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.

Open Wide

Kevin Rundle, Equine Dental Specialist, rolls into the stable twice a year.

Care of the horses' teeth goes way beyond just ensuring there are no sharp edges that can catch on the tongue or cheeks, especially when a bit is involved.

The entire balance of the mouth matters to a performance horse.  The most under-appreciated joint is, I think, the TMJ.

It is incredible how that joint, and the hyoid bone in the horse's throat, can actually impact the way a horse moves.

Our vet comes along, too -- she is the one who administers the medication and tranquillizers to make this an easy day for the horses. And we get vaccines done at the same time.

But it is Kevin who is the star of this show.
