Bruce Gonyaw has been riding his whole life; his connection to horses runs deep. For the past 30 years, Bruce has sold horses and organized trail rides and cowboy weekends at his 200-acre farm in Brownington. Visitors drive up to six hours to purchase backyard family horses from Bruce, who frequently travels around the country to find the best steeds. While the pandemic forced Bruce to shut down a summer camp, it also provided a jump in sales. The recent rush to get outdoors has led to a higher demand for equine companions, and Bruce is happy to fill that need.
Eva visited with Bruce, got a tour of his farm in an ATV, and met his pulling ponies and a registered American Quarter Horse named Impuls Good N Hot.
