Follyfoot Farm had it's humble beginnings as a small horse farm in beautiful Metchosin. Sadly, our family outgrew the property and made the tough decision to move on. After spending a number of years boarding our horses out in Victoria, in October of 2019, our family bought acreage in the gorgeous Cowichan Valley and now call Duncan home. Extensive renovations to the property have happened and are continuing to happen, the best of which is our all season sand riding ring! We had to sacrifice some of our pasture for the ring but we still have two grass areas for the horses to kick up their heels and enjoy the three "F's" so integral to horse welfare....Friends, Freedom and Forage. The barn now has five generous sized walk-out stalls with half walls so the horses can easily see each other when inside, post and rail paddocks, cross-tie areas and a beautiful and heated tackroom with mini fridge and microwave. Future plans include a viewing deck off of the top floor of the barn looking out over the ring and an outside covered wash rack. As an eventer, I'm determined to also find places to build a few cross country jumps!
When I can't ride anymore, I shall keep horses as long as I can hobble along with a bucket and wheelbarrow. When I can't hobble, I shall roll my wheelchair out by the fence of the field where my horses graze, and watch them. ~Monica Dickens
