Bondi Resort Blog

Come on into our Blog for a look at the wonderful world we've got to share! With over 240 hectares (600 acres) of wilderness woodlands surrounding the resort, just ten minutes from Algonquin Park, we feature over 400 metres (1200’) of waterfront and beach; boat rentals; summer hiking trails winding through fields and woods; 20 km. of groomed cross country ski trails and snowshoeing in winter; access to nearby snowmobile trails for sledders, and a toboggan hill for the young at heart.

Ponies, Puppies, Sarah... What a Mix!

Sarah's back!  Carol's grand-daughter spends a few weeks with us each summer, and she's a lot of fun to have here.

This year, she made friends with Taffy the new poodle puppy in about .0002 seconds. They were chasing each other on the lawn, going so fast that Taffy wiped out -- turning three somersaults before returning to the chase.

In her role as Puppy Containment during a lesson Nancy was teaching, Sarah discovered a good use on a cool evening for a warm dog...

She is also learning how to work Squeegee the Wonder Pony "in hand".  That is work without a rider, on a long line, that helps improve the pony's bend and balance.  This also improves the concentration and confirms the voice aids, and is an invaluable tool in the training of any horse or pony.

It requires a lot of concentration from the handler as well, who must keep the pony moving forward on a round circle -- you can see from the tracks that she's done really well at that.

The help Taffy provided was probably not as helpful as the puppy thought it was.

  1. Taffy looks like a big stuffie!

    Remember our "poodle poems" from days of yore?
