Fairly Big Farm
Caring for horse and rider since 2009
Fairly Big Farm is a family equestrian business, owned and operated by Terri-Lynn Hughes, her husband Peter Burdon and son Ben.
Our "fairly big farm" became a reality in 2004 when we purchased a century old sheep farm in the heart of the Oak Ridges Moraine. We loved the property because of its rolling hills and sandy soil that we felt was ideal for horses.
Its close proximity to Toronto was also a huge bonus.
In 2005, we erected our first paddock, and within weeks our first two horses were happily grazing.
Terri-Lynn and Peter decided to open the farm to boarders and students in 2009. They completely renovated 2 century old sheep barns, added numerous paddocks, and built a beautiful wood arena. From that one paddock we have grown to a full service equestrian facility.
Terri-Lynn has been a horse lover and owner her entire life. In her late teens she spent a year apprenticing at an Eventing Barn in Caledon where she learned horse and farm management and care. Years later she fulfilled her dream of operating a lesson, boarding and training facility.
While Terri-Lynn loves riding, she finds sharing her experience and knowledge with riders of all ages and abilities through one on one, and semi-private lessons, to be most rewarding. Absolute beginners to experienced competitors benefit from Terri-Lynn's commitment to learning and teaching the correct, safe and especially fun way to ride and work with horses.
