Sylvia has been pursuing her love of horses for the last 25 years. She was lucky enough to have had exposure to all different disciplines with her first pony, Bachelor Buttons (Buttons). Despite the variety of riding styles she enjoyed, since the age of 12 she has dedicated herself to the sport of dressage thanks to her second horse, Tarantella (Telly). Since then she has had the opportunity to develop her skills and train with a variety of coaches, transforming her into the rider and teacher she is today.
By all accounts, Bruce is Sylvia's better half. While he never planned on getting back into the horse business after a lengthy career in harness racing, here we are! Bruce shares in Sylvia's dream of running a premium dressage training facility in the north. He provides exceptional care of the property and can fix anything - even the stuff Marquesa (Ravyn) breaks. He also has a keen eye for proper horse movement and mechanics, and a wealth of knowledge about horse health and care.
