Zara Schultz was hired by Pelmac Stables in 2007 to run the competitive lesson program as well as ride, promote, and show Pelmac's hunter/ jumper prospects. Zara has had extensive experience competing on the "A" circuit within the hunter, equitation, and jumper divisions. Zara has studied the sport of showjumping in Canada, the USA, and Europe, which has allowed her to view many aspects and theories behind the care, management and training of showjumpers. She believes in combining strong flatwork with the over fences training so that horses become fit, confident, balanced, disciplined, and rideable.
Brennan MacDougall 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.
Zoe 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. Zoe has gone on to compete in dressage at Third Level, hunters and jumpers to 3'6", and complete her B2 level in Pony Club. She's a very active Pony Club member and has competed at national competitions for both Quiz and Tetrathlon as well as Prairie Zone events in Dressage and Showjumping.
Peter MacDougall and Diana Pella got involved with horses at the same time as their children. While non-riders themselves, they do enjoy watching and learning about the sport. They are dedicated to expanding their businesses of boarding horses and the breeding and selling of Canadian Warmbloods.
