Site 2 - Tipi Overnight Adventure
Wonderful stay definitely recommend
We had a really wonderful stay. The staff were extremely helpful and accomodating. From collecting us from the train station and making sure we had everything we needed, to even taking us on a small trip to the nearby lake. We stayed in the tipi just next to the pond which was very picturesque. In the evening, we had the spirit horse talk. A lovely lady came and explained a lot about indigenous culture and the impact of the spirit horses, before we went out to greet the horses. It was a very genuine and insightful experience. We then were able to use the facilities to cook up a BBQ and a wood fire. The next day we went trail riding on the horses. It was a new and exciting experience for us. The horses were calm and fairly easy to handle for novices and there was plenty of instruction and encouragement. In the afternoon, we were taken to the lake very kindly by one of the staff members. As the weather was looking to turn stormy in the evening, we switched to the cabin which our hosts had offered us. They helped us move our bags and took us to the grocery store to grab more food too. There's a tonne more great things I could say about this experience but I will leave it there and state the obvious: we would definitely recommend this experience to others! Just make sure you bring some big spray 😉

Tipi Overnight Adventure
A remarkable experience!
It is a privilege to be able to visit TJ Stables. The photos don't show how special it is to be able to be with Terry, John, the rabbits, goats, chickens and roosters, and the horses, of course. Terry and John are very attentive hosts and the animals are so docile. We chose tent 2, that is bigger and accommodates a family of 4+. The tent is unique and spacious. I recommend bringing repellent and book bedding as it gets cold at night and bugs are very active at night. In front of the tent there is a fire pit and a picnic table and a lot of space to explore and have fun.The farm tour is really cool for kids and is really worth doing and they also get a horse walk. There is a playground and a little house for the kids to play too but the beauty is in exploring the land, the colors of the leaves, the history of Terry and the Spirit horses. The spirit horses come to you as they know you. The energy they give you is pure love. It is a unforgettable experience and we are very grateful for these special moments! Thank you so much Terry and John! We will be back for sure!

Little Cabin in the Woods -Sleeps 4
Camping with animals.!
It was a nice little site with only limited people which is good. There is option of horseback riding (needs prebooking which is cool) John the owner was really nice and patient, and gave a us good knowledge about history of wild horses. Will recommend for camping if you dont like a lot of crowd around you. Little bunnies chickens and goats were a plus point
