Terri-Lynn Rose of Wild Rose Equine: I am a graduate of the British Columbia College of Equine Therapy (BCCET) diploma program. Helping your horse feel it’s best and achieving balance is my ultimate goal. I am also a member of the team at Delaney Vet Services as both an equine sports therapist and as a vet assistant.
Modalities I currently offer are saddle fitting, applied kinesiology, massage, structural alignment, kinesiotaping, myofascial release, acupressure, and nutritional consulting.
Poor saddle fit is a huge factor in poor biomechanics. Fixing the saddle fit will help your horse stay balanced and be able to use themselves optimally, as well as stay comfortable and sound. I look forward to helping to teach the fundamentals of proper saddle fit to help with your equine journey!
Western Dressage with Tamara Turgeon of Rafter Diamond K Livestock
A little about Tamara:
I started riding at the age of eight, and as long as I’ve been riding horses, I have been showing them. Unable to settle on a specific discipline because I like them all, I have experience in competing in many different disciplines at many levels. I have also been involved in the Alberta 4H program as a member & a leader. I was an active coach for our 4H club, Rafter Ruff Ryderz Hoof & Woof, for 17 years, and have enjoyed watching kids grow up in the program and learn about horsemanship. Rafter Diamond K Livestock focuses on the vaquero style foundational horsemanship and have found that as long as you have a good foundation on your horse that you can take them in any direction and be successful. My many accomplishments in the industry have proven that putting horsemanship first will set you up for success, and I am known in the show ring as someone who is unwilling to compromise her horsemanship for a ribbon. A few years ago, I stumbled onto the fast-growing sport of Western Dressage and have dove right into this discipline. The movements and requirements of the sport are very closely in line with my beliefs of the progression of a horses training. I really enjoy introducing new people to this wonderful discipline.
