Can-Am president, Ross Millar hands over a cheque for $5,000 to Equine Guelph for new developments in the EquiMania! youth program“It’s all about giving back to the grass roots,” says Can-Am president, Ross Millar as he hands over a cheque for $5,000 to Equine Guelph for new developments in the EquiMania! youth program. “We are proud to be working with Equine Guelph as the results achieved by this team are always apparent. Every year they bring interesting, new learning objects to the Can-am show and we look forward to continuing our support with an even bigger auction at our next show!”


Equine Guelph thanks the silent auction donors and some very special coordinators including Janice Blakeney, and Can-Am Equine Emporium president, Ross Millar. Thanks to the generous contributions from loyal supporters of Equine Guelph, a silent auction was held on Saturday March 30, 2013 at the Can-Am show.


"We are very excited to be continually launching new educational programs for youth. EquiMania! is a wonderful learning opportunity for horse enthusiasts that continues to grow in popularity," says Gayle Ecker, Director of Equine Guelph. “Thank you so much to Ross Miller and all who donated items for the auction last March.” An entirely new second display has been built this year and will reside at the Minnesota State Fair. In addition to being a popular attraction at Canadian shows, EquiMania! will be entertaining and educating a wide audience south of the boarder.
