Established in 1953 by Steve and Alberta Hughes, Canton Equestrian Center was originally called Lazy S' Stock Farm. The farm started with mainly horses and other various livestock such as chickens, goats and even monkeys! Owen Hughes was born the year Alberta and Steve moved to Canton and has been involved in the farm ever since. Owen married Mary and eventually, in 1988, they started their own business with the construction of a new barn with an indoor arena. Owen has ridden since he was a child and in addition to providing on-site farrier service as an AFA Certified Farrier (CF), he is currently the Master of Foxhounds for The Norfolk Hunt Club.
