Board of Directors
Horses are in the blood for Jordan who has been riding since the age of 5. Her Grandfather, Mother and Aunts' history with horses has cultivated a bone deep passion for these amazing animals.
She has spent all of her youth competing on the A Circuit, showing in the upper level Hunters, Jumpers and Equitations. She now owns Platinum Equestrian where she focuses on coaching and training-up-and-coming riders to attain their riding dreams.
Jordan has joined the SVEA Board of Directors as President. Her goal is to promote Squamish as one of the top producers of young equestrians and quality horses by spreading awareness of the SVEA's importance in the community.
Louise first rode when she was 3 years old and has had the horse bug ever since.
She bought her horse Galano as a baby nearly 5 years ago and home broke and schooled him. She says he is a 1 in a million dream pony.
She lives in Squamish with her husband and 2 dogs and is a wildlife documentary filmmaker.
Stephanie owns Squamish Therapeutic Horse Riding who primarily teaches neuro-diverse students on Pipps, a 10 year old American Paint. She also teaches clients who own or lease their own horse.
Stephanie has been riding horses for 30 years. She started riding as a child, in the UK and grew up doing Pony Club, and competing in the sports of Tetrathlon and Eventing. Since moving to Canada, she has worked at one of the largest certified Therapeutic Riding Facilities in the country. In moving to Squamish, she noticed a lack of opportunities for riders with diverse needs, but there was a huge demand for lessons. This is how Squamish Therapeutic Horse Riding came to be.
Her priority for the SVEA, is to assist in growing the club, including erecting our coverall arena to allow for year round riding and equine experiences for people of all abilities in the Sea to Sky area. The community is growing at a rapid rate, and it’s time for us to have a community indoor arena to allow access to all.
Bond purchased her first horse at 13 and has been riding for 25 years.
She has dabbled in dressage and jumping but now rides for the pure joy of the sport! You can be sure to find her riding a cute little mare named Emma who she's been leasing since the fall of 2020.
Bond joins the SVEA Board of Directors as its new Secretary with her priorities focusing on community awareness, and knowledge regarding safety around horses.
Tracey's mom said that she was born on a horse. Her dad used to throw her up on her mom's fox hunter before she was 1 year old. If she wasn't riding then she pretended to be a horse.
She spent many years training and showing in a multitude of breeds and disciplines. She now owns her pony Beazie - or more like Beazie owns her!
Tracey returns to the SVEA Board of Directors as a Director in her second term. Her goal is to support equestrianism in the Squamish community.
Mandy has been riding horses since she was five years old. You can find her out and about with her heart horse Benny, seen in the photo here with her.
