Rochelle Tardif – Barn Manager
I became heavily interesting in horses when I was about 5yrs old. I started riding lessons a couple years later at the age of 7. My knowledge and experience came from living at a friend’s farm where I rode almost every day and helped breed and train miniature horses. At the age of 15 I started working as a stable hand at an English barn East of Regina, SK and fell in love with English jumping. I started working and taking lessons there for the next year when I started assisting starting horses under saddle. My passion for horses only grew stronger at this point. In 2012 I decided to pursue my dreams of a career in the industry and enrolled at Olds College. Two years later I graduated with a Diploma in Equine Science majoring in English Horsemanship.
After college I spent 2 years training horses at a barn North of Regina. My knowledge and love for horses increased with each day. I passionately believe that in this industry you never stop learning and that it is a gift that horses give us. I endorse a natural and holistic approach to the care of horses. I believe that horses thrive when they are allowed to just be horses in as natural an environment as possible. I strive to see a natural and happy lifestyle for our beloved 4 legged friends!
I have now been living and working at DMC Stables since 2016 and enjoying every minute of it with my beautiful family Jim and Wyatt.
Robyn Wilson – Stable Hand
Robyn has been working for DMC Stables since August 2018. She became interested in horses as a young girl spending time with them when she could at her Aunts farm in Victoria, B.C. There she learned how ride along with basic horsemanship practices. She has taken a special interest in English jumping where she continues to take lessons and improve her skills here at DMC. Robyn has played an important role as part time staff and is constantly learning. She eventually would love to have a barn of her own someday. Robyn is always joined at work by at least one of her 3 lovable dogs who act as DMC’s greeting squad. Some of her other hobbies include, dog sitting, working on cars, and painting!
