No Horsing Around!

A recent newsletter circulating throughout the area reports that “Cedar Run,” better known as The Thornbury Horse Park is progressing favourably and that a significant amount of development work has thus far been completed.
Peter Lush the principal stakeholder in the project reports that “a group of highly talented and experienced individuals” has been assembled “to support our efforts to create a great Park.” Located near the junction of Grey Road 2 and Clark Street (aka the Clarksburg Sideroad) this facility will consist of a world-class equestrian facility, residential condominiums and other club amenities with Georgian Bay, Blue Mountain and the Beaver Valley as a backdrop. Work that is scheduled to be completed this year includes the construction of jumps, the building of a fourth pond, further establishment of grass in the competition areas and the completion of trails throughout the grounds etc.
Cedar Run is being billed as Canada’s first world-class multidisciplinary equestrian facility offering something for both equestrian enthusiasts and the general public alike. Once completed, the facility will host a variety of equestrian competitions and will have the potential to accommodate up to 1,700 horses at a time. Facilities/activities such as this are having a tremendous impact on diversifying the area’s recreational amenities making the Georgian Triangle area an increasingly desirable location for people of all interests to come. I wish the organizers of this bold venture every success with this exciting initiative.
