As a broke and horse-addicted kid, Lillian Tepera cleaned stalls in exchange for riding. She would ride any horse offered to her, and has interesting stories to tell as a result. Now that she bounces less well and has had more sense knocked into her, she is devoted to her small herd of Friesians, and to the fourteen rescue horses who share the farm with them. Lillian and her husband Robert bought Stonegate Farm in 2007 to offer therapeutic riding programs, adding a horse rescue in 2012. The Horse Sanctuary at Stonegate Farm is a registered charity, located in Oro-Medonte, Ontario. Its mission is: People Helping Horses Helping People.
