The Ojibway spirit horse is thought to be the only existing breed of the horse created by Indigenous people in Canada. During this adventure in Chatham-Kent, in Southwest Ontario, visitors will experience firsthand the horse’s majestic beauty and healing capabilities. Gather around a fire to hear stories passed down by generations of First Nations People about their connection to these spiritual animals. The sound of traditional drums and fiddles will stay with you long after you’ve gone home. Stay overnight in a traditional tipi on the stable grounds and continue your experience on Day 2 with a family pass to Point Pelee National Park, the southernmost point of the Canadian mainland.
The future of Canada’s tourism industry can only be built on the framework of responsibility – both from operators and from travellers. This is a core tenet of Landsby’s original conception and it’s something we will continue to work on in the future. With this Southwest Ontario Spirit Horse Experience (with tipi stay), for every reservation, a donation will be made to Acceptional Riders and when the Responsible Traveller Pledge is signed, carbon offsets will be purchased for the transportation portion of your trips from Less Emissions, a provider of carbon offsetting projects in Ontario Southwest.

The Ojibway spirit horse is thought to be the only existing breed of horse developed by the Indigenous people of Canada. With this experience, visitors will receive firsthand knowledge of the horse’s majestic beauty and healing qualities. Gather around a fire to hear stories passed down by generations of First Nations People, as they speak of their deep connection to these spiritual animals. This is an authentic local experience created by First Nations people, as they pass down their history and their ways and the sound of traditional drums and fiddles will stay with you long after you’ve gone home. After a traditional home-cooked meal over the fire (at an additional cost), spend a magical night in a traditional tipi with the spirit horses only meters away.
After breakfast, drive an hour to Point Pelee National Park where you will experience nature as you’ve never experienced before. Spring brings with it flocks of migratory birds, and autumn, waves of vivid Monarch butterflies. Wander the trails in winter and catch the natural ice formations. In Summer, you’ll want to bask on the sunny, sandy beaches. Whether you cycle, paddle, or hike, this is one Canada’s most ecologically diverse national parks – no matter the activity, you’ll be immersed in an unforgettable eco-adventure.
