Kerri has been involved with horses since bugging her parents for riding lessons at the tender age of 8 years old. After a series of lessons in ballet, swimming, figure skating, tennis and piano, the parents were finally worn down enough to agree to riding lessons. The years since that fateful day have seen Kerri take part as a rider, competitor, judge, volunteer and always an avid fan of sport.
Volunteer duties these days include Chair of Equine Canada’s Sport Council, Chair of Equine Canada’s Ethics Committee, Equine Canada Board Director, Canadian Olympic Committee “A” Session Member for Equestrian, Member of the Canadian Olympic Committee’s Sport Partners Relations Committee and at the very top of the list….very proud Team Leader for the Canadian Equestrian Team.
This blog will attempt to give you a behind-the-scenes look at what happens in the lead-up and during a major games outing. The saying “it takes a village” has never been more true than when talking about what it takes for our Canadian equestrian teams taking part.
