Carolyn is a co-founding member of the new youth club where she is the teacher reg. all minis. She has been the 4-H leader in the Georgian Triangle Miniature Horse Club for 3 years. She has enormous patience and her teaching skills are nothing short of amazing! She loves sharing her knowledge and is always encouraging both young and 'old' to give it their best."

"Carolyn Aarup turns her horses out to a 'T' and they are well behaved & mannerly. I appreciate the fact that Carolyn's stallions are disciplined and refrained from 'studdy' behavior. It's not easy showing stallions and Carolyn should be commemorated for promoting the breed to its fullest potential by showing well groomed & well behaved stallions."

In December 2012, "Dakotawinds Favonius" (aka Favio), a weanling Miniature Horse colt owned by Carolyn Aarup of Dakota Winds Farm (DWF), was honoured to be part of the filming opening of a Children's TV show. The show, "This is ... Season 3", a Treehouse On Air Promotions by Sinking Ship Entertainment of Toronto, is a spin off of the original series, "This is Daniel Cook/Emily Yeung". This educational children's show features a young host/hostess who explores the world around him/her and allows children to view everything from the child host's perspective. The two new generation child stars of the show were filmed walking "Favio" across the set and also got to feed him carrots. Favio's part will be included in the opening introduction of each episode begininng this fall of 2013 on the Treehouse Channel. The producers are hoping it will be aired in many different countries similar to the past seasons which aired in over 100 countries. Carolyn and Natalie Aarup of DWF were on hand to help ensure Favio did what the TV Producers needed him to do.
