I moved from Victoria to live in the West Kootaneys of British Columbia, Canada and have a growing herd of N. Fjords. As a child I enjoyed working my way through the Pony Club levels to C2 with my Tennessee Walker x gelding. I enjoy dressage, jumping, and trail riding. I follow the Lyon's method of ground work and training and see the results on every ride out on my stallion and young stock. I'm now learning about the sport Trec and I am trying it on for size. All my horses are barefoot and I trim them myself, it's hard work but very rewarding. My son is growing independent (teenager) so I hope to start regular lessons again this comming season and I am looking forward to learning and growing as a rider and horse owner.
