English Riding Instructor
As a young girl Vanessa always took every chance she could get to spend time horses and get a pony ride, but finally at the age of 10 she begin riding lessons on a regular basis.
After a few years of lessons and leasing Vanessa fell in love with jumping and showing. She soon after got her first pony Flirt for one of her birthdays. Vanessa showed flirt all over the Maritimes in the large pony hunters and the .9 jumpers until she out aged her.
Along with her pony and the years to follow Vanessa has had the chance to own and show a variety of other horses, mainly in the hunters. She now spends her time working with her Canadian Warmblood mare Athena, or as many people know her “Going Dutch” in the show ring. They have experience in the Adult hunters in the Maritimes as well as on the Ontario circuit.
As for coaching Vanessa has been working with many riders at various facilities over the last 5 years. She loves to teach younger riders to build a solid foundation but also enjoys working with the more advanced riders on further developing their riding, and building a stronger relationship with their horse.
