EquiMania! – Another Record YearApril 2013


Equine Guelph’s interactive youth education attraction wrapped up 2012 at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair this past November with a record number of volunteers. This precedent is set to continue as EquiMania!’s dance card fills up for 2013. EquiMania! kicked off their 2013 tour at the All Equine Show in London, ON March 15 – 17 and barely had time to unpack before the Can-Am Equine All Breeds Emporium, March 28 - 31 at its new location, the Orangeville Fairgrounds.

I don't know who enjoyed it more, me or my 13 year-old. What a great way to experience hands-on, interactive learning in a way that is fun! Believe it or not, I learned a few things and I think my equestrian riding daughter did too. It's an impressive exhibit and a great addition to any equine event."


Thanks to generous continued support from Kubota Canada, Ontario Equestrian Federation, SSG Gloves, System Fencing and Workplace Safety and Prevention Services, Equine Guelph is looking forward to another busy year of touring.


“The popularity of EquiMania! just continues to grow,” says school teacher and repeat volunteer, Marg Murray. “It has the perfect recipe for learning, using engaging activities to deliver important safety messages.”
