Great Parks of Hamilton County
It was tough, but this week the staff and students at the Winton Woods Riding Center said good-bye to one of our oldest friends.Winton worked with us for 25 years, and in that time, took more than 1,000 riders on our trails and taught countless students in lessons. He passed away peacefully in the fresh grass, surrounded by people who loved him, including a former student he helped inspire to become a veterinarian, Dr. Hood of Miamitown Equine Veterinary Services.Riding instructor Taylor Schrand bid Winton farewell best: Winton was 29 years old, happy, fat, and sassy. We are all going to miss his big red face around the barns, but know he’s enjoying a relaxing retirement across the rainbow bridge.Image attachment

It was tough, but this week the staff and students at the Winton Woods Riding Center said good-bye to one of our oldest friends.

Winton worked with us for 25 years, and in that time, took more than 1,000 riders on our trails and taught countless students in lessons. He passed away peacefully in the fresh grass, surrounded by people who loved him, including a former student he helped inspire to become a veterinarian, Dr. Hood of Miamitown Equine Veterinary Services.

Riding instructor Taylor Schrand bid Winton farewell best: "Winton was 29 years old, happy, fat, and sassy. We are all going to miss his big red face around the barns, but know he’s enjoying a relaxing retirement across the rainbow bridge."Yesterday we had to say goodbye to our dearest friend Winton. He passed away peacefully in the fresh grass, surrounded by those that loved him.

Winton (or, as his AQHA registration papers say, Sir Winston Straw, or Wonton as he’s lovingly called by many) has been at the Riding Center for 25 years. Many of us can say he taught us a thing or two about riding, whether it was an upper level class like contesting, jumping, dressage, or a lower level class where he taught you about proper spacing and how to ride your first trot steps. Winton was a staple not only in our lesson program, but also our trail ride and badge programs. Winton has taken more than 1,000 people on trail rides over the years, and has been a part of almost every public trail ride we have offered since the day he stepped on our property. If you’ve ever ridden a horse in the Cincinnati area, there’s a good chance it was Winton!

Winton was 29 years old, happy, fat, and sassy. We are all going to miss his big red face around the barns, but know he’s enjoying a relaxing retirement across the rainbow bridge. See ya later, big guy! 🌈

Spiders are amazing! One came in the door with me last night and I escorted it back out!

Charlotte! Hahaha

and I'd probably be the one to walk right in to the 10 foot web. LOL...glad it isn't strong enough to stop us humans and only stops bugs. Can you imagine if it were ?????

My mom had a web (2x4ft) on her back porch -blocking her door. She had to take it down and it was back the next weekend morning. She did this several days before the huge spider moved on. Amazing how intricate the webs can be.

Scary

NOPE!!!!!!
