About Patti: "I rode horses from a young age, picked raspberries to purchase my first horse. I participated in 4-H Horse Club and Chilliwack Riding Club events. As a teen I purchased a Purebred Arabian and trained. I rode the B.C. Arabian Show Circuit. In 1990 I offered beginner riding lessons. I had many 4-H members. I taught them how to handle themselves and their horses in the show ring. They all became successful. I volunteered for a few years with the Cheam Vaulters. I was lunging their horses in preparation for competitions. I also trained and retrained a few of their horses to be better balanced. I have judged horse shows at fairs, 4-H clubs and riding clubs. I have held 3 day, summer riding clinics for over the past 15 years. I was a volunteer as an instructor for the Chilliwack PRDA for 17 years. In that time, I became a certified therapeutic riding instructor (CANTRA AI). I also became a CHA certified instructor in Western and English Riding. I was prepared to take the CEF (Canadian) Certification, but my horse became serious ill, just a few days before and I had to cancel. I never had the opportunity or money to pursue it again. I continued free-lance training horses and giving lessons. I travelled the lower mainland and taught on vacant lots, wide open fields and dead end roads. Built our indoor arena in 2010 and expanded on my riding lessons. Retired from School District 33 in 2017 to coach confidence and understanding the principals of riding to all ages."
