August Rush

Posted on August 27, 2012 at 3:45 PM

August has been a very tragic month for us. Unfortunately, Email, my FEI mare suffered an aortic anneurism while being wrapped in the barn, and passed away at the age of 14, August 7, 2012. This of course came as a huge shock, and we are all feeling her loss.

The mystery illness I have been afflicted with all summer is starting to subside, thanks to the help of my 'team' of doctors. This means I've been in the saddle more, now that I've emotionally recovered from the shock of losing my dancing partner. I am still moving to Hamilton, and will be working at M2 Dressage. In addition to this, I will be offering a few lessons a week in the Hamilton region, and returning to Calgary once a month to teach clinics here. If interested in clinics in Calgary or lessons in Hamilton, please contact me at

Our next clinic is scheduled for September 22-23, 2012 and is $100/private lesson.

While I am in Ontario, I have decided to name Robin Donais as the interm instructor. Robin has a keen eye for horses, and although she has not had much experience in the coach's chair, she has many years of experience working with all levels of horses. Robin specializes in the jumper ring, and I hope to broaden our program with different specializations. If interested in Calgary lessons with Robin, please email her at Please note that lessons with Robin require attendance in our monthly clinics.

Anyways, that's it for now. Hopefully September will bring us better luck.
