Stay tuned for exciting updates!
When did you start riding: I started riding when I was 9 years old
What inspired you to start? I’ve always loved horses and would ride the horses/ponies at fall fairs every chance I got. My nana really was the one that inspired me to ride because she had enough holidays saved up that she could take the summer off, and offered to put me in a riding program in Belleville for summer camp at Glamorgan farms!
What inspires you now: I’m inspired now by the level of competition that is in Eventing. If you want to be one of the top riders you have to work every day and every ride for it. I’m inspired by the dedication that goes into training such top-quality horse and being able to have them feeling and looking their absolute best for top level Eventing.
Which riders inspire you? The riders that inspire me to keep pushing through the good and the bad days are: Event riders Micheal Jung and Selena O’Hanlon, Show Jumpers Ian Miller and Tiffany Foster, and finally dressage riders Charlotte Dujardin and Jacqueline Brooks.
What are your goals for the future: My goals for the future are to keep moving up the levels in Eventing. This summer, especially, is to improve on my Show Jumping mind set, compete at Bromont in Quebec, build my name up to reach more sponsors and reach my ultimate goal of finding an owner/owners to ride/work for, to be able to show more than one horse. My ultimate goal is to represent Canada at the Olympic Games !!
What is your favourite show memory: My favourite show memory is when Cougar and I won Caledon horse trials after only being a team for 2 months on our Dressage score of 28.6.
Why do you believe bodywork is important: I believe body work is important because it reduces pain and stress on the body, it improves circulation, decreases inflammation, improves energy and relaxes the muscles. When bodywork is done regularly and all of these things are happening for our horses, it makes it less painful for them to do their job and perform the movements we ask of them freely. I feel that if we are going to seek help for our bodies in top performance as an athlete, then our horse athletes need help to keep them feeling top notch as well!
