Your dream can be a reality

Your dream has been to ride a Friesian horse or a Paint horse on your wedding day, engagement, graduation, birthday, or that special day.  And if not ride, at least get photographs with these magnificent horses. Your dream can come true!

As an example of what we can do for a wedding, we offer the bride and groom, or just the bride or groom, a number of different ways to ride - astride, sidesaddle or bareback. For your engagement photo's, birthday photo's, or just photographing that special day with a horse, we can have you sit on the horse, or stand beside it.

If you want to ride, some previous riding skill is required, but photographs on the ground do not require this.  Please note, we have a lovely location and photographs can be taken here at the farm. Choices include in the forest, by the pond, or near the gardens.

To ride a horse(s) at your wedding or other special day, the event will include the horse(s) coming to the rehearsal and wedding and one ride on the horse(s) before the wedding. We lead the horse(s) for you at no extra cost.

Your riding skill will be assessed on your first ride with our Paint gelding named Cloud. To see his picture go to Paint Horses

As each wedding or special event is different, so is the cost. For an estimate of your special day, please consider the following:

1. How many km's to and from the site from Rockwood ON. 
2. Your riding skill. Charge will be based on how many rides you need on Cloud or one of the Friesians. 
3. How you wish to ride. No difference in cost for astride or bareback, but if sidesaddle there is an additional cost for the sidesaddle consultant.
4. For photographs only. This option has only a horse and transporting cost.
5. How many horses you wish to have attend your wedding or special event.

Photograph information
Separate from the Friesian horse experience, we can provide photographers for your wedding or special event, or give suggestions to your photographer to get great photo's with the horse(s).

Below, on the attached video is an example of what we can do.  Please see the video of pictures taken of wedding in May 2012 in Fergus. Pictures were taken by one of our photographers and put into the video format for the bride. Individual pictures can be purchased at a cost. Plus look at the wedding photo's taken in 2014. Both Friesians had  2013 off as they were in foal.
