EquiMania! Something to Talk about at Can-Am


A crowd of nearly 20,000 accumulated once again for the Can-Am All Breeds Equine Empori- um in London from


March 18th – 20th. They come for the entertain- ment (with a star studded line up), clinics, shop- ping and who can resist visiting the EquiMania! attraction. Returning EquiMania! fans were impressed with the fresh look of the displays. The pride Canadians feel for having the youth safety initiative featured at WEG was apparent from vis- itor comments. The kids were full of smiles as the volunteers, bearing red EquiMania! shirts, filled their arms full of activities and important take home messages. The newly launched “Danger Detective on the Horse Farm” book was a big hit, boasting 17 pages of games that make learning safety fun. Every visitor wanted one! Speaking of brand new: EquiMania! would like to thank all the speakers who brought their expertise and gave presentations at EquiMania! “U”: Gayle Ecker, Diane Gibbard, Jackie Bel- lamy, Dr. Scott Hie, Carrie Copely, Adam Harri- son and the students from Kemptville and the University of Guelph. True to the nature of the attraction- the talks were informative and interac- tive. Participants were invited to practice their best whinny, handle simulated intestines and absorb information in a show and tell fashion thanks to the industry professionals who donated their time.


Equine Guelph’s Managing Director, Gayle Ecker, is passionately dedicated to helping horses


for life and presented both in EquiMania! “U” and the auditorium, teaching audiences of all ages about horse health. Gayle states, “Equine Guelph is dedicated to serving the horse industry by edu- cating horse owners and paving the way for youth to enter into rewarding careers.”


three raffles: Sam Colyer of Branchton, Ontario, Grace Twiner and Elaine Miller of Dunnville, Ontario. They won polos donated by Pfizer, a cooler donated by Pfizer and an Equine Guelph horse health check basket. Those entering the draw signed up to receive Equine Guelph’s bimonthly E-news informing horse enthusiasts of upcoming events and workshops. One can also sign up on-line at www.EquineGuelph.ca. Equine Guelph thanks all their volunteers and sponsors for another successful year at Can- Am: Kubota Canada, Ontario Equestrian Federa- tion, Pfizer, Shur-Gain, SSG Gloves, Standard- bred Canada, System Fencing and Workplace Safety & Prevention Services.


EquiMania! and Equine Guelph has a full roster of events this summer and will appear next at the Everything Equine Expo in Uxbridge, ON May 14th.
