Linda was bitten by the horse bug when she was just a child but, it wasn't until her late teens that she was able to pursue her dreams of taking riding lessons and eventually purchasing her own horse and then showing.
In 1989 her pursuit for knowledge led to her becoming an Equine Canada Certified Competition Coach Specialist as well as High Performance Theory. In 1990 she became an Equine Canada Coach Developer and evaluates Rider Level 1 - 10 exams as well as Instructor, Competition Coach and Competition Coach Specialist evaluations and Ontario Equestrian clinics and workshops.
Linda`s show career included hunter/jumper, equitation and dressage and she is one of only a small number of coaches in Canada that coaches both disciplines. Linda has produced many Champion riders and horses in those divisions throughout her career. Linda has also been the coach/mentor of the Toronto Police Mounted Unit for over 25 years.
At the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in November 2017, Linda was honored to receive the prestigious award of Certified Coach of the Year 2017 from Ontario Equestrian. This award was presented to Linda by Ian Millar who is Canada`s most decorated equestrian athlete.
Her passion and philosophy is designed to develop polished, accountable riders and coaches who are skilled in all aspects of horsemanship and sportsmanship for the beneficial welfare of the horse. Her personal mission is to develop students by providing positive, instructive feedback and an interactive learning process to achieve knowledgeable and confident riders.
