A Bit About Me
My love for horses started as a little girl, I have been attracted to them for as long as I can remember. When I finally convinced my parents to let me take riding lessons, I was instantly hooked. At age 12, I was already working all summer as a trail guide in a stable nearby my parents home in Quebec and taking English riding lessons at Centre Equestre Val-Morin, QC. That is where my first coach, Marie-Claire Savard and not too long after, my first boss, Denys Casavant, inspired me to pursue a career in the horse industry. After getting a College Degree in Equine Science at ITA La Pocatiere, QC. I made my way west to work at Spruce Meadows, AB. Having the chance to ride and train under the supervision and mentoring of the great Albert Kley has been without a doubt, one of the best things that happened to me. My path then changed a bit when I decided to have a family, but the passion never died, it only grew stronger. I am so excited to have come back to my roots to share my passion with others and spend my days among those who taught me the most in life; the horses.
The horse will always be your best teacher.
My first priority is for my students to learn to respect and love horses for the noble animal they are! In the saddle, I strongly believe in the importance of developing strong basics, including a good seat and aids coordination but also learning to control your thoughts and emotions while working with horses. Spots are limited so please contact me for more information and availability.

She's smart and have a very kind and calm demeanour. She's lightly started under saddle and goes walk, trot, canter and over poles.
