Cheri Davidson

Our beginning

Horses have always played a prominent role in Cheri’s life.

As a child she was either drawing them, learning anatomy, performing horse care or taking riding lessons. At the time, she had no idea that her love of horses would not only change her life but the lives of others.

Moving to the farm


In 2001, Cheri and her husband Paul bought a secluded 85 acre farm in the Greater Peterborough Area, just north of Port Hope. This major shift was a dream come true – they were growing roots in the country and caring for horses on their own land.


It is the unique aspect of partnering with horses that drew Cheri to the field of Facilitated Equine Experiential Learning (FEEL). Believing that God creates horses with special gifts to help humans learn to live life fully, she is delighted to be sharing their gifts with people from all walks of life. Cheri has a passion for supporting children and adults who are experiencing anxiety or depression, living with a disability, moving through trauma or life transitions, and bereavement. 


As a graduate of the FEEL Certification program from Horse Spirit Connections (2014), Cheri is honoured to be partnered with her horses in offering Horse Discovery at First Harvest Farm.


Cheri and Paul invite you to visit their farm in the rolling hills of Northumberland County. Escape the busyness of life for an afternoon or full day experience. Book time for your own self-discovery, or bring a friend or partner and experience the horses together. Group sessions will be customized to your interests and goals. Nature hikes, meditation garden and pond, napping hammocks, yoga and hearty picnic meals are available to complete your retreat.
