Cathy Colwell (McAllister), a riding instructor certified by the British Horse Society. August 14 1987.

Cathy’s intuitive nature with horses is a great asset to her philosophy that correct schooling on the flat is the foundation to success.   Cathy’s varied experiences in the horse world have led her to adopt an adaptable attitude, adjusting her methods and teaching style to each individual horse or rider.

She is a knowledgeable and sensitive professional who has been a full-time trainer/instructor for over 33 years.  She has had experience with horses for over 55 years.   

Originally from Kingston, Cathy has always loved animals and horses. She has been riding horses as long as she can remember.

Cathy attended Queen's University to study English, Drama  and Psychology, but the passion of her life has always been horses.

A Meeting with Pegotty Henriques (author of Balanced Riding and many other books) became a turning point in Cathy’s career. She was drawn to the insightful, caring way that teaching can help all riders to discover harmony while training in a classical style without harshness or brutality. Peggotty showed her that riding dressage is something everyone can do well and enjoy.

Following Pegotty’s advice, Cathy went to England to take an intensive program to obtain her teaching certificate. Riding at UrchinwoodManor.co.uk, and taking various clinics with Baron Blixen Finecke and others who teach there, helped Cathy to further develop her teaching style and knowledge base.

Cathy continues to take clinics and expand her knowledge and skills. Over the years, she has coached students and trained horses of many different types and is experienced in dealing with almost any equestrian-related situation. She has repeatedly produced some of the area's best horse/rider combinations.

Her students range from short stirrup pony Champions  to riders who have gone onto being successful,  Professional Eventers' and Dressage riders.

 The professionalism and  compassion of staff, instructors and volunteers, empower our riders with and without disabilities, to achieve their riding goals

 Cathy's Husband Joe, aka the BBQ master and Lawn king, has been an unwavering supporter  and contributes to the farm in too many ways to list.

This was Cathy's qualifying ride to go to the Ontario Championships. He was a bit of a devil horse but Cathy got him going and successfully showing. He is still with his loving owner and she was eventing him herself until he retired. He is aged now but was 9 yr old when Cathy was competing him.  

Finding the bond between horses and their riders,
