About Us

 

Zoë MacDougall started riding at a summer camp in 1995. Camp turned into weekly lessons, which then turned into Pony Club and competing in local shows. As a young rider, Zoë went on to compete in dressage at Third Level, hunters and jumpers to 3'6". She has achieved the RA rating in the Canadian Pony Club and was a very active Pony Club member, competing at national competitions for both Quiz and Tetrathlon as well as Prairie Zone Championships in Dressage and Showjumping. She continues to promote Pony Club to her students to encourage them to become knowledgeable horse people as well as skillful riders. In 2017, she returned to showing after an extended break to focus on coaching and training.

Diana's son Brennan MacDougall also started riding in the summer of 1995. Always a competitive rider, he had his sights on the jumper ring from a young age. In Canada he has shown in Saskatchewan, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec. While training in Ontario he had the opportunity to compete on the Florida circuit and did so with his horse Velbo Z. 

Diana Pella and her husband Peter got involved with horses at the same time as their children. While non-riders themselves, they do enjoy watching and learning about the sport.
