Everyone needs "deserves" some down time! 

There is nothing more soothing that the sound of a horses breath, the feel of their power, the companionship and trust between human and horse.  it's not something that can be described in words or print.  It is a feeling of total freedom and non judgement.  

Iron Spirit Farm truly believes in everyone.  There is no categories such as age, gender, physical abilities, cognitive levels or any other social separations.  Being with horses brings out the best in everyone, no matter the skill level or goals.  

To be a part of such a diverse group of individuals on a daily basis is such a reward, I can't thank everyone enough for just being themselves and coming out to enjoy time at the farm.

Horses create a calming effect for humans.

 The relationship and bond between horse and human is hard to describe. Once you have experienced it, it’s hard to imagine never have.

The partnership is reciprocal. Horses are by nature flight animals, combine that with the average weight of a horse being over 1000lbs. It’s easy to understand that they work in partnership with us because they have trust.

It is well recognized that horses are great healers when it comes to those struggling with PTSD, social anxiety, learning struggles and a host of other areas that affect individuals lives.

We offer group planning sessions that have been known to assist families, staff teams and individuals in moving forward. This is beneficial when a group or person is "stuck" or just would like a plan to move forward. Highly recognized in the UK for being a resource for people who are struggling with emotional crisis, learning disorders, social anxiety as well as for teams who are just starting out or who may have new team members and staff restructuring.

The world is ever changing. Many staff teams are downsizing, restructuring, changing staff duties and following more of business model approach which is sometimes difficult for teams to grasp without a clear plan and a feeling of being "involved" in the planning of changes.

Full planning session including horse time, refreshments, goal planning session and use of newly renovated wellness cottage.

What our customers are saying

We consider Iron Spirit Farm a real gem in Southern Ontario. The farm offers affordable lesson fees and extremely well priced group lessons for everyone wishing to experience horseback riding. At the farm, there is an abundance of fun activities organized for children and adults of all ages. Every single riding lesson, camp or activity is well organized and carried out with great care and joy. As a result, our son regularly attends group rides, camps and birthday party celebrations. A great bonus to the horseback riding participants is that owner, teacher and activity coordinator, Tina Gifford holds qualifications to deal with children and adults from various backgrounds. Such benefit ensures that participants are well cared for during their adventure at the farm. We highly recommend Iron Spirit Farm!
