PHOTOS: Horsing around on the GO Train

 

L’il Ben wasn’t horsing around Monday (Oct. 28) when the miniature horse boarded the GO Train in Port Credit to hitch a ride to Union Station.

In the lead up to the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair (RAWF) that kicks off this weekend, Ben, the fair’s Ambassador, took to the rails to spread the news of the event’s impending kick-off and to make his way to where all the action will be.

Commuters posed for selfies and offered some snuggles as Ben calmly took in the sites and sounds of the big city on his journey to Exhibition Place where he will preside over the largest indoor agricultural fair in the world.

In its 97th year, the Royal is known for its equestrian spectacle, The Royal Horse Show, and for its celebration of food, agriculture, livestock and horsemanship and it attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors annually.

L’il Ben and many other furry farm friends will be hanging around the fair which runs from Nov. 1 to 10 at Exhibition Place.
