.

Dun It

Y NOT Farms and Equestrian Centre is more than just another stable and riding facility with arenas, stables and clinics. Y NOT is about ‘horses as companions’, with riders and mounts gaining self esteem and respect.

Although Y NOT serves various riding disciplines, its focus … its dream is Reining.

Located on 100 acres of rolling hills with a majestic view of Georgian Bay, Y NOT Farms is a pastoral getaway, the perfect place to renew the spirit and soothe the soul.

The natural setting of the 100-acre farm has been enhanced with the addition of lilacs and roses along new winding roadways and trails. Meandering between the hills and trails are protected streams and fish habitats teaming with rainbow trout. The property also features numerous bridges and crossings with rustic fencing to protect the stream shorelines for the rainbow trout..
