I started at Handibear Hills at 4 years old in the Smalls Program. This would have been in 2006. Mostly I rode a small bay pony with the personality the size of a Clydesdale. His name was Breezy. I moved away from PEI a few short years later but I have always cherished and held onto my memories of the sanctuary and of Yogi. I am now a horse trainer specializing in soft and slow foundational training as well as turning young horses that had a rough go into performance horses or kids horses. I credit a lot of my knowledge and passion to Handibear Hills and to the fabulous people and horses like Breezy and Yogi.
