About Us

Three Ponds Homestead is our little slice of heaven, hidden away on the outskirts of Orillia/Severn. We are a small family horse farm and newbies to homesteading.

We purchased this adventure property in the winter of 2021 and built our home that year. From the moment we laid eyes on our beautiful 25 acres we knew it was a place that would provide an escape from the hustle and bustle, it would be a place to disconnect to reconnect to what's important to us.

We also knew it would be a place we would share so that people could connect with the serenity here.

We offer glamping, retreats, events, horse boarding and, from time to time, beautiful Aussie Shepherd puppies.

Horse Connection Experience

Get up close and personal with horses on our homestead through a 45 minute guided experience. We will meet and greet the horses and learn a little about each of them. You’ll learn about herd dynamics, horse communication and body language as well as safety.

You will learn a simple breathwork technique to use with the horses to create connection. Guests can participate in grooming, petting, leading, giving the horses treats and of course, a photo op with these majestic beings.

Grooming Horse

There is no riding in this experience, just pure connection and hands on experience with these amazing animals.

The length of this experience may vary according to the group size.
