I was a working student for 4 years. My responsibilities included regular barn chores, assisting in the buying and selling of lease horses, training rides and showing on the green horses, ground work with the foals and young horses.
I have worked with foals and broodmares over the past 3 years. I have been involved in the breeding process, halter training and weaning.
I have learned a lot about bringing along young horses and have had the pleasure of doing training with them for extended periods of time. Some I have helped with since they were a foal and now a riding horse.
Type of Ride Work
I have had experience starting young horses and bringing along green horses for the past 6 years. I have experience halter-breaking foals and weanlings. As well as starting and riding 3-year-olds: long lining, introducing bridle and saddle, desensitization and, lunging.
I have had training in dressage up to second level and shown A circuit jumpers up to 1.10m. I do have a background in trillium level hunters up to 3'6.
I have organized competitions for the Ontario Collegiate Equestrian Association for their 2021-22 season in the central zone.
