Posts Tagged ‘Sky Haven Equestrian Centre’

I always love the opportunity to share information on a local business – and it’s even better when the successful business is managed by a young entrepreneur.

 Erica Flak manages the family run business – Sky Haven Equestrian Centre right here in the rolling hills of Bethany, Ontario. Erika has over 18 years of riding experience, including dressage, coaching, jumping and natural horsemanship. Now I have to admit, I had to double check on what ‘dressage’ actually referred to… 

Dressage is an equestrian sport as defined by the International Equestrian Federation. It is the highest level of horse training. Dressage is an art, ensuring the rider can read the horse’s mood, energy level and basically be in harmony with one another.  Putting it very simply, Dressage is teaching a horse to be supple, balanced and responsive. 

Erica continues to train in dressage, with a goal of competing internationally at the highest levels possible.

 Six years ago she began providing horse riding lessons to children and adults at her family farm outside Bethany. She is certified by both CHA and Equine Canada and focuses on hunter-jumper riding with her students. But that is not all! She is also trained to provide various types of therapy and work with horses including laser therapy, massage, and T-touch. Erica has also started Monty Roberts ‘horse whispering’ training in California.

I was very happy to see that Erica was recently featured in the Millbrook Times, “Turning a Passion into a Business in Bethany.”  She is currently busy offering her third year of summer day camp programs for children aged 6 to 14.  She also offers a week of camp open to girls and boys ages 12 to 16 that can currently walk and trot without assistance.   Campers are welcome to bring their own horses if they choose, but the stable has plenty of their own animals to suit all rider levels.
