Ruckus Rider

Welcome to Edenview, where anything is possible with vision and a sense of humour.

I wrote and posted those words at the entrance of my barn within the first few days of moving my entire family to our new home and epic adventure. It's hard to believe we survived that transition and I'm 100% certain that no amount of mental gymnastics could have prepared us for the journey that lay ahead. But truth be told I'm having a blast! Coaching, training, and boarding horses has been a dream of mine for more years than I care to admit. Please, join me for a humorous and insightful look into my life as the "Ruckus Rider."

Equitation = Rider Mechanics

This past weekend I was happy to lend a hand to the University of Ontario & Institute of Technology and Durham College Equestrian Team for a ‘Rider Mechanics’ workshop. The Triple Crown Equestrian Team competes on the Ontario University Equestrian…

Time to Reassess Goals

“Looking where you’re going might not get you where you want to be, but looking where you want to be ensures you’ll get there.” Riders need to realize that simply looking in the direction of travel is not the same…

Riding by Numbers

JANUARY…It’s go time people! Traditionally January is the month that I start crunching all kinds of numbers in an effort to prepare my clients for the reality of a rapidly approaching show season. I’ve never been a fan of math,…
