"My grandparents worked with horses, so did my parents. We have five generations of history in Vancouver. If you ever visit Vancouver go look for Southlands. Southlands is about one square mile. It is the only area within city limits that is zoned agriculturally. When my grandparents moved there everyone kept horses. When my parents had kids they supported their family by taking photos at horse shows and owning a tack shop. They were the first official photographers at Spruce Meadows. They wrote a book called “Horses in Focus”. Today my parents and two brothers still live there and still run a riding school and farm. Please stop by and say hi, they will appreciate it.
My Dad is a Grand Prix show jumping rider and coached the Modern Pentathletes at the 2012 Olympics in London. My mum is a Grand Prix Dressage rider. Today Jennifer manages Southlands Farm along with my brother, Jordan. My other brother, Telf, manages Southlands Riding Club and is also a Real Estate agent, with an emphasis on horse properties. My parents have coached me since I started riding. Now my wife and my parents help me.
Today my work combines 3-Day Eventing and Horsemanship. Although I love the thrill and challenge of eventing, if I could never ride again I would be perfectly happy to spend my days working with horses from the ground. Sinead and I spend the summers in New Jersey and the winters in Florida. So if you are in the area please visit, I’d love to catch up with you."
