    Tonya got her first pony at age nine and she broke her first horse, at age twelve. She went on to compete up to Preliminary Level in Eventing and competed with him in two BC Summer Games in Dressage. More recently, Tonya has been concentrating on the Hunter/Jumper discipline.

    After high school, Tonya moved to Victoria, British Columbia to attend UVIC. During the summer she began coaching to help pay for her education and by the time that she achieved a degree in English and Psychology, she was coaching and training professionally. Tonya’s original intention was to become a high school teacher and councilor but by graduation she had realized that coaching would be her true calling and was the field in which she had the most to offer.

    Over the years Tonya has coached students and trained horses of many different types and is experienced in dealing with almost any equestrian related situation. As one never stops learning about horses, she continues to train regularly with her own coach.

    Tonya married in 2000 and lives today with her husband and daughter at a leased equestrian facility in Victoria, British Columbia. This is where she does the majority of her teaching and training from.
