The Holiday season isn’t happy for everyone. Each year we come together: HJC, our volunteers and the ponies to give back and try to make a few happy faces.

From 10-1 myself, our horses and as many HJC volunteers as we can muster, will be Offering FREE pony rides. 

Meet our horses, have some cider and if you can contribute (only if) make a donation and we'll pass it on to Anderson house to try and help someone have a better Christmas this year. We can't change what's happened but we may be able to make a difference somewhere. This event is about how many smiles we can put on the faces of young people and if we make a little bit of money for a fabulous cause? All the better!

Great time to get your mom or dad on a horse for the first time, or at least a photo op! ;)

I'll even play Christmas Carols in the barn!

This will be our last free pony ride event at 271 Cornwall Road due to the route of the Cornwall bypass - we are currently making every effort to relocate and hope that we will be welcoming you in 2017 to our new location.

Trina Campbell @ HJC!

More details will be made available soon - spots are limited call or email Ellen to get on the list: 894-5452 or info@thehughesjonescentre.ca 

Learn how to ride with timing and feel. If you want to improve your relationship & performance with your horse this clinic is for you. All disciplines and experience levels welcome.

As many of you know we met Trina at the Legacy of Legends event in Las Vegas. Owner of Hat Creek Ranch in Wyoming, Trina was born in Canada and runs Hat Creek ranch with her husband Peter Campbell clinician and horseman. Trina has travelled the world acquiring a variety of horsemanship skills ranging from riding world class jumpers to working ranch horses. Trina is currently managing their ranch in Wyoming starting colts, riding horses for the public and raising quarter horses and cattle and of course teaching clinics in her spare time.

After a most amazing experience hosting her here we have decided to try and do 2 clinics a year instead of going to the Legacy event as we saw such improvements in our horses and ourselves after our first weekend May 2014. It is the chance of a horse career to be mentored by such a deeply experienced person. Follow her blog, Your Inner Cowgirl and read about her experience on PEI in May 2014 here: http://yourinnercowgirl.com/2014/05/05/an-amazing-weekend/ . You can also contact Trina directly by email: trc@wildblue.net

HJC is excited to be partnering with dog trainer Jane Northrup to present a dog training clinic specifically for the youth of your house hold.

This clinic series aims to use clicker training (positive reinforcement) to improve the dog handling and understanding skills of youth. All sessions will take place in our horse arena at HJC.

All you need is your own dog!

This clinic series will be offered in 2 age groups: 10 - 12 and 13 - 16 years of age with a maximum of 5 participants (and their trusty dogs) per group. Participants should be strong enough to handle their dogs. Clinics will run on Wednesday evenings starting July 6th and ending August 3rd.

The first lesson on July 6th will be without your dog - with Jane demonstrating certain skills with her own dog and what can be expected as we go forward. Parents are welcome to stay for this portion of the program.

Dogs must be older than 6 months of age and other dog friendly. There's no such thing as not being able to teach an old dog new tricks!

Price for the 5 week session $125 HST included. Please contact Ellen at: info@thehughesjonescentre.ca for more information.

Pilot Young Women's Leadership Program (Ages 11 -14)

  • The Hughes-Jones Centre for People and Animals (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS
Girls reported that the greatest barrier to leadership is a lack of self-confidence in their own abilities.  ~Change It Up, Girl Scout Research Institute

HJC is rolling out a pilot program of leadership while working with horses targeting young women this 2016 summer season.

Sessions will be focussed on youth 11- 14 years in age and divided between age and exposure levels to horses. The majority of work will be on the ground with the horses learning practical horsemanship skills targeted toward building leadership qualities in young women.

One of the key practical skills in working with horses is leading. In teaching people how to lead a horse, universal leadership skills are imparted on students by simply learning how to work with horses. We are looking to build on that skill set helping young women nurture their leadership qualities outside of the stable.

What is leadership in youth?

From “Leadership Development: An Examination of Individual and Programmatic Growth,” authors Conner and Strobe define youth leaders as individuals “who think for themselves, communicate their thoughts and feelings to others, and help others understand and act on their own beliefs." the leadership model described by Schoenberg and Salmond in “Exploring Leadership,” a report from the Girl Scouts Research Institute, encourages youth to take on increasing responsibility, requires them to be involved participants in designing and implementing activities, and explores how youth, like adults, can have an impact in their current environment.  ~ The Power To Lead, A Leadership Model for Adolescent Girls, CARE

CARE recognized 5 key characteristics of youth leaders as: voice\assertion, decision making\action, self-confidence, organization, vision\ability to motivate others. 

As a pilot program sessions for the 2016 season will operate at a value rate ($60 for 4 2 hour sessions) and involve surveys throughout the process. We are fine tuning this program and are looking to evaluate it's effectiveness and demand within the community. 

Group size will remain small with no more than 4 participants per session.

At present we are looking for girls between the ages of 11 and 14 years of age who are interested in this type of program and are looking to get closer to horses.

Activities will include:

  • Ground work
  • Body language (how to approach your horse\how your horse reads you)
  • The importance of body language.
  • Hooking on\Join-Up (how to effectively partner with your horse)
  • What your horse sees in you.
  • Demonstrations
  • What is leadership to you?
  • Grooming (and it's importance)
  • Leading (how to convince a 1000 pound flight animal to trust you)
  • What is assertiveness and assertion?
  • How to be assertive.
  • Planning and making a decision.
  • Safety

All activities involve hands on work with horses and are horsemanship skill based.

Beginner Horseback Riding Clinic

The Hughes-Jones Centre will be offering a special 2 hour introductory clinic for first time horseback riders on May 21st.


The two hour session will take participants from the ground to saddle with their horses, giving them a snapshot into work with horses. We will cover the basics of grooming, saddling\tacking up your horse and as well as a short mounted lesson.

We will offer two age groups throughout the day: 9- 11 years old and 12-14 years old with small group size to ensure quality of education. This is an excellent opportunity to try out horseback riding and all the barn has to offer, before the busy summer season. 

We are offering this program in conjunction with the Town of Cornwall, please contact Zane Nicholson to register!

Communal Garden at HJC with special partner PEI Heart and Stroke Foundation

  • The Hughes-Jones Centre for People and Animals (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Join us this spring at the Hughes-Jones Centre for People and Animals to plant, maintain, and harvest one large communal garden and some special raised beds (as advertised in the Cornwall News letter).

A communal garden is different from a community garden in the respect that we will all share the responsibility in planting, weeding and maintaining the garden throughout the growing months. This reduces the time committment for everyone and allows us all to share our knowledge, experience, time and eventually reap the rewards of beautiful produce for all of our hard work.

Our garden and raised beds will not be touched by pesticides and will be fertilized with the HJC horse's finest composted manure (they are on a very healthy diet!).

Heart healthy meal ideas and "how to" clinics will be hosted at HJC for example - how to stew your own tomatoes for fresh tasting pasta sauce year round. All clinics are optional to attend and FREE.

This is a FREE initiative made possible by the PEI Heart and Stroke Foundation and HJC.

Space is limited. Please register by contacting Ellen at: info@thehughesjonescentre.ca

The produce that is grown will be shared with participants and any extra produce will be given to Cornwall families in need.

We will be having our last lesson of the summer season August 28th and closing to reset for our fall schedule.

Our horses have earned a break and so have our staff!!

Thank-you for supporting HJC and remember to book your fall lessons with Ellen!
