Interviews & Profiles

Interviewed by Emily Penn - Emily George is one of Canada’s up-and-coming riders. The 26-year-old made her debut on the Canadian Show Jumping Team at the Nation’s Cup in Buenos Aires on November 25, 2011. Her teammates were Jonathan Asselin, Angela Covert-Lawrence, and Tiffany Foster. George was the only one of the four to go clear in the first round, and the team’s performance in the second round was enough to secure the Gold Medal for Canada.

It was just a moment. From exhilarating triumph to devastating loss in a second, Eric Lamaze was faced with a torment like no other when Hickstead, his beloved stallion, died upon completing a World Qualifier round at Verona, Italy, on November 6, 2011.

Interviewed by Melanie Huggett - Today’s horses are no strangers to air and long distance travel. Travel across Canada and over borders and oceans is necessary for many horses used in competition and breeding, as well as sale horses.

Interviewed by Jennifer Ward - Dynamic young dressage couple Tina and Jaimey Irwin of Stouffville, ON, have enjoyed an incredible year, welcoming their first child six months before Tina made her international debut and Jaimey coached one-half of the Canadian Dressage Team to a Silver Medal at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Interviewed by Melanie Huggett - Karren Winther is a realtor with RE/MAX Aldercenter Realty in Aldergrove, BC, where she helps horse lovers realize their dreams of owning that perfect equestrian property, whether it’s a small hobby farm or a large stable facility. An avid horsewoman herself, competing in National Reined Cowhorse Association competitions, Karren knows the special requirements necessary for keeping horses that other realtors might overlook.

Beth Underhill is one of Canada’s best known show jumpers, having competed in over 25 Nations’ Cup competitions as well as multiple Olympic Games, Pan Am Games, and World Equestrian Games. I have distinct childhood memories of sitting in front of the TV cheering her on as she and the black Monopoly flew over the fences at Calgary, Alberta’s Spruce Meadows.
