horses... the natural connection

Back of Beyond Equine Centre is a Christian horse farm serving the Muskoka community. We strive to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ through horses, faith in action, prayer, and the power of the Holy Spirit. Back of Beyond is a sanctuary for rescued and retired horses; a place where they are dearly loved, well cared for and where they can live out their days in peace. The horses of Back of Beyond have served hundreds of children and adults over the years and formed many special relationships with their favourite person.

Featured Activity


Your private visit with Santa begins when you climb aboard the red sleigh, pulled by one of the horses, for short sleigh ride to Santa’s North Pole Stables!

As your sleigh pulls up, Santa himself will come out to greet you. This is your chance to visit with him, from your sleigh, outdoors and socially distanced. During your visit, Santa’s helper will take a family photo, with Santa, on your own phone and give you a candy cane. End your visit with a cup of delicious hot chocolate and a tour of the farm to meet the 15 resident horses and ponies. Don’t be surprised if this is the best Santa visit ever!

New for Christmas 2021Book a professional photo shoot with Flutter Photography Services at Back of Beyond. There are two options to choose from; Photo Booth with a Horse OR Family Portrait Mini-Session.
