I own three horses: an Andalusian mare, an Arab-Quarter Horse gelding, and an Arabian gelding. I enjoy starting horses under saddle, teaching cooperative care behaviours, and building strong foundations so that my horses can have the confidence and ability to engage in a wide range of activities.
I live with my horses, dogs, cat, and husband Dr David Lane, DACVSMR, a veterinary sports medicine specialist at Points East West Veterinary Services, in beautiful Squamish, BC, Canada. When not with my horses, I can usually be found mountain biking.
