Starting riding at 4 years old Shauna has always had a passion for horses. Growing up she
knew horses would be a huge part of her life. At age 9 she met her first coach and started
getting more serious with horses, going to competitions, trying new disciplines, and of course
learning lots of new things. At age 16 Shauna had been to over 100 shows all over Ontario from
Fairs to the A Circuit, restarted 3 horses that needed retraining, and found her passion for
Jumping. After graduating College with honors Shauna started coaching at a few farms for a
while but ended up taking a step back from horses and helping out at her Fathers Bouncy Castle
business working with kids and running events becoming COO. When COVID-19 hit, she decided
to get back involved with horses starting Smiling Faces in 2020 with her first horse Mischief.
Smiling Faces Equestrian
Established in 2020 as a hobby farm for horses that needed a home and to be loved.
After rescuing 2 horses and giving them a safe and loving new home we opened to the public in
2021 to share our passion and our horses love with others. In January 2023 we moved to our
new location in AJAX, currently home to 13 horses focusing mainly on rescues. Now offering a
variety of different activities for the whole family to enjoy. We pride ourselves in teaching
others about these magnificent animals in a safe and inviting environment.
