About Us

Have You ever wanted to Experience how it feels to lead a Horse?

Equine Assisted Learning is Unbelievable!

We have a 12 lessons focused on encouraging personal growth aswell as growth within your relationships. Some of the skills you will build include, confidence, creativity, listening, and team building. 

It all happens in the arena, with you and your team, guiding one of our horses through obstacles. Since horses can not talk, they use their body language to let you know what they are thinking. So naturally, you will learn many things from our horses, and I as a trained facilitator, guide you through the objective of the day and how to incorporate it into your life outside of the arena. 

Cartier Farms in Saskatchewan created the quality program, and Dreamwinds here in Bradford, ON is a satellite farm.

It is an experience that is truly beneficial for everyone!


Katarina Niemi has a passion for working with children, and being with horses has always been special for her. She comes from a family of 10 children and grew up working hard and having fun on their farm. From a young age,  she wanted to start her own business. 

While Katarina searched for something that she could pursue, the idea was planted. She found an equine assisted learning program, and a few months later, she found herself becoming a trained facilitator.

Katarina Niemi’s mission is for people to feel empowered to have strong relationships.

Horses have a special way of teaching us the most important things in life!

My 5 year old daughter really enjoyed attending Niemi summer camp! She got to experience farm life and taking care of the animals. The instructors were great!

My daughter loved camp so much that she asked to go back another week and invited a bunch of her friends. It was lovely that she enjoyed the outdoors, the many activities that Katarina and Laura put together (s’mores, feeding animals, brushing horses, planting to name a few), and the friends she made! I can’t recommend this camp enough!

My daughter LOVED this camp! She went in smiling everyday and was always sad to leave. Her belly was always full, her legs tired from all the running and fun, not to mention her smile from cheek to cheek whenever we talked about her experience.

This program is one we will be returning to!

Being from the heart of Toronto and not having a ton of access to the rural parts of our country I was very excited when I came across Niemi Family Farm and their Equine Assisted Learning March Break camp. My son, who is almost 8 and loves being outdoors and away from the hustle and bustle of urban life loved it. He enthusiastically fed the animals, played in the snow, planted in the greenhouse and worked with the horses. He learned so much about teamwork, building relationships with both people and animals, how to regulate his emotions and be calm when working with his peers and the horses. It was an incredible experience and I will be signing him up for another session over the summer. Katarina was kind, patient and very experienced in bringing her love of the farm and horses to these young children.
