Riding since the age of 4 in a variety of disciplines, she was introduced to dressage in 2000 and then joined Dressage Niagara in 2005 with a 4 year-old appy mare. The pair continued on the local show circuits obtaining several ApHC Leading the Nation titles in Working Hunter as well as an International High Point Dressage award. Cheryl sustained a serious injury in 2014 and had to take some time off, but found a new partner, Frank, to continue through the levels.
Louise was born in the UK with a love of horses. She didn’t learn to ride until her 20’s while volunteering at CARD, eventually competing at Hunter and Pre-Training Eventing. She also pursued her instructor certification and taught riders with disabilities for 10 years until moving to the Niagara Region. She has held various positions on the DN board since 2009.

Amber is an avid dressage rider and enthusiast. She rides and trains her horse, Bellator, 4-5 days a week and loves to work with him and see him develop. He's quite a character, and Amber finds it just as enjoyable to work with him on the ground as in the saddle. She's looking forward to making progress with him and moving up the levels.
Originally from Manitoba, Tara successfully showed Hunter/Jumper on behalf of her parent's Goldstream Stables. Dressage became a passion on its own and as the foundational training for any discipline, evident that Tara's 1.3 meter jumper was also Manitoba's level three dressage reserve champion. Tara moved to Niagara from Toronto in 2019 and is looking forward to involvement in dressage in the area.
