I have my G class drivers license and a valid first aid and CPR certificate. I have knowledge in bandaging, clipping, braiding, setting courses, grooming, administering medication, and much much more. I am willing to learn more and am able to accept constructive criticism and learn from it.
I have worked at The Real Canadian Superstore for the past 5 years. I have worked in the hot deli, cold deli, and garden centre departments. I also used to work at TSC Stores as well as a thoroughbred breeding and sales farm.
My passion is horses...I am happiest while around horses in ANY capacity. I have been taking hunter riding lessons for the past 12 years. I have shown at various levels throughout those 12 years. I am now "branching out" into different disciplines and am currently taking jumper lessons.
I groom for different people at provincial Trillium Hunter horse shows. Typically the mounts I groom for are young inexperienced horses. I also farm sit for many different equine families while they are away on vacation which includes blanketing, feeding, cleaning stalls, riding, setting courses, cleaning the barns, turnout, administering medication when required, and general care for all animals and overall barn management. I have worked on a thoroughbred breeding farm handling stallions, yearlings, and weanlings as well.
I have been riding in the English hunter discipline for 12 years now. I have the experience of riding many different horse personalities as well as occasionally catch riding with an extreme willingness to learn more about this amazing sport. I have started to learn and ride a jumper which I am also loving. I am very excited to learn more about all disciplines of riding.
I have competed on the South West Trillium circuit for 2 years. Unfortunately, due to lack of funding I haven’t been able to show and compete as much as I would have liked. I have experience in catch riding at Fanshawe equestrian shows, trillium and prelude shows. I took my short stirrup and C equitation ponies to championships as well. I have also just started doing some local jumper schooling shows. When I was younger I was awarded the high points winner and overall division champion as well.
