Inukshuk Farm

 

 

 

Inukshuk Farm and Equestrian Centre began in 1997 and is located a few minutes west of Selwyn on Birch Island Road.

Our farm is located on a beautiful family owned property and is only only 10 minutes from Bridgenorth, Lakefield or Peterborough. 

Owners, Janice and Miles Ecclestone offer individualized care for each horse and its owner.  They provide horse boarding with special emphasis on individualized programs for both horse and rider, group weekly hacks, group clinics and their commitment is to increasing knowledge and always improving their horse/human partnership and assisting others to do the same.. 

Inukshuk offers a quieter, more private space for clients since they do not run their own lesson program.  They do welcome outside coaches and clinicians and strive to learn from all disciplines with a goal to improving relationships between human and horse.

Visitors are always welcome at Inukshuk Farm as we enjoy sharing our enthusiasm and love for horses.

We chose Inukshuk as the name of our Farm because of the following meaning and also to acknowledge Miles’ two decades of research (on glaciers) in the Canadian Arctic.

The Inukshuk (pronounced IN-OOK-SHOOK) meaning "in the image of man", are magnificent lifelike figures of stone which were erected by the Inuit people and are unique to the Canadian Arctic. Standing across Canada's North, they endure as eternal symbols of leadership, encouraging the importance of friendship and reminding us of our dependence upon one another.
